“By an act of faith, Moses’ parents hid him away for three months after his birth. They saw the child’s beauty, and they braved the king’s decree.
By faith, Moses, when grown, refused the privileges of the Egyptian royal house. He chose a hard life with God’s people rather than an opportunistic soft life of sin with the oppressors. He valued suffering in the Messiah’s camp far greater than Egyptian wealth because he was looking ahead, anticipating the payoff. By an act of faith, he turned his heel on Egypt, indifferent to the king’s blind rage. He had his eye on the One no eye can see, and kept right on going. By an act of faith, he kept the Passover Feast and sprinkled Passover blood on each house so that the destroyer of the firstborn wouldn’t touch them.
By an act of faith, Israel walked through the Red Sea on dry ground. The Egyptians tried it and drowned.”
-Hebrews 11:23-29 (The Message)
Going through our lives being unsure of our future and what is down the road can be very unsettling. The bible teaches us of many scenarios in which men and women of God did not fear the unknown, for they had someone much greater by their side and overruling their lives.
God calls us out to live by faith, and that is exactly what Moses did in this passage. No matter his past, he still remained focused and had had his eyes set on the one that couldn’t be seen. With that leap of faith, God blessed him abundantly and made him to be the leader of the Israelite’s and led them to freedom!
It’s not easy, I know. But think about how we have someone so mighty and powerful watching out for us. Someone who let their son die so that you may have life. How can we not pour out our lives for the most romantic God? A God who loves us so much, that he gives us new air to fill our lungs each and every day! Think about all the times that God has saved you, over and over again. You’re alive and well right now because of his grace.
We see so much proof of his outpouring love and mercy everyday, why should we even question giving over our lives completely to him? Let him take over your life and show you beauty you’ve never seen before. You are a child of the most high King and he has such great plans for your life!
Live by faith, and see what He can do for you!
Love and Blessings,
