Modern Day Moses

"So it was, whenever Moses went out to the tabernacle, that all the people rose, and each man stood at his tent door and watched Moses until he had gone into the tabernacle."
And it came to pass, when Moses entered the tabernacle, that the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses,"
Exodus 12:1-2 (NKJV)

Sometimes we see someone who we believe has an unfair advantage over us, and we wish that we had what we see they have.  Sometimes, people do have something unique to them that we cannot have, but many other times, what someone else has is actually available to us, and it is just that we do not have that specific thing.  Very often, we can find a way to have those things the other person has, if we are willing to make the effort, and sometimes by making a change in our life.

Until Jesus came, no one could be born again and have a close, personal relationship with God.  Today everyone can have a relationship with God, and a better relationship than anyone in the Old Testament ever had.  In Exodus 12, we see how Moses had a special relationship with God.  Moses would go to meet with God, but all that the other people could do was just watch.  Today we are all a modern-day Moses, so to speak.  We can all talk to God whenever we want, and the Spirit of God even lives in us!

We don't have to wish we had a deep relationship with God like someone else has, because we do have that type of relationship with God, we may just need to develop it more than we have.  Today, we don't need to have someone go to God on our behalf or go to someone else to get what God wants us to have, we can go to our loving Heavenly Father ourselves, because of our relationship with Him through Jesus.  We have direct access to God, and even better than Moses had!
