By Faith – Not Afraid, Looking Ahead

Good morning! “It was by faith that Moses’ parents hid him for three months when he was born. They saw that God had given them an unusual child, and they were not afraid to disobey the king’s commandIt was by faith that Moses, when he grew up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to share the oppression of God’s people instead of enjoying the fleeting pleasures of sinHe thought it was better to suffer for the sake of Christ than to own the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking ahead to his great reward.” Hebrews 11:23-26 NLT.

Moses in his doubt and at times when he felt insecure about what God was calling him to do, basically told God I think you have the wrong person. Moses said, who should I tell them sent me…God replied, “I AM” (Genesis 3:13-15, paraphrased)

Sometimes we have to make the unpopular or uncomfortable decision to follow Christ. We may feel as though we are betraying family or friends, however the Lord must be our first priority – “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:22 NLT

God is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Keep looking ahead.

Father God, thank you for the gift of today. Thank you for another opportunity to read your word and live by faith. Lord, you know sometimes we struggle with our faith, but thank you for never leaving us and for reminding us of your faithfulness. Lord, we pray that you give us boldness to do the things you have called us to. Give us a clear vision, mentors to help guide us in the process, and faith to be obedient and fearless. Cover us today as we prepare to go to work, to school, etc. Be our strength as we go through today. In Jesus name, Amen.

Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!
