Scripture Union Daily Guide 16th January 2023 MESSAGE
God has His own job, and He assigns ours to us. Sometimes, however, we leave ours undone and try to do His job for Him. It never works! Moses evidently knew all about his Israelite identity and of God’s promise to their ancestors; and he was unhappy with their suffering (v.11). With his privilege and authority as adopted royalty, he believed that he was well equipped to help the God of Abraham to fulfil His promise. Killing one member of the hated race would be a start of the liberation of his people (v.12). It backfired, and the result was to drive him far away from where he could be of help (v.15)! On self exile!
Thankfully, God knows His job and He is able to do it, even when our well-meaning blunders cause a setback. He can re-set the clock and plot a new route which will still end up in the fulfilment of His plan and purpose. And so, God led Moses to the home of Jethro in Midian where he was to learn all about life and living in a desert environment. These are lessons which would serve him and his people well for forty years in the wilderness.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
