Now the LORD had said to Moses in Midian, “Go back to Egypt, for all the men who wanted to kill you are dead.” So Moses took his wife and sons, put them on a donkey and started back to Egypt. And he took the staff of God in his hand.
Moses had been away from his adopted home in Egypt for a long while. But in this time of his life, God was calling him to go back. He had a mission from God – to set his people free. Even so, it still required a wilderness journey.
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to leave a comfortable place. Many people have had to move for various reasons. I have had to make a move a few times. It’s not that tough to pack up and fill boxes. But when the moving truck is all loaded and you are looking into an empty house or apartment – a subtle transformation occurs.
Suddenly, without warning, the place that you’ve called home for this part of your life is no longer yours. Now you’re on the road and headed for a new destination.
We may be very content where our life is right now. Then, when God calls us to a higher level, we can never be satisfied this way again. Remember that we need to be a people who are packed and ready to go. This world is not our home and the things of this world will never truly fulfill us.
When you go before the Lord today reiterate to Him your total commitment to following His path for your life – no matter where it leads. Thank Him for your destiny in Him. Then be open and listening for any course changes He may speak to you this day.
