Can you imagine how Moses must have felt?
The first time he tried to help his people he ended up on the backside of the desert.
Talk about discouragement . . .Moses had every reason to be discouraged.
He was going to change the world! He was going to create a better environment for his people! He was going to make a difference! But instead he was rejected by his people. . .exiled from power and lost his position of prominence.
Life as Moses had known it . . .was over.
The first 40 years of his life, Moses had been somebody.
For the next forty years of his life, he was a nobody.
