“By faith Moses, when he had grown up refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter…” (Heb11:24-27)
See it – faith’s opportunity. Moses was a great see – it leader, a great visionary. Four things that helped Moses make difficult decisions
(1) He refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. That was a difficult decision; he was giving up his royal position; he was giving up all the pleasures of Egypt.
(2) The second thing that helped his vision was that he was willing to pay the price. The price was enduring ill treatment with the people of God rather than enjoying the passing pleasures of sin.
(3) Moses’ vision helped him to live for the eternal and not the temporal. Because he had a vision, he did not have to live for today; he could live for tomorrow.
(4) Moses’ vision helped him overcome fear in his life. By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king. A vision will help us pay the price. It provides the motivation for us to give up good things now for better things later.
A vision will also help us rise above fear. It keeps us from becoming immobilized by monsters so that we will be able to move mountains. Caleb’s vision (1) helped him develop conviction (Jos 14:7) (2) helped him obey God (Jos 14:18) (3) it helped him stay young at 85 Caleb was ready to go to war (4) it help him secure the land.
