Oh, The Places You Will Go!
I'm reminded of Moses in Exodus.
"Now, behold, the cry of the sons of Israel has come to Me; furthermore, I have seen the oppression with which the Egyptians are oppressing them. Therefore, come now, and I will send you to Pharaoh, so that you may bring My people, the sons of Israel, out of Egypt." Exodus 3:9-10
The great I AM called Moses to ask Pharaoh to let His people go three days into the desert to serve Him. As Moses stood before the burning bush, he couldn't imagine addressing the king of Egypt by himself. God could never use him to ease the burdens of the Israelites.
Yet, that was only the beginning of God's plan.
The same Moses staring at the glow of the burning bush would never have placed himself as the tool used to preform ten plagues, or the leader of the mass exodus of approximately a million people walking out of Egypt with its wealth in hand through the Red Sea over dry land.
Following the Lord with His Word in our heart, we are sure we'll never be capable of accomplishing it. Yet, from the first step to the last, the difference between who we were then to who we are now, the distance from where we started to where we stand, never in our wildest dreams would we have seen the impossible accomplished.
Never would we have taken that first step.
Nor would we be so intrigued to agree to the next adventure.
