Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
Exodus 3:1 (KJV)
He had once been the grandson of a Pharaoh. He had once been a member of the ruling elite of Egypt. He had once been important and respected.
40 years of exile later, the wanted posters had faded to blank in the desert sun. Only the keeper of the cold case files in Egypt might have known of Moses’ name and death-warrant. No one sought after the forgotten fugitive on the backside of the desert.
It isn’t hard to guess that Moses felt forgotten and alone in the depths of the Midian desert. An exile? Definitely. Forgotten? Not by God. Alone? Not for a second.
There among the sheep, Moses had time to spend with God. Far from the bright lights of Egypt, Moses had the time and opportunity to deepen his relationship with Jehovah-Jireh. Exiled, does not mean alone.
Where ever you are, you are not alone. God is there with you. No matter what happened before.
He longs to develop a deep, rich relationship with you. He calls to you through the silence. What do you say?
Think: No matter where I am, God is there and wants to spend time with me.
Pray: “Father-God, I want to have a deep and rich relationship with You.”
