Day 2: Moses’s Invitation
Have you ever been invited to a large event or gathering and you weren’t sure what to do? Maybe there was an expectation that you would give a speech, or interact with politicians, or some other requirement that was completely out of the ordinary for you?
This is the situation in which Moses finds himself. Except he’s not just supposed to give a speech, nor is he just encouraged to interact with a major political figure. It was so much bigger than that. Moses was invited to meet with the most powerful world leader in his day, and tell him that he needed to permit all of the enslaved people to leave and not come back.
While God may not be inviting you to sit down with world leaders to discuss foreign policy, He is inviting you to be a part of some big things. As Henry Blackaby writes, one of the best ways to experience God is to “…find where God is already at work, and join Him in it.” In the story of Moses, God was already at work in leading His people to more fully trust Him. Consider the likelihood that God is already at work in significant ways around you, and He’s inviting you to join Him in it.
As you read today, consider this: How will you join God in the work He is already doing in your own life? In the lives of others?
What aspects of Moses’s story resonate with your own life experience? (Consider his family upbringing, those he worked for, those he interacted with, etc.)
What kinds of ambitions or hopes could Moses have had through his life experiences? In what ways does this help you to identify with the story of Moses?

Heavenly Father, thank You for the reminder that You are already at work within me and all around me. My desire is to be fully committed to You and to join You in the work You’ve already started. Open my eyes so that I may see and understand the work You’re doing within me, and continue to provide me opportunities to reveal the wonders of who You are to others. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
