He is known for his bold demands; in obedience, he carried God’s message to Pharaoh.
“Afterward Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the LORD God of Israel: ‘Let My people go, that they may hold a feast to Me in the wilderness. And Pharaoh said, ‘Who is the LORD, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I do not know the LORD, nor will I let Israel go (Exodus 5:1-2 NKJV).”
Moses knew and revered the LORD that Pharaoh had mocked. Before he met Pharaoh in Egypt, he met with God at a burning bush.
“So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, ‘Moses, Moses!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’ Then He said, ‘Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.’ Moreover He said, ‘I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God (Exodus 3:4-6 NKJV).”
In the New Testament, Stephen (before being martyred) told of Moses encounter with God.
“And Moses trembled and dared not look (Acts 7:32b NKJV).”
We worship Holy God.
Compelled through Moses example, we will approach the LORD reverently.
