"Not Me, Lord! I Can't Talk!"
He had been there ever since he fled for his life after killing a man in Egypt and burying him in the sand.
He could not go back to Egypt, so he married a Midianite girl by whom he had children.
Jethro, his father in law, was a priest of Midian.
God began to talk to Moses, and what He had to say to him was very important. For two chapters we see that God was very patient with him; but in Exodus 4:14 we read, Then the anger of the lord burned against Moses...
Why would God choose a man, begin to talk with him, and spend as much space in the Word trying to persuade him to do His will as is spent in Genesis on the account of creation itself?
Two chapters cover creation, and two chapters cover the time God was trying to convince Moses to go down into Egypt.
There was a reason why God became so angry with Moses, and I would not be surprised if some of us anger the Lord in the same way.
Let us look at what happened, for this is a story we should remember all our lives.
