Seeing Through the Eyes of Faith
Here is something to think about.
Even though it was in Moses’ heart to see his people set free from slavery, his method of going about it yielded only one rescue and that was a temporary one, Ex 2:11 . Many preachers say that God is concerned about the “one” , which is true, however, I believe many are like Moses who try to set the captive free using their strength and their abilities they have not spent time in the desert alone with the Lord and therefore can’t see through the eyes of faith.(Luk 4:1 THEN JESUS, full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led in [by] the [Holy] Spirit
Luk 4:2 For (during) forty days in the wilderness (desert), where He was tempted (tried, tested exceedingly) by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they were completed, He was hungry. Luk 4:14 Then Jesus went back full of and under the power of the [Holy] Spirit into Galilee, and the fame of Him spread through the whole region round about. Power comes after successfully passing the Desert Testing )
( When Moses returned once again to Egypt he had seen the Lord, he heard Him speak, and had a revelation of God’s heart towards His people and had come to an end of himself and trust in his own abilities and thus he was now sent by the Lord and so rescued a nation.
We must stop thinking on a small-scale for The Lord says in Isaiah 54:2,3 Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; SPARE (restrain) NOT (see through the eyes of faith) lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes . For you will spread abroad to the right hand and to the left; and your offspring will posses the nations and make desolate the cities to be inhabited.
Remember , when God commissioned Moses, he did so at ,”the burning bush” , thus Moses was commissioned by the fire of the Lord to deliver His people. In acts 2 the 120 gathered in the upper room were commissioned by God’s fire and the start of the church was 3000 strong in one day!!!
People are attracted by fire. People will come to see a “burning house” When suddenly there came a sound from heaven like the rushing of a violent tempest blast, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting, Acts 2:2. Note that the phenomenon was not limited to the upper room
