THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
YOU HAVE TO BE PREPARED FOR WHERE GOD IS TAKING YOU
As a young man, Moses had the DREAM that he was supposed to deliver God’s people from their slavery in Egypt, but he made a mistake that put him into a NIGHT season. After he spent forty years in a desert place, God said, “All right, Moses, NOW you’re ready for Me to use you to deliver My PEOPLE.” Moses had learned to WAIT on God, to LISTEN to His VOICE, to walk in HUMILITY. He came up higher in his CHARACTER.
You have to be PREPARED for where God is TAKING you. Moses couldn’t HANDLE it the first time, but God didn’t write him off. He used the night season to REFINE him. In the NIGHT seasons, you need to pass the tests, change where you need to CHANGE, and deal with the areas that God is bringing to LIGHT. THEN, as He did for Moses, because your character has been DEVELOPED, God will bring you OUT of that night season and get you to where you’re SUPPOSED to be.
Numbers 12:3, NIV
Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.
