THE SET UP
MOSES: THE BURNING BUSH
A man who was raised by the royal family, living in Egypt with the most academic and scientific society among ancient societies at that time. He rode in a princely chariot, if he floated the Nile, it was a magnificent ship with musical accompaniment; he lived the royal life. He lived a comfortable life and had almost everything he wanted. He would be the next man to become Pharaoh of Egypt.
We also know that Moses’ Hebrew mother had an influence on his life, teaching him about what’s right from wrong. The simple things of life. The same woman that trusted God with her son is about to see one of the most amazing miracles that God would perform on Earth. For Moses, it would be an awakening, a life change. It would become his destiny. Moses is about to be set up.
At times I find myself beginning to take the easy road. The mindset that God’s got this. He has it all under control. As this statement is true. We also must do our part. Trust! We can’t have the mindset that whatever happens, happens. The more passive mindset we have leaves bigger “loop-holes” for the enemy to barge in on. We must stand and lean on the Word. We must have a lifestyle of prayer that shakes the gates of Hell. The complacency that we have is the room for the enemy to walk in. Guard your mind by taking every thought that raises up against the knowledge of God by the obedience of Christ.
Like Moses, we get all caught up in the comfort. There’s no more discernment, no more fear of the Lord. You are numb to your surroundings. All you want is things to satisfy the crave for more things. When will it stop? You might be setting yourself up for a set up.
