A Note from Andy

Hey Guys -

I've been reflecting on the notes I took at Strength to Stand. In our last session with Brian Mills, he reminded us of a fact about Moses:

Moses chose God's Way over the ways of the world. He was raised in pharaoh's palace. He could have had it all...the best food, money, power, influence. But he gave it all up.


Because Moses loved God more than the world.

God's people were enslaved and increasingly mistreated in Israel at the time Moses came on the scene. But Moses knew that God had a plan for him, and he yielded to God's plan. Moses could have stayed in the palace, not stood up for the Hebrew man being beaten up by the Egyptian, and not led his brethren out of Egypt. It wasn't an easy path Moses took, but because he loved God so big, he was willing. We should be, too.

No more limits. No more excuses. No more living in pharaoh's palace.

Love you guys!

Andy W.
