Moses was God's man for challenging times. In spite of fierce persecution and immense frustration, Moses was able, by the grace of God, to lead the people of Israel from utter despondency to the borders of the Promised Land. Though thousands of years later, our day is ripe with challenges to the gospel. We can therefore learn from Moses' life. We can learn what it means to walk closely with God day by day; we can learn what it means to find our all-sufficiency in the God of the Bible as we live through sometimes dreary and troublesome times. Further, it is the Christian's great comfort that the Redeemer of Israel is the same today as he was in the days and life of Moses.
The life of Moses presents us with difficulties and challenges much like those we are facing today. We live in times in which the dark storm clouds of opposition and hatred are increasingly gathering over the people of God. The stage is being set for anti-Christ. The times are so dark and troubling that many Christians find themselves disheartened and discouraged. As we study his life, we shall find comfort in knowing that our God is as sufficient for us as he was for Moses. Three men tower above all the others in the Old Testament: Abraham, Moses and David. Of these three Moses may be regarded as the greatest. As Israel's deliverer, leader and law-giver, he moulded a multitude of slaves into a nation. These are well known historical details, but why should anyone who is not interested in history. concern himself with the life of Moses? Here are some answers.
