Faith is the antidote for fear. Endowing you with heroic courage, divine wisdom and unstoppable obedience. Moses examplified this kind of faith.
An eternal perspective nourishes fearless faith.
By faith, Moses when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He preferred to endure the hardship of the people of God rather than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin. He considered the reproach of the Christ. That is the rebuke he would suffer for his faithful obedience to God to be greater wealth than all the treasures of Egypt. For he looked ahead to the reward promised by God. By faith he left Egypt, being unafraid of the wrath of the king. For he endured steadfastly as seeing Him who is unseen. Hebrews 11:23-26
Why was Moses able to discern Papa’s wisdom but Pharaoh wasn’t? Moses decided there’s more to life than this world’s superficial, transient and hedonistic desires and rewards which have nothing in common with Papa’s heart. Like Moses and Pharaoh, all have a choice. Worship the God of eternity or live as enemies of the cross of Christ, rejecting and opposing His way of salvation.
Whose fate is destruction. Whose god is their belly— their worldly appetite, their sensuality, their vanity. Whose glory is in their shame. Who focus their mind on earthly and temporal things.
But we are different because our citizenship is in heaven. From there we eagerly await the coming of the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Who, by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself, will not only transform but completely refashion our earthly bodies. So that they will be like His glorious resurrected body. Philippians 3:18-21
Righteousness nourishes fearless faith.
By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood on the doorposts. So that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch them the firstborn of Israel.
By faith the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea as though they were passing through dry land. But when the Egyptians attempted it they were drowned.
Despite nine months of experiencing Papa’s judgment of the Egyptians worship of false gods, neither the Egyptian king or his subjects would submit to Papa’s Lordship. Unwilling to acknowledge He alone has the authority to judge everything that opposes His righteousness— code of conduct.
Instead, they insisted on relying upon the wisdom of man. Refusing to ask themselves, “Where were our gods when the water of the Nile River turned into blood? Frogs invaded the countryside? Lice infected people and animals from head to toe? Swarms of flies blanketed the land? Disease killed our livestock? Boils and sores concealed the flesh of both humans and animals? Hail destroyed crops? Swarming locusts? Three days of total darkness? The firstborn, both human and animal, all dying in a single night? Yet, in the Hebraic settlement of Goshen, not a single plague report?”
The Egyptians, like many since, refused to submit to Papa and His righteousness. Thus, making it impossible to receive the spiritual revelation that there is only one God, the LORD of the Hebrew slaves.
Beloved, when your faith in Papa’s trustworthiness is unconditional, the shackles of worldly desires and attitudes are broken. Safety, security and comfort no longer dominate your decision making process. Focus, passion, courage and perseverance permeate your life.
Courageously tackle whatever Papa commands, even if it seems impossible or unfamiliar.
There’s nothing to fear. Papa promises to hold your hand.
Hebrews 11:24-29 (Moses Scriptures)
