Case Study: Moses

Sudha Khristmukti

devozine, MosesMoses never thought he was capable of being a leader, but God asked him to lead Israel out of slavery in Egypt. Defying slave drivers, delivering God’s people from the clutches of Pharaoh, and escaping into the wilderness wasn’t a fun-filled expedition. Finding food, water, and shelter was a constant problem. The people complained and refused to cooperate. Though God provided for them, they longed for Egypt. Moses could have deserted them, but he relied on God’s strength to carry him through. He never lost faith in God’s goodness, and he never gave up.

What can we learn from Moses about perseverance? To you, which Bible character demonstrates best what it means to “keep on keeping on”?
