Have you ever wondered why there
are so many obstacles in your life? Why couldn't God make life easy
for us, so we could live in peace and just have a good time? Well,
obstacles are God's way of educating every believer in Christ.
Moses was trained for life on earth at the royal court in Egypt and
also under the guidance of Jethro in the wilderness. At the same
time, his personality and character were being prepared for an
eternal position. God knew that Moses was going to encounter a
number of difficult situations and it took eighty years of
preparation to make him ready for all the problems he was going to
Forty years later at the age of 120, Moses' training for eternity
was completed when he finished the job of leading the children of
Israel. The character and integrity he possessed at the end of his
life was the result of all the difficulties he had encountered. The
same holds true for you and me, as we are being groomed for our
eternal destiny while we live on the earth.
