Practical secrets of true personal development: How God helped Moses

God is deeply interested in your personal development. The truth is that most of us get bothered and worried about what God has not done for us but His major concern is our personal development.

God can give you all the good things He has promised you but He also wants you to be who He truly wants you to be.

Your personal development is of paramount importance to God than anything you will ever desire from Him.

As from today and in the coming days, we will be looking at what I call the practical secrets for your Christian personal development.

Let’s start with a short story about the life of Moses, that great servant of God who did great things for God. You should note the different stages of development in his life.

“And the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaohs’ daughter, and he became her son. So she called his name Moses…” (Exodus 2:10)

Moses was born at a time the wicked government had issued a decree that all new – born male children of the Israelites should be killed. But he was not killed!

God wanted Moses alive and also wanted him to undergo training in Pharaohs’ palace! So he was not killed.

Moses’ first personal development training was in the King’s palace and God had a hand in it. It would have been impossible for him to escape death through Pharaohs’ instruction and ended up being raised in the same Pharaohs’ palace!

“When Pharaoh heard of this matter, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh and dwelt in the land of Midian…” (Exodus 2:15)

It could only have taken the hand of God and His plans for further development of Moses for him to have left the comfort of the palace and identify with the sufferings of the children of Israel.

Moses ended up moving into the wilderness where his development continued.

“Then Moses was content to live with the man (Jethro), and he gave Zipporah his daughter to Moses” (Exodus 2:21) (emphasis mine)

Moses’ development continued as God allowed him to settle in Jethro’s house who was a priest of Midian and who ended up becoming his father -in -law.

I believe Jethro must have imparted lots of good values into Moses when he was with him.

“So when the Lord saw he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, ‘Moses, Moses!” (Exodus 3:4)

This dramatic encounter with God further helped Moses to develop. He discovered His God – given purpose. I want you to note from this story how Moses tried to reject God’s instructions to him about his purpose.

I believe this encounter would have remained ever fresh in the memories of Moses while he lived and it must have helped his personal development significantly.

Moses’ development continued: Moses’ return visit to Pharaohs’ palace (Exodus 5: 1). Compare this with his effort to reject God’s call earlier.

Moses’ interesting development continued: Moses in front of the Red Sea (Exodus 14: 13 – 14). Compare this with his earlier activities in the bush and in Egypt.

Moses even made a faith statement before he consulted God for what to do with the Red Sea. His readiness to allow Godly development was already paying good dividends.

Moses interceding for Israel (Exodus 32: 21). Compare this to when he killed an Egyptian because of an Israelite.

Did you observe the various stages of development of Moses? Did you also observe the relevance of the God factor in his development? Did you also discover the relevance of purpose discovery in his development?

Personal development is impossible without God! This is the reason for Christian personal development.

I believe that is a strong message for you or anyone who wants to truly have meaningful personal development.
