Numbers 11-13: Why God Chose Moses

Numbers 12:3 says this:

Now the man Moses was very meek, more than all people who were on the face of the earth.

What a title, the meekest man on earth. It’s no wonder that He was chosen to lead the people. Could you imagine a proud, power hungry man leading the people out of Egypt? He would have established himself as king and turned the people away from God permanently. But Moses was humble, he was not interested in power and fame, at least, not his own power and fame. Moses was concerned about God’s power and God’s fame. He led the people of Israel for the glory of God alone.

Imagine if we lived that way, concerned with God’s glory going before anything else. How would that change our families, our jobs, and our friendships? Let us pray that God would make us like Moses give us a spirit of meekness, that we might live in such a way that our lives point away from ourselves and toward God. Let us be as 2 Corinthians 3 says, mirrors beholding the image of God for all to see.

    Unfortunately this thought process is backwards. Numbers is after Moses has been chosen by God and has led the children of Israel out of Egypt. Moses’ meekness and humility was not the reason he was chosen by God. Moses is meek and humble because of his time with God. He has a relationship with God that is far beyond anyone else on earth and that is why he is humble. True humility is a reflection of our understanding of God. When we see God as He is, then humility is the result. Moses is humble because he has spent 40 years on the backside of the desert with God.

      You’re not wrong. In fact, I think you’re right. But in defense of myself from two years ago, I was not making the claim that Moses was humble outside of God’s sovereignty. I simply pointed out that God uses the humble to do amazing things for His glory. God exalts the humble, and who better to exalt than the most humble man on earth?
