Timeless truths about age!
Few people have been used by God as powerfully as Moses. But consider this fact: God could only use Moses when he was 80 years old. For the first forty years of his life Moses was trained in the palace by royalty. The second forty years of his life Moses was trained in the desert by obscurity. The third forty years he served God incredibly.
Moses tried to answer the call of God to deliver the people of Israel when he was 40. He killed an Egyptian taskmaster and ran for his life from Pharaoh. He thought his fellow countryman would understand that he was the deliverer. But he failed miserably. Do you know that in the prime of his life Moses utterly failed?! He spent the most productive years of his life tending animals on the back side of the desert! Not a great resume for someone who wants to be greatly used by God.
Moses’ life teaches us that it is never too late to be greatly used by God. Even if you have failed miserably. Even if you have plundered the “best” years of your life! The beginning of the greatest journey in faith began in the final quarter of Moses’s life. God may be burning a bush for you just about the time you are hitting retirement!!
