Feeble Men to Kingdom Men Of Exploits
22nd NOVEMBER, 2021
“But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So, I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me.” [2 Corinthians 12:9 TPT]
We have read, over the course of the month the many definitions, purposes, benefits, and uses of grace. Today we look at the ability of God’s grace to make feeble men become men of exploits, zeroing in on the life of Moses.
Babies are usually outdoored because of the joy they bring everyone around them. However, in Moses’ case, his life started by being hidden and cowering away in a basket for fear of being killed. You see, the Pharaoh at the time gave an edict to “Throw every newborn Hebrew boy into the Nile River. But you may let the girls live.” (Exodus 1:20)
Moses not only starts life as a baby in hiding but many years after he had been adopted by the Egyptian princess, he kills an Egyptian, in defense of his kinsman. He gets called out on it the day after and then flees into hiding because he was afraid! Moses, whilst in hiding marries and gives birth but some years later, God calls him to be the deliverer of Israel from the hands of the cruel Egyptians, but Moses answers the call with no end of excuses.
All Moses knew and was accustomed to, was feebleness – from his birth up until that very point of his call. However, when the grace of God comes on us and we allow grace to do its work in us, it propels us from feebleness to vigor and robustness.
Moses, by the grace of God, goes on to lead the Israelites out of captivity and by the same power and enablement of grace, performs some mighty miracles. It is said that Moses walked closely with God and spoke to God face to face, as with a friend. Moses is also known to have written the most books in the old testament(first 5 books of the Bible). Who would have thought a man who lived in hiding for so long would go on to perform such exploits?
The same grace that caused a shift in Moses’ life is available to us today! Allow grace to do its work in you, and like Moses, you will see yourself being transformed from living a life of obscurity and feebleness to one of boldness, tenacity, and strength. God has made available everything we need for life and godliness. His grace is immeasurably available, to make us become men and women of exploits.
Grace is abundant, God’s strength is made available in any weakness – feebleness is a weakness! Are you ready to step out and do exploits?
Thank You, Father, that Your grace transforms us and propels us to do exploits for Your kingdom. We refuse to sit idle with such a wonderful gift and make the decision to go out and do exploits. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
