“Moses agreed to stay with the man, who gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage.”
-Having a deep desire for social justice; Moses saved an oppressed Jew from the hands of his Egyptian master. His intentions were good but his actions; ill advised. He became a vagabond in Egypt leaving his majestic life & ran to Midian where he sat by a well probably calling on Gods’ mercy. Through the same desire for social justice; he was able to fight for the seven daughters of Reuel the priest of Midian when the shepherd’s hindered them from accessing water. Just like Isaac’s wife who was found by the well, Moses conveniently found Zipporah by the well, a place of spiritual inclination. Zipporah the daughter of a priest complemented Moses’ priestly purpose in marriage by cultivating godly qualities in her family through deep spiritual truths; which was imperative when leading the Israelites out of Egypt & through the exodus experience. Everything falls in place perfectly according to Gods’ divine purposes even though sometimes we loose hope in waiting for our life partners but God call us to have faith in Him. After his undergraduate lessons in Egypt; Moses graduated & moved to Midian; for a postgraduate course under Reuel/Jethro the priest of God where he learned the laws & precepts of God for forty years (Acts 7:30). We should always remember that God is not slack of ideas, He is working & actively involved in each one of our lives by making sure that His Kingdom purposes come to life in our personal lives, families, societies & nation. Like Moses who went through different experiences in his life; we should also remember that it is not by chance that we are exposed to different situation & environments but God has a purpose for our lives according to His everlasting love as from old; through His Son Jesus Christ our Lord & Savior.
Thank You Lord for Your goodness & mercy upon our lives, we praise Your name forever. Remember, Jesus Your great mercy & love; for they are from of old & grant us Your grace through our walk in You. Your word is true & perfect Lord; teach us Your precepts & guide us through its application. Have mercy Lord on all those who are waiting on You for their spouses; that You may grant them favour according to Your merciful love. Remember also all the school going children; that You give them excellence, wisdom & good health merciful Father. Bless us all Lord & elevate us in our personal lives, relationships, families, businesses, work, gifts, talents, calling, churches, societies, government & nation at large; for Your grace is sufficient for us all & Your mercies endures forever. Amen
