God walked alongside Moses, growing him for a special purpose. At the beginning of his story, Moses was saved that God may carry out His plans for Moses as well as use Moses to carry out His plans for Israel….. which I guess was God’s plans for Moses. O.o
In the beginning of the story, the main character was a feeble man who seemed full of excuses. He was reluctant to accept the plans God had for him. He claimed to be slow of speech and lacking in eloquence. Before even that, he asked questions that were seemingly impossible to answer for anyone but God. And though God did answer them, Moses eventually asked God to send someone else.
The Lord was displeased, and His righteous anger burned against Moses, yet He continued to pursue him. The harder Moses ran, the harder God pursued him. He assigned a helper in Aaron, who would be Moses’ voice to the Egyptians and the Israelites.
Moses and Aaron were a tag team with God coaching them from outside the ring. God passed the message to Moses, who passed it to Aaron, who in turn passed it to the masses.
Moses felt he had no authority to speak to Pharaoh. At the beginning of their interactions, Aaron performed the miracles and spoke. As time passed on, it was noted specifically that Moses went into Pharaoh’s to speak. Aaron was sometimes not even mentioned in the verbal duels.
For the last battle, Moses proclaimed the final plague that was set upon Egypt. After delivering the message, Moses left Pharaoh’s presence, “hot with anger.”
God provided Moses with help and education, and with every message and every mission, Moses learned to be the leader God wanted and needed him to be for Israel. With every message and every mission, his boldness and courage grew to the point where he did no have to hide behind Aaron any longer.
