A Personal Note

“By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden for three months by his parents…
By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter…
By faith he left Egypt…
By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood…
By faith they passed through the Red Sea…”

Hebrews 11:23-29

Moses’ life began as a journey of faith - his parents’ faith when they chose to trust God for the protection of their baby boy. His life continued as a life of faith as God led him step by step to carry out the purpose He had for Moses. No, Moses wasn’t perfect, but that didn’t prevent God from using him. That gives me great hope as I see my shortcomings in my own journey of faith.

Each day is divided into four sections. “Looking to God’s Word” is designed to get you into the Scripture to do observation and interpretation. “Looking Upward” will direct you with questions that are more application-oriented. “Looking Deeper” is optional. It is for those who want to go further in their study of the lesson. It will direct you to other related passages to deepen your personal study. This section is not required, and the questions in “Looking Deeper” will not be discussed in your small group time unless your group decides to include them. If you have time, however, to go deeper, this section can enhance your personal study time. It is not always located in the same order each day because there are times it is better suited for the end of the lesson. “Looking Reflectively” is designed for application and reflection on the lesson. Each day I have given a “nugget” on which you can meditate throughout the day. Sometimes you will be asked to evaluate something in your life. Other times you will be asked to pray about something or to journal your thoughts about an issue. This area of the study is designed to take the head knowledge and make it heart knowledge.

My prayer as you study the life of Moses is that you would grow deeper in your own journey of faith, that you would be encouraged as you see God use an imperfect, ordinary person, and that you would be willing to let God work in and through you to carry out His purpose(s) for you.
