THE WORD OF MOSES

Today's Reading: Exodus 8

Key Verse: Exodus 8:13a

So the Lord did according to the word of Moses.


Moses spoke, and God backed him up with supernatural power. Some have used this reality to get God to do their will. No, no, we are to do God's will. First we find out the will of God, and then we speak, and God acts accordingly. Jesus' word was always effective, 100% of the time. Why? Because He could say, "The Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do". Jesus got up very early each morning to spend time with His Father in prayer.

Jesus functioned as a Man filled with the Holy Spirit. He was, is, and ever shall be fully God, but He laid aside the exercise of His Deity. He took time to find His Father's plan for the new day, and then did what His Father wanted Him to do. This is also the way we can know what to speak, and God will do that which we speak as He did for Moses. Moses started his epic task at 80. 80 years ago today David was born at home in the little village of Campbell's Bay, Quebec. Like Moses David thinks he would try to talk God out of a job.


PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father God, we want what You want. Help us to speak out that which You give us to speak so that "Your will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven." We pray this in the Name of Jesus who always, without fail, did Your perfect will. Amen!
