The Moses Principle

The Moses Principle (2283)

There is a spiritual battle for the minds of our children. They are being systematically seduced by the enemy, who wants to destroy our homes. The problem is too pervasive and persuasive to rely on political action. The devil has introduced various substitutes for fixed truth to society. It’s crucial, now more than ever, to instill the truth of the Word of God into the hearts of our children.

Hebrews 11:24-27 says: “By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible.”

There is a personal choice to be made. We are free to choose, but not free to not choose, nor are we free to choose the consequences of our choices. We have the opportunity to choose “The Moses Principle.”

First, there must be a wise evaluation. The devil bombards us with worldly pleasures to distract us from the treasures of a clean heart, true love and a godly family. If we take time to evaluate this, our true values will be determined.

After a properly wise evaluation, there must be a clear choice. Once our values are determined, the choice becomes clear. It will not be easy; the devil will tempt you egregiously to change your mind. Moses was faced with position, possessions and pleasures of all sorts. But he considered the profit and loss of every decision he made; he figured and judged, and made up his mind.

Finally, there must be a determined refusal. In Hebrews 11, we see that Moses refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. Symbolically, this meant he refused all the pleasures of Egypt.

Adrian Rogers says, “No one will refuse pornography until he first chooses righteousness. And no one will choose righteousness until he makes a proper evaluation and sees what really counts.”

Apply it to your life
Have you made a wise evaluation, a clear choice and a determined refusal toward the pleasures of this world? You can only protect your family if you first guard your heart.
