Hebrews 11:27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. ~ Just as each of us, Moses had to come to a point in his life where he had to make a decision. He had to choose whether he wanted to stay as an Egyptian or come into his true birthright.
Egypt represents the world and its systems. It represents the lifestyles and everything that pertains to the world. Moses had to choose to either stay in Egypt and become the Prince of Egypt and partake of all the pleasures and things made available to him in Pharaoh’s house or he could choose to suffer affliction with the people of God. We know that he chose to follow God. The Bible says that he endured, he was strong, steadfast, patient, and transposed by keeping his eyes on him who is invisible. Transposed means to change position or order, to change in form or nature, to transfer from one place to another. Through the process of enduring, Moses went from Prince of Egypt, to Prince of God. His nature, life, and thought process changed from one that was influenced by the world to one that was touched by God. Moses kept his eyes fixed on God regardless of what was going on around him. And because of that, he saw God and beheld him. He was one chosen by God to bring forth God’s people out of Egypt. He was one that God used to change the course of a nation and all of mankind for all of eternity. He was the greatest of all the prophets. He wrote the first 5 books of the Bible and is still being talked about today thousands of years later…. All because he made a choice. He made a choice to follow God and live according to His ways.
We must decide today if we want to partake of the pleasures of sin for a moment or if we want to live in a higher place of living, living for eternity. This is not without hardships, battles, and other challenges but it is also not without reward, contentment, and satisfaction. He endured by keeping his eyes, his focus on God and so can we. Don’t allow distractions and momentary pleasures keep you from your true birthright and identity.
