Exodus 3:13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? What shall I say unto them? [KJV]
This question that Moses poised to God was a sad reality in the lives of the people that Jehovah was about to send him; a people who have lost thier true identity,a people full of despair, neither knowing thier history nor having a desire to know it. This added to thier misery and hopelessness. If only they know they would not indeed have reacted like Moses knew they would, asking about a so-called god and his name, for thier God was the only true God who was omnipotent, omniscience and omnipresent, it was because of these powerful attribute that this God was sending Moses on a mission to have them delivered so that they would come to know him and serve Him. Many today, goes to church, have a big bible, sing gleefully in the church, but do not know the God they serve. When temptation comes, they run back to the world to fetish and to thier former ways. thier coming to church seems like a modern thing to do, a king of social gathering what with the scintillating music and the atmosphere with men and women dressed up to thier nines. It is a disservice for anyone to go to church and not learn something new about a wonderful and omnipresent God of love and forgiveness. It is a shame if we do not know his will concerning our lives nor what the Lord has rout for us when he went to the cross.Let us read from the Bible, Exodus 16:4 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove to them whether they will walk in my law, not. I always take my text from the king James. Here in this text, God almighty, the ever bearing God, the great provider came once more to the rescue of the children of Israel who always find it difficult to know the ways of this God or his immense power. They were prisoners of thier limited knowledge of who Jehovah is to them. The various gods Egypt had developed thier concept of God in the land they were slaves. As Christians, our hope and faith is built on Jesus, our lord and saviour; he is our strong foundation. See 1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. He can protect, provide, promote and prosper us. T grow a healthy faith that will remain unshakable during temptation. It behooves the believer to seek a church of the” WORD”, not the so-called miracle church. There, you can grow your faith from day to day. It is your faith in God that gives you victory on a daily basis. We are called as Christians to live by faith daily. See Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. I have deliberately taken from the old and the new testament so that you may know the importance of faith in God. As you come to know this God you will stop jumping from pillar to post. When you are troubled, you will become still and know that He is God indeed.
