God didn’t tell Moses that he would be chased by armies, spend 40 years in a dessert or supervise the preparation of the tabernacle. All he said at the beginning was… Go back to your people; I’m sending you to Pharaoh.
Moses obeyed, even if it did take him a while to get with the program.
When Saul/ Paul asked the Lord what he wanted him to do, the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.” And he did.
God brought these people to big places in their lives…But first…each of these folks had to do their firsts!!
Let’s get down to brass tacks here. What has God called us to do in our homes, with our families, in our churches, at our jobs? It’s generally quite a small thing to start. Let’s get busy–first doing our firsts.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. (Genesis 1:5, KJV)
Prayer – God, help us slow down and start where starting begins…at the first thing you told us to do. Amen
