A Different Job Awaits (Exodus 2; Luke 5)

“The woman conceived and bore a son, and when she saw that he was a fine child, she hid him three months,”  Exodus 2:2

“And Jesus said to Simon, do not be afraid; from now own you will be catching men,”  Luke 5:10

Could it be possible that you are not going to finish your life in the way you thought you would?  Most likely you and I both do not know when and how we will finish out our days on the earth.  However, we take great heart in knowing that God does know and He has a plan set for those that will honor Him.

Consider both the Parents of Moses (Exodus 2) and the Disciples (Luke 5).  Moses parents had no clue that God would give them a child that would lead Israel from bondage.  All they knew was that their God loved them and they were walking in faithfulness. God’s plans were fulfilled because of their obedience.  The Disciples were not even following Jesus when He met them, but now they were following Him.  On this day (Luke 5) they would receive this great call to be full-time disciples.  Little did they know that a different job awaited them.

Maybe you find yourself in a place where you really do not know what is ahead.  Take heart, God has better in store for you than you mind can handle.  Moses would lead 2 million people and the Disciples would lead the first church.  All they knew was that God had a plan and they were to walk in obedience to that plan.

Here were Peters last words before his death, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”  II Peter 3:18.  This is my prayer for you this day.
