Exodus 2:11-15

Jeremiah 1:4-5

As we begin part 3 of this message we find Moses is a grown man. After being placed in a basket in set in the river by his sister at his mother’s command, Moses has now grown up and is living in Pharaoh’s house. He, as his name is translated was drawn or pulled out of the water by Pharaoh’s daughter.

Our story today begins with what seems to be the worst thing that could happen to Moses. Moses has killed a man! The bibles says that Moses saw one of the Egyptians beating one of the Hebrew slaves, and when he saw that there was no one looking he slew the Egyptians. As we read on into the story we see that even though Moses thought no one was looking someone saw everything that happens.

Let’s be transparent today Saints of God. Have you ever been doing something that you thought was on the sly or the down low and thought nobody knew and come to find out that everyone knew your business?

The Psalmist remembered something that I think the saints have forgotten.

[Psalms 139:11-12 KJV] If I say, surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. [12] Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

Dr. Mathew Henry said, regarding this verse of scripture-

If God is omnipresent, he must needs be omniscient; but he is omnipresent; this supports the infinite and vastness of his being, from which follows the ubiquity of his presence; heaven and earth include the whole creation, and the Creator fills both (Jer_23:24); he not only knows both, and governs both, but he fills both.

Every part of the creation is under God’s intuition and influence. David here acknowledges this also with application and sees himself thus open before God. (David understood that)

1. No flight can remove us out of God’s presence: “Whither shall I go from thy Spirit, from thy presence, that is, from thy spiritual presence, from thyself, who art a Spirit?” God is a Spirit, and therefore it is folly to think that because we cannot see him he cannot see us:

Never allow the enemy to make you think that because you can’t see God that God doesn’t see what is going on with you!

So in the story of Moses God saw and knew what Moses was going to do even before it happen. God knew that Moses was going to kill the Egyptian an as a result he would have to flee the palace. Now remember, Moses may have been able to flee from Pharaoh, but as Mathew Henry said, he could not flee from God.

Moses killed the Egyptian out of anger! Dr Webster defines Anger as- a strong feeling of displeasure and usually of antagonism and an intense emotional state induced by displeasure

Even though it was wrong for Moses to kill anyone, it was the anger of the situation that revealed Moses’ anointing and assignment. Moses was angry at the way the Egyptian was treating the Hebrew slave. So angry that Moses literally lost it!

Every one of us in this room has an anointing and an assignment that God has placed in your life. And believe it or not, your anger will be the key to reveal what it is to you. I’m your pastor, I may know and see your giftings, but it will be your anger to reveal you assignment. What is it that you hate to see happen. What is that thing that you have prayed and ask God why this or that had to happen or be a certain way.
