“At a lodging-place on the way, Adonai (the LORD) met Moshe (Moses) and would have killed him, had not Tzipporah taken a flintstone and cut off the foreskin of her son. She threw it at his feet, saying, What a bloody bridegroom you are for me!”
Exodus 4:24-25 CJB
These verses seems to be out of place in this narrative, Moses being called by God to lead the children of Israel out of bondage. Until, we realize, that God is calling Moses out, saying if you’re going to represent Me, your house needs to be in order! This goes for us also!
“And He spoke a parable to them: Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch?”
Luke 6:39 NKJB
The point of these verses is simple. God calls us to lead people to Him, the promised land! Problem is, if we are acting just like the world around us, we become like the blind leading the blind. We need to circumcise our hearts, sever the worldliness from our lives, so we can lead!
“Today you have proclaimed the LORD to be your God, and that you will walk in His ways and keep His statutes, His commandments, and His judgments, and that you will obey His voice.”
Deuteronomy 26:17 NKJB
Today, let’s walk in the ways of the LORD, not the ways of the world, so we can lead people to Him!
May your day be richly blessed as you walk with the LORD!
