A Somebody With God

Joel C. Gregory writes: “How many times have we had to reach the end of our own resources before we remembered to trust in God, the one steadfast resource of our lives? We’re all in need of a spiritual exodus day by day. When our faith causes difficulties, our first response is to fall back on our familiar resources—people, things, self—and only when these do not help can we truly lean only upon God for our needs. “I like what Dwight l. Moody said about Moses in this connection. Moody, not a very erudite man, had an unusual insight into Scripture. He said that Moses spent forty years in the king’s palace thinking that he was somebody; then he lived forty years in the wilderness finding out that without God he was a nobody; finally he spent forty more years discovering how a nobody with God can be a somebody. “And he was right. When Moses and the people found out they were nobodies without the resource of God, that’s when the exodus began.”
