Great Adventures

Yahweh said to Aaron, 'Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.' He went, and met him on God's mountain, and kissed him. Moses told Aaron all Yahweh's words with which he had sent him, and all the signs with which he had instructed him. Exodus 4:27'28 WEB.

The Lord spoke to Aaron and told him to go meet his brother Moses in the wilderness. We do not really know what Aaron was doing when the Lord began talking to him. I am sure that he had plans for the afternoon as we all do. Aaron may have been at home or out gathering straw to make bricks. After all, he was a slave in Egypt.

Aaron had not seen his brother Moses in a long time. Though Moses had been raised by Pharaoh's daughter in Egypt, he had to leave after killing an Egyptian slave driver who was beating a Hebrew. After that, Moses lived in exile while Aaron and their sister Miriam had remained in Egypt. Forty years passed.

Then the day came when the Lord told Aaron to go meet his little brother, and when he did, a life-changing adventure began for all of them. Aaron could not have known what was coming. He would become an essential part of changing the known world and witness miracle after miracle. It all started by hearing the voice. Jesus said, 'My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me' (John 10:27). We know that God spoke to Moses, but we often forget that He also talked with Aaron.

Every journey starts with a first step. God prompts you to do something, a door opens, and you go through it. When you are obedient, another door opens, and you take another step. The adventure will not begin until you take step one, and you will not see stage two until you have completed the first one. So if you feel God prompting you to do something, take the first step towards making it happen. If Aaron had not, he would have missed the most incredible adventure of his life.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for all that You have done for me. Thank You for bringing me this far. Please give me a clear vision of what You have for me, and show me where my time is best spent. Help me focus on the right things and lead me into adventures for You. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
