than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward. 27By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible.” NKJV

There is more than a hint in those verses as to why Moses made that choice.

He saw something other people were not seeing! He saw beyond the veil of this life into the glories of a higher realm. He saw beyond the temporal to the eternal. He saw a reward that is infinitely more valuable than anything Egypt had to offer. God interrupted his pursuit of worldly success with an offer he could not refuse. It is the unveiling of the eternal that causes a person to live by a different set of values and to pursue a different set of goals than the world.

Have you ever been interrupted in life by an intervention of God? If so you are blessed. It is a demonstration of mercy and grace when God does that. I am forever grateful for those divine interruptions in the course of my life. When I was fourteen years old God came into my life in a special way. He made me aware of my sin. He made me aware of my need for forgiveness. He granted me repentance and brought me into His glorious kingdom. In fact, He placed His hand upon my whole family and turned us all toward Him. When I was twenty-two there came another divine interruption.

There have been a few others since then.

One of the things that intrigues me most about life is the possibility of these divine interruptions.

Life can become so routine and predictable. You get up in the morning—go to work—do your job—come home and do a few chores—get some rest—and go to work the next morning. But just about the time you think nothing will ever change, God interrupts the routine and gives you a fresh assignment.

That new chapter in your life may or may not involve a geographic move. It may or may not mean a job change. It may or may not bring new relationships into your life. All those are possibilities. But when God comes on the scene in that way something marvelous always happens in our lives.

Consider with me this morning:

I. The Sovereignty of Divine Interruptions

II. The Opportunity of Divine Interruptions

III. The Responsibility of Divine Interruptions

I. The Sovereignty of Divine Interruptions
A divine interruption is a good reminder of Who’s in charge. It is something I cannot control or even predict. God does it when He wants to—where He wants to—how He wants to.

There’s always a surprise element in a divine interruption. That surprise element makes life extremely interesting. I’m glad I don’t know everything God has prepared for me. I like the fact that He has some nice surprises already planned out for my days ahead.

Notice in Exodus 3 this divine interruption came quite unexpectedly into Moses’ life. The chapter opens with these words, “Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law…” He was just doing his job, minding his own business, making
