May 12th, 1962 “Confidence In God” Late Mr. N. Daniel
confidence Moses had in God was extraordinary. The circumstances through which
this lonely devotee had to pass were strange. There was no man to cheer or
encourage him. He came from the wilderness at the call of God as Jesus came
from a period in the wilderness to commence His ministry. In that solitary life
which Moses led in the wilderness, he learnt many things from God and unlearnt
many things. He studied in the colleges of
I am amazed at how Moses grew in the Lord as a solitary man. One who spends his solitary life well will find that such a time is most profitable. We must develop our solitary (individual) prayer. As Moses was alone with God, God's presence and the visitation of angels must have greatly helped him. Just look at the boldness of Moses. He is speaking so confidently to Pharaoh, the great dictator. Are you sure God has called you? If He has called you, it is an awesome thing. You have to obey absolutely. It is a 'dreadful' thing to be called by God because the great demands of the call are almost beyond your reach. We should be very humble and watchful. How very watchful we must be! How much we can pray while walking! How much we can pray while going in a bus! How deeply you can go into meditation!
Was it easy
to believe and give the command, 'Stand still' when the armies of
God has not rewarded us according to our sins. We must eliminate everything in our life that is not of God. The spirit wants to serve the Lord but the body demands of you its share and drives you to enjoy life in its own way, hindering your spirit. But when the spirit controls the body, God will be glorified in you. At first there will be a struggle between the flesh and the spirit but one day the spirit will reign. When the body dominates, nothing great will come out of it.
When we study the life of Moses, we learn that we can tap the
unlimited resources of God and live in the fulness of
life. 'Stand still', he said in the face of great danger. All the Israelites united
with Moses in sacrificing the lamb. What deliverance they saw! And God talked
to them in an audible voice. Let us wait on God to see this kind of deliverance.
Very soon the Israelites saw the dead bodies of their ferocious and powerful
foes floating on the water. Shall we look to our Saviour
for the power He has released into this world by His death and resurrection?
You will win. You will conquer. The forces that are coming upon you to crush
you are dead forces. You will see them disappearing and you will see the victory !!!
