Moses was very meek, above all the men which were on the face of the earth. —Numbers 12:3
Moses was a prideful and arrogant man, ready to take care of God's people (his way) when he lived in Pharaoh's palace. God took all of that away, when He sent him into the wilderness. Moses went from presiding in the palace to watching sheep in the desert.
It took God forty years to purge Moses of everything that blocked His ability to use him to deliver the children of Israel. Forty long years in the desert changed haughtiness to humility and hostility to harmony with God.
God's purpose in our lives is to bring us to a realization that everything we have of value is from Him alone. God has a plan and purpose for you, and He will remove anything that will hinder your effectiveness in fulfilling His plan—your job, your friends, your surroundings, your money—anything. God will break all threads of independence until we bow our knee and say, "Yes, Lord."
In your marriage or family, say, "Yes, Lord." In your finances, say, "Yes, Lord." In your emotions and thoughts, say, "Yes, Lord." In your work, say, "Yes, Lord." In your relationships, say, "Yes, Lord." In your service and your church, say, "Yes, Lord."
Jesus, to everything You speak into my
life, I say, "Yes, Lord." Amen.
