“By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasurers of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.” Hebrews 11:24-26
Dear Heavenly Father, Faith makes us different. You gave Moses a wealthy upbringing with all the riches of Egypt but you never intended him to exploit that for himself. You wanted him to use it as a leader to be prepared for bigger things. He understood your purposes and was willing to give up an easy life to accomplish great things with you. He led Israel out of captivity and he signed up for the last 40 years of his life to be hard labor. I want to be like Moses, living for you no matter the cost. I cannot do it on my own. Give me the will and the power to overcome the self indulgent messages of my culture to become a servant who burns brightly for you right to the end of his life. Amen.
God went all in for us. Let’s go all in for him too.
