By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Hebrews 11:27

24ec35058be5c5c64b71b141c420be5a“For the honor of God and the deliverance of His downtrodden people, Moses sacrificed the honors of Egypt. Then, in a special sense, God undertook his training…. He had yet to learn the lesson of dependence upon divine power. He had mistaken God’s purpose. It was his hope to deliver Israel by force of arms. For this he risked all, and failed. In defeat and disappointment he became a fugitive and exile in a strange land…. Apparently cut off forever from his life’s mission, he was receiving the discipline essential for its fulfilment…. He must obtain the experience that would make him a faithful, long-suffering shepherd to Israel…. In the stern simplicity of the wilderness … Moses gained that which went with him throughout the years of his toilsome and care-burdened life,—a sense of the personal presence of the Divine One…. When misunderstood and misrepresented, when called to bear reproach and insult, to face danger and death, he was able to endure “as seeing him who is invisible.”
– E, 62, 63
