By Faith

Moses has been on my mind a lot lately. At the burning bush, what must have been going through his mind as God called him to go back to the land he had fled from (because he killed an Egyptian) and save the Israelites from whose slavery he and the only family he had really ever known had benefitted greatly? Oh, to top it off, he was slow of speech (Exodus chapters 3 and 4).

Yet despite weakness and everything that could possibly go against him, he went on to accomplish one of the most marked miracles contained in the Bible: 

24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dryland: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. (Hebrews 11: 24-29)

This med school thing seems very do-able in comparison.
