6/28 Acts 7:20-29
“At that time Moses was born — a beautiful child in God’s eyes. His parents cared for him at home for three months. 21 When at last they had to abandon him, Pharaoh’s daughter found him and raised him as her own son. 22 Moses was taught all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and he became mighty in both speech and action. 23 “One day when he was forty years old, he decided to visit his relatives, the people of Israel. 24 During this visit, he saw an Egyptian mistreating a man of Israel. So Moses came to his defense and avenged him, killing the Egyptian. 25 Moses assumed his brothers would realize that God had sent him to rescue them, but they didn’t. 26 “The next day he visited them again and saw two men of Israel fighting. He tried to be a peacemaker. ‘Men,’ he said, ‘you are brothers. Why are you hurting each other?’ 27 “But the man in the wrong pushed Moses aside and told him to mind his own business. ‘Who made you a ruler and judge over us?’ he asked. 28 ‘Are you going to kill me as you killed that Egyptian yesterday?’ 29 When Moses heard that, he fled the country and lived as a foreigner in the land of Midian, where his two sons were born.
Taking God’s will into our own hands always results in failure. We are to do God’s will but in so doing we have to be under the constant leadership and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Christ in us is the key to fulfilling God’s will.
