THE LIVING WATER {Jan ~ June, 2020}
Thursday, March 26, 2020
Read Exodus 2:16-21
[16]Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock.[17]And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.[18]And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon to day?[19]And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.[20]And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.[21]And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses Zipporah his daughter.

MEMORISE: Then the shepherds came and drove them away; but Moses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock (Exodus 2:17)
Moses had just become a fugitive after he fled for his life, out of fear of the backlash of the crime he committed in Egypt (Exod. 2:12-14). Meanwhile, in his wanderings, God was preparing him for an immediate and ultimate assignment. The seven girls of Ruel, a Midian priest, would always come home late due to shepherds who always short-changed them at the well, being men! But on a particular day, help came in the name of Moses. He was God-sent as he disallowed the shepherds from their usual unfair treatment to the girls. Moses’ timely help was so obvious that their father was surprised to see them return home earlier than usual. That is what happens to a man or woman who receives God’s help (Psa. 46:1). This will surely be your portion.

There are situations that makes you helpless, but you are not hopeless! The girls were constantly overpowered by the mafia-herdsmen, who always chased them away, whenever they wanted to fetch water! However, their help came one day, and they were freed. Your help is on the way, if you walk in the way God expects you. When your help comes, things that have been so worrisome before, become fun for you to do. Things you have been doing with hardship and burden become easy and effortless, when divine help locates you (Psa. 121:2).
This is not an automatic thing for every Dick and Harry! Right location, persistence in doing the right things, at all times, are two germane keys to receive help. So, don’t fold your arms! Do it with all your heart. Don’t quit, even when situation suggests so. Only keep on keeping on in the Lord Jesus. Help will not tarry again. It is locating you, even right now. Stay helped as you help someone to get this message. Shalom!
1. O Lord, send to me this day, a timely help to overcome all my present and prospective challenges, in Jesus’ name.
2. God, make me a source of help to others who are in dire need of help, in Jesus’ name.
3. O God, help leaders everywhere, to be compassionate about the led, in Jesus’ name.
EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Deuteronomy 21 – 22 & John 19
