“Begin the journey of faith. It is the adventure of a lifetime! It is a journey with
mountaintops and valleys, with joys and challenges, but it is an adventure where
you will never be alone. You will find that God is faithful. And though the journey
may be filled with challenges, God will help you grow in faith and promise
through God’s eternal power and purpose. Allow faith in God to transform you
as you follow in the footsteps of Moses from bondage to promise.
Moses did not shrink back from fear facing Pharaoh or the demands of
leadership. As he faced each new challenge, he grew in faith and leadership.
We, too, can grow in faith and life as we face challenges and commit to a life
following God’s purpose and promise.
Moses followed the fire. Moses was called from the fire of the burning bush.
The pillar of fire led Moses and the Hebrew children through the wilderness.
The fiery trials of the desert worked to forge stronger faith and character in the
Israelites that would one day help them take the Promised Land.
Come spend 40 days in the footsteps of one of the greatest leaders of all times.
Learn the lessons of life and leadership God taught Moses. Draw close to the
fire. Hear the still small voice of God tugging you to new vistas of faith and new
challenges of life and service.
As you journey with Moses, allow the Master Craftsman to form and fashion
you. God will purify and refine you through fire; then strengthen you for service in
the heat of the fiery kiln. You will find chains are broken, seas are parted, water is
provided in the desert, and battles are won--because God is faithful. Trust God.
Life is an adventure. Grab your staff and follow the fire!” (excerpt page 19-20)
