Spreading the love of Jesus...the Cowboy Way!

 Acts 7:34b-36

"'Now come, I will send you back to Egypt.' This is the same Moses whom they had rejected with the words, 'Who made you ruler and judge?' He was sent to be their ruler and deliverer by God himself, through the angel who appeared to him in the bush. He led them out of Egypt and did wonders and miraculous signs in Egypt, at the Red Sea and for forty years in the desert." Thoughts for Today:
As Stephen recounts the story of Moses to the Sanhedrin, he uses these words of God to Moses, "Now come, I will send you back to Egypt." I just absolutely love that statement! God had just finished telling Moses how he had seen the oppression of His people, heard their groaning, and was going to come down to set them free and make things right. Moses must have been thinking how fun it will be to be a spectator to this event -- he must have been shocked when God told him, "I will send you back to Egypt."
Isn't that just like us? We want God to get in there and fix our problem (right the injustice and deliver the innocent). But isn't that just like God to say, "Okay -- come on -- right now -- let's do it -- hmmm….who will I send? -- oh yeah -- I'll send you!" That's usually not what we have in mind when we ask for God's intercession. We want God to do it and leave us on the sideline to watch.
In our previous devotion I related the story of a father, who with the Lord's help, rescued his children from certain death. What do you think the outcome of that story would have been if following his prayer for the Lord's intercession, he would have escaped out a window and while standing on the curb, watched to see if the Lord would save his children? The children probably would have perished.
God raises "deliverers" during times of need. Why? I believe it is because God makes himself known -- less from the miracle than through the testimony and life of the one who accepts God's call. Moses accepted God's call, and the Israelites were led out of captivity as a result.
Questions to Ponder:
In what area of your life are you asking for God to intercede? When (not if) He asks you, "Now come, I will send you," how will you answer?
