One mistake can change the course of our lives. One bad decision can cost us years. In Moses’ case, the mistake was murder. In a fit of anger, he killed an Egyptian and then fled for his life. He went from living as a prince of Egypt to growing old with the sheep in the desert. He was certain that it was too late for anything good to come of his life.
Many of our lives have been forever changed by a single decision, and the consequences have left us feeling as though our existence has little significance. But it wasn’t too late for Moses, and it’s not too late for you. Just because you have done bad things in the past does not mean that God will not forgive you. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, we just need to ask. Don’t let your past rob you of your future.
When he was 80 – after 40 years of waiting – Moses’ mistake brought him to the right place to meet with God, who used him to lead an entire nation out of slavery. Cry out to God, and He will meet you in His presence.
