WHY DID YOU SEND ME STUDY ON WHY DID YOU SEND ME QUESTION WITH WHY DID YOU
SEND ME ANSWER WITH WHY DID YOU SEND ME MESSAGE
Good day to all of you visiting
Bread on this fine day. When we left off, Moses had gone to Pharaoh and
told him the message that God sent, to let His people go. Pharaoh, saying
that the if the Israelites were thinking such things, they must have too
much time on their hands, ordered that no more straw be given to the
Israelites, but demanded the same amount of bricks be made each day. The
officers of the children of Israel that Pharaohís taskmasters had put in
charge of them were beaten when the bricks werenít made.
They told Moses what happened and
Moses returned to the Lord and asked, Why have you treated these people like
this? Why did you send me? And God said to Moses, Now youíll see what Iíll
do to Pharaoh. With my power, heíll let MY PEOPLE go and with my power,
heíll drive them out of his land.
DID YOU SEND ME LESSON WITH WHY DID YOU SEND ME EXPLANATION AND WHY DID YOU
SEND ME SUMMARY
God said to Moses, I am the Lord and I
appeared to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob by the name of God Almighty, but by my
name JEHOVAH, they didnít know me. I began my covenant with them, to give
them the land of Canaan, the land of their journeying where they were
strangers. Iíve heard their crying because the Egyptians keep them in
bondage and I remember my promise. So say to the children of Israel, I am
the Lord and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians
and Iíll free you with great justice. And I will take you to be my people,
and I will be to you a God and youíll know that I am the Lord your God who
saved you. I will bring you to the land that I promised to Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob and Iíll give it to you to own forever, I am the Lord.
That, friends, was Godís answer to the
question ... "Why did you send me?"
Moses told the children of Israel what
the Lord said, but they wouldnít listen because their spirits were so
anguished from the cruelty they were facing. God told Moses to go and tell
Pharaoh again to let His people go. Moses said, The children of Israel
didnít listen to me, why would Pharaoh listen to someone like me who isnít
even considered an Israelite?
The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron
again and told them it was their responsibility to the children of Israel
and to command Pharaoh king of Egypt to bring the children of Israel out of
the land of Egypt.
If you would like, you can read
through all the names of the heads of the tribes of Israel that were in
Egypt that Moses was to help deliver. They are listed in
Exodus 6:14-25. We wonít list them all here, but keep in mind that the
bloodline is an important thing and itís particularly interesting when you
do specific studies of a certain tribe or person. In any case, at the end
of this chapter, Moses repeated that the Lord told him to speak to Pharaoh
and tell him everything that He said. And he also repeated that he didnít
think that Pharaoh would listen to him.
WHY DID YOU SEND ME INFORMATION WITH WHY DID YOU SEND ME MEANING
AND WHY DID YOU SEND ME DISCUSSION
There have been times in all of our
lives when weíve done something that we just canít believe we did, because
we thought we couldnít. The truth is, there are many things we canít and
didnít do on our own. Without the words of God, without the hand of God,
without the will of God Ö well, just ask Moses if he could have gone in to
speak to Pharaoh without God. Sometimes it takes some nudging by the Lord
to get us to finally give Him our attention, surrender our pride and let Him
work through us. Just because your umbrella doesnít turn into a serpent
doesnít mean that God doesnít work through you in other ways. Letís keep an
eye on how God used Moses through this study of Exodus and try to recognize
in our own lives when the Lord is using us to help someone He loves in one
way or another.
In our next story, weíll find out Pharaohís reaction as Moses and Aaron show
him the signs that the Lord showed them. What will it take to soften
Pharaohís hardened heart and let Godís people go? Come on back and
find out as we look for the answer in our next stories in Daily Bread.
