Name means: “to draw out”
AKA: Prince of Egypt, Deliverer of Israel
Startling facts: Moses had a temper. He killed an Egyptian foreman who was beating a Hebrew slave, he smashed the first set of stone tablets on which God had written the Ten Commandments, and whacked a rock with a stick instead of just speaking to it as God had asked. It was this final act that caused God to refuse Moses entry into the Promised Land. Yet in spite of his faults, Deuteronomy 34:10 tells us that there was never another prophet in Israel like Moses, “whom the Lord knew face to face.”
Did you know? After Moses died, God Himself buried Moses in an undisclosed location. Check out Deuteronomy 34:4–6.
Coolest trait: Moses had 80 years of education and preparation for his life’s mission: Born as a Hebrew slave, adopted into the Egyptian royal family as a prince, and then at 40 years old he started his next 40 years exiled as a lowly shepherd. God put a lot into the making of the man who would eventually lead an enslaved people out of Egypt on a journey lasting 40 more years.
You can too: Believe that what you are facing right now may be what God is using to prepare you for your future.
