Exodus 14:12 (NKJV) Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, ‘Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians’? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness.”
In the book of Exodus, Moses returned to his Egyptian homeland to free his people from slavery. The goal: make them into a nation and lead them to the Promised Land. Of course, no one expected it to take forty years. The people felt duped by Moses and abandoned by God. Do you ever feel like what’s the use or where is God when I need Him?
Moses struggled with his people’s daily needs, divisiveness, and disobedience; he built this struggling new society into a powerful nation. A sense of pride took hold. They were God’s chosen people, slaves released into freedom. Their numbers multiplied. People feared them. They would reach the Promised Land and conquer their enemies. Can you see yourself doing something real meaningful for God? Go for it!
Sisters and brothers when one dream dies, it leaves room for a new one, (Praise God). I have had some dreams die. I was amazed at the weight that lifted because the dream died. In other words I was free to dream again, with no energy wasted on doom and gloom dreams. Sometimes the death of dreams is what it takes to build the character needed to build the vision God has for your life! Dream again and trust God to work out the details. Have a marvelous day!
