We have been studying a man by the name of Moses in a series we are calling, “Red Sea Moments.” This great man of God was facing a Red Sea moment when he came to his own level of stress. He is leading two million of his people through wilderness and desert and they are burning up at times at the way he is doing it, and he is burning out trying. In the 18th chapter of Exodus, Moses had a moment and a meeting that didn’t just change his life, but it literally saved his life and helped him complete his tasks. It is not only very practical, but it is very spiritual. If you feel overworked and overwhelmed, now’s the time to admit it, because you will never be the father, the mother, the husband, the wife, the employee, or even the Christian that you should be as long as you stay there. Moses took three simple steps that kept him from burning out that you can take as well.
We are beginning a study on the life of Moses that we are calling, “Red Sea Moments.” What you are going to see in this series is that in so many ways the life of Moses is your life and my life. Moses is no longer on this earth, but the God of Moses is. The story of Moses is not just what God did for him; it is what God wants to do for you. It is not just about what God did in him, but what He wants to do in you. It is not just about what God did through him; it is what God wants to do through you. The story of Moses is not just “a” story, and it is not just “his” story. God wants it to be your story, too.
