For many years, humans have been enthusiastic about beauty, truth, love, honor, altruism, courage, public relationships, art, and God. They all go together as subjective experiences, and it’s really a straw man to set God up as the delusion. If he could be, then so is truth itself or beauty itself.
You may have said it. I have said it, but I try not to anymore say it. I have learned that there surely is a reason some individuals appear oblivious to the needs and problems that are so apparent to us sometimes. For the reason that God allows those to start to see the need whom He is increasing up to meet up with the need. So my idea is not, “Look for a need another person can meet,” but rather, “See a need, meet a need.” How do I know I am the person to meet that require?
One factor is that God has given you an awareness of the need. That recognition is proof His getting in touch with and purpose so that you can meet the need. Israel needed a deliverer frantically. Many of them didn’t even realize it yet. Most of them, we will find out later, didn’t even want it.

But Moses was in a distinctive position. Having been rooted in the Hebrew culture, and having access with the halls of Egyptian power, he could see a deliverer was needed. But Moses didn’t say, “You understand someone ought to do something positive about this.” Moses saw the necessity and understood that he was God’s appointed agent to meet that need.
Moses went out to observe the conditions of his fellow Israelites, and he observed one of them being abused by an Egyptian severely. Being convinced that he was God’s appointed deliverer, he set about to God’s will, but he did not do it God’s way. He killed the Egyptian and quickly buried him in a shallow sandy grave.
He must have felt a feeling of satisfaction and achievement about this, day because the next, when he discovered two Hebrews fighting with one another, he assumed they would welcome his interference. They didn’t. In fact, they said, “Who made you a prince or judge over us? Are you intending to destroy me as the Egyptian was wiped out by you? ” The secret out was, and rather than causing the Israelites to turn to him as God’s appointed deliverer, he was seen by them as a vigilante street-fighter and wished nothing to do with him.
His attempt to God’s work in his own way rather than God’s way disqualified him as a leader in the eyes of his people and interposed a hold off in the accomplishing of God’s will. We must question if Moses thought he could deliver the Israelites by knocking off the Egyptians one by one. Not merely would that take permanently, it was out of step with God’s better purposes.
Though God’s purposes might have been delayed by Moses’ impetuosity, it had not been derailed. Pharoah wanted to take the life of Moses, but God would not have that. He got Moses out of Egypt, so that he might get Egypt out of Moses. He led Moses to the wilderness of Midian, where Moses could learn a different way of leading than by brute force.
Moses’ intuition were right, but his methods were wrong. By the right time he got to Midian, God had been shaping him into a vessel fit for use. He saw injustice taking place Again. Some roughneck shepherds were driving some defenseless women and their flocks away from the well, and Moses intervened again.
But this time he achieved it with a different spirit. He didn’t strike them down, he simply “stood up” to them. That’s what Moses would have to do in Egypt. If there is to be any striking down, God could handle that without Moses’ help. Moses’ job would be to stand up to Pharaoh and allow the Lord battle for him and for his people. Next, Moses “helped them and watered their flock.” Later, he would spend 40 years shepherding God’s people through these same desert sands, helping them and watering them such as a flock of sheep as a shepherd-servant.
