Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth. – Numbers 12:3 (KJV)
It is hard to imagine the man who had to flee to the dessert after killing an Egyptian soldier as the meekest man on earth. Something surely transpired in the 40 years between fleeing to the dessert and the time God appeared to him in the burning bush.
Time and experience, when handled appropriately, will work patience and humility in us. Many years of herding sheep in the wilderness helped the brash young Moses mature into a meek and humble man that could be used of God to bring Israel out of Egypt.
There was more to the change in Moses than time and experience
though. Something happened in him at the burning bush. There before the Lord, barefoot and spiritually naked, Moses went through a transformation.
When God spoke to him of his purpose for him Moses replied, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” God’s answer, in so many words, was that it wasn’t about Moses – it was about God and the children of Israel. God had been preparing Moses for this job since he was born and now he was revealing himself to him.
God said to Moses, “I will go with you.” Then Moses asked, “Who will I say sent me?” God replied, “I AM who I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: “I AM has sent me to you.” It was this meeting with the great I AM that forever changed Moses.
Humility and meekness is not measured by ability or achievement. These character traits cannot be measured by standards men use to measure success.
They are shown in the life of men and women who are committed to the purposes of God. These are people who have stood before the great I AM with their own burning bush experience.
Is God calling you to take off your shoes and stand before him?
Prayer: Lord, I have heard your call, but I have been slow to respond. It is not easy to surrender my ambitions for your purposes. Help me to do that. Amen.
Principle: Time and experience, when handled appropriately, will work patience and humility in us.
Affirmation: Patient commitment to principles greater than myself produces humility and a meekness which God use in me.
Reflection: Years in the desert tending sheep had mellowed Moses. Now, at the burning bush, he goes through a spiritual transformation. It was there that he learned meekness. His experiences, the good and the bad, were not about him but about God's purpose for his life. Reflect on your own life: Have you had your burning bush experience yet?
