_"And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. Isaiah 42: 16.*_

To do God's will, Moses had to leave his comfort zone. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh?s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward. (Hebrews 11: 24 - 26).

_*To Fulfill The Assignment God Gave Him, Moses Had To Be Willing To Give Up Two Things:*_

*1. Comfort:* Ease is a greater threat to your progress than hardship. After living in a palace, Moses spent his next forty years in the desert tending sheep. He married one of Jethro's daughters, managed her father's business, and enjoyed a comfortable life style. Can you imagine leaving all that to go back and face Pharaoh God's plan for your life will bless and reward you. But never assume it?ll be easy.

*2. Security:* When God called him, Moses had many doubts and questions: Who am I that I should go? (Exodus 3: 11). What shall I say to them?? (Exodus 3: 13). Suppose they will not believe me?? (Exodus 4: 1). But I am slow of speech? (Exodus 4: 10). Finally he told God, Send someone else (Exodus 4: 13). Have you been doing that?

Fortunately, God wouldn't take no for an answer and Moses finally did the one thing that works when you?re uncertain about the future: He obeyed God, trusting the details of the future to Him. In doing that Moses agreed to answer God's call, leave his comfort zone, and return to Egypt. As a result the Children of Israel were delivered from slavery and Moses name became a household word.

  When you choose to leave your comfort zone, God is glorified and you leave a landmark on the land of the living.

3. Lord Jesus, give me the grace to leave my comfort zone in the name of Jesus

4. Grant me the grace for self-control like Moses in the name of Jesus.
