Aaron's Choice

I have been working through the book of Exodus lately and recently found myself reflecting on the role of Aaron, Moses' brother. What an interesting person he must have been. In a time and culture when the eldest son typically took a leadership role in the family after he became of age Aaron chose to step back and yield to the call he saw on the life of his younger brother. According to Exodus 7:7 Aaron is believed to have been three years older than Moses. Another interesting thing is that despite the closeness they likely developed as adults they did not grow up together so did not really have a normal brotherly love. Aaron didn't follow Moses out of brotherly love but out of obedience t

But God

Have you ever had a case of the “yeah buts”? A time when God is stirring something in your spirit to do and you respond “yeah but did you realize.....” or “yeah but God if you only knew how I lack that skill” and on and on they go. The “yeah buts” can be crazy and can cause us to miss something God wants to do in and through our lives. My favorite example of this in Scripture is Moses. He was a big time “yeah but” person!

Slave or Sovereign

In Exodus 2:11-14 we see his two worlds collide. "11 One day, after Moses had grown up, he went out to where his own people were and watched them at their hard labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people. 12 Looking this way and that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand. 13 The next day he went out and saw two Hebrews fighting. He asked the one in the wrong, “Why are you hitting your fellow Hebrew?” 14 The man said, “Who made you ruler and judge over us? Are you thinking of ki

Speak to the Wave

Have you ever been overwhelmed by circumstances in your life? That things you were facing seemed insurmountable and unchangeable? It is easy to become despondent when we look at such circumstances. One of the best tactics in warfare is the use of propaganda. Propaganda is information that is not objective and is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, often by presenting facts selectively to encourage a perception, the goal being to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented. If you can get your enemy focused on their circumstances and get them to identify with your propaganda you can easily defeat them because they beli
