God’s Way, Not Ours

Exodus 2:11-17

When Stephanie and her husband first started dating, they disagreed a lot. Their disagreements stemmed from him treating her how he wanted to be treated and her treating him how she wanted to be treated. Over time, they began to realize that while their intentions were good, they needed to approach each other differently. Stephanie began to ask him what he needed in situations, and he did the same for her. Through this, they learned what the other needed rather than assuming they knew.

In Exodus 2, Moses sees the pain of his people and wants to help. Coming from a place of power, he does not understand why the people are upset that he killed their oppressor. It is only when he flees into the desert and is confronted by God that he sees a better way to free the people.

How often do we, like Moses, run ahead of God thinking we know best how to help people? Just because we have good intentions does not mean we are following God’s will. The first step in helping should be to pause and pray.

    Amen, amen, my brothers and sisters. A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Provers 16:9 Let us pray for the Holy One’s direction in everything we do, say, think. Let us consult with the Lord the way David did. Blessings to you who are reading this. The Lord loves you so much.
