It's Only Begun!
Deut. 3:24 - “O Lord God, you have only begun to show your servant your greatness and your mighty hand.”
120 years is a long time! Moses spent his first 40 years as a prince of Egypt. The next 40 years were spent shepherding livestock in the land of Midian. The last 40 years he led God’s people around the wilderness. During his life Moses had witnessed a burning bush, heard God’s voice, witnessed the 10 plagues, crossed the Red Sea, been fed by mana and quail, spent 40 days on Mt. Sinai with God and had quenched his thirst from water that came from rocks. He had witnessed the earth swallow rebellious families, had seen his sister become instantly leperous and then recover in seven days, and had also watched numerous people be cured of their snake bites simply by looking at a bronze serpent lifted high on a stick.
Moses had experienced some incredible miracles performed by God during his life! What is truly amazing is that in his twilight days, he made the statement, “you have only begun to show your servant your greatness and your mighty hand.” Moses’ understanding of God was so great that he knew what he had seen during his life was just a hint of what God was capable of. As we grow in our relationship with God may we be impressed with the fact that we have only just begun to see what our God is able to do!
