Exodus 18 verse 5: “Moses’ father-in-law Jethro, along with Moses’ wife and sons, came to him in the wilderness where he camped at the mountain of God”.
Exodus chapter 18: Jethro, Moses father-in-law comes to visit Moses. So you might say we have the relatives over all the time.
Jethro, had brought back Moses’ wife, Zipporah and his children. Moses had sent his wife and children to be with his father-in-law, at some point in the Egyptian struggles.
Why at this time did Jethro come back? Jethro who was also the priest of Midian, because he heard everything God had done for Moses, and his people.
Jethro had heard the story how God had bought them out of slavery. He had heard the story of redemption. He heard the story of the wonderful and victorious power of The Lord. Moses told Jethro all the Lord had done to Pharaoh and Pharaoh’s people to make Pharaoh, let them go. Moses told his father-in-law about all the hardships and troubles that had come on them along the way, but the Lord had delivered them.
A wonderful story, to get into, and if we take a moment to reflect. When our family and in-laws hear what, Our Lord, Our Redeemer and Our Friend, has done and is doing for us, are they wanting to come around.
Moses life and calling, was a testimony to His God, and people wanted to hear. Our lives and our callings, should also be a testimony for what Our Lord, Our Redeemer and our Friend is doing in our lives.
Moses testimony, had Jethro say. ‘“Blessed be The Lord, Who has delivered you’
Shouldn’t our testimony, have friends, and others saying, blessed be Your God, because we can see wonderful transformation in your life, and we want to know Him too.
