Why Humility!

We are still on Moses’ case. Looking at the success he had in his lifetime and still, he was able to be mentioned as the most humble person ever to live on earth. Having meetings with God face to face and seeing the form of God, I was just meditating if it were me maybe having meetings not with God, but maybe with my President! Probably I will name-drop the name in every deal. I will post the photos with him to my status, or here on the blog to impose my acceptance based on that achievement. What about you? How many people will be in prison just because they messed up with a friend of someone with the highest office in the land?
Check this scripture,

Deuteronomy 34:10-11
10But since then there has not arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face,
11in all the signs and wonders which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt, before Pharaoh, before all his servants, and in all his land,

Moses had such an audience with God. His relationship with God and how he presented himself to the people was not anyway close to what some of us would do given those privileges. He would actually hide the glory from people with a veil.

Now, of particular interest is his relationship with his father-in-law.
There are factors I want you to notice in order to build something.
Jethro was an Idolater, but not only that he was a tribal leader.
Moses was a believer in one God and leader of the Israelites. When Moses became Jethro’s son-in-law, he was a fugitive running away from the wrath of Pharaoh. Needless to add, these were some of the things that could not have led to a wholesome father-in-law/son-in-law relationship.

We see that after Jethro heard about the miracles God did through Moses, he came to meet Moses, please note another strong personality coming to another great leader!

Something happened here, Jethro changed his understanding of gods and believed in monotheism contrary to His belief of many gods that is polytheism.
He did not resent the fact that he was mistaken, and his son-in-law was right.
In verse 11, he made a dramatic turnaround-denouncing Idol worship.(Exodus 18:11), “Now I know that the Lord is greater than all gods.” How many people who are praying and fasting for their relatives to come to this realization?I mean, giving their lives to Christ?

Lesson 1
Some of our relatives are not receiving Jesus Christ because of our pride hence even if they see miracles happening, they resent instead of repenting

Moses further received counsel from Jethro about his leadership style. Moses was judging all the people by himself.
(Exodus 18:13-26), Jethro told Moses that he should delegate the judging process to others. Many family feuds have started because an in-law offered an unsolicited advice or criticism. Moses, however,was unperturbed. In fact, he was grateful and implemented it immediately.

The ability of a strong character like Moses to take advice ministers a to lot of people, believe me with these virtues we will do more good.
How many believers can take advice from a Muslim brother? Selah!

Lesson 2
Don’t let your ego deter you from doing the right thing even if the advice comes from the least likely people.

If we operate more like this, many friends and relatives will begin to appreciate what God is doing in our lives better.

God bless you! There are many things we can share about this subject we can do that in the comment section.
Remember I love to learn from you too!

  1. I truly pray for the grace which was upon Moses. His character and humility as a whole. If it was me, ohhh yes I’ll be flaunting all over the socials about how much I’ve met the president and spoke with him face to face. We all need to check the heart because it never lies.
    The Bible says humble yourself by the side of the Lord and He shall lift you to. Many people sadly lift themselves up.

    I just loved the second lesson. It teaches us a lot. And so does the first one. Reminded me of the quote that miracles happen to only those who believe in them. God can be in any shape, we just need to see the signals and shelve our pride .

    1. Oooh yes.
      I think if we become religious and legalistic, we can easily miss God.
      The Pharisees missed Christ because they had there own way they wanted Him to show up.
      The list expected people can help us but sometimes pride can blind us

        I think it comes with experience sometimes. As we start getting mature, we start realising the true meaning behind the things that happen, however ordinary they may seem. It’s then that we start following the right path, correct?

        But personally I think even without experience and passage of much time, even the little thing you learn you have to apply and have some principles you live by.
        I stand to be corrected though!

    The part about the veil speaks to me of the way that God declares himself in you on his own, it’s not an effort of our part, it’s his enduring presence. He shows you off, so you won’t need to.
    Thank you brother.
