Pivotal Moments – Greg Laurie

“By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin” (Hebrews 11:24-25 NKJV).

Hebrews 11, what we call the Heroes Hall of Faith, tells us about the faith of great men and women of God who made a huge difference because of the stand they took. This includes Moses, who, through his godliness and personal integrity, effectively kept two-and-a-half million people from turning to full-tilt idolatry.
What a difference his life made.

Moses made important decisions at the beginning of his life. Here’s what Hebrews 11 says about him: “By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward” (verses 24-26 NKJV).

Moses ended up in Pharaoh’s palace because Pharaoh had given the decree that all the Hebrew baby boys should be put to death. But Moses’s mother saved his life by putting him into a little basket and placing it in the Nile River. As though on cue, baby Moses let out a cry, and Pharaoh’s daughter found Moses, took him into her home, and raised him as her own son.

Moses effectively was the prince of Egypt, and potentially he could have been the next pharaoh. But Moses made a principled stand in his life.

We all come to forks in the road that will lead to another fork in the road and then to another. These pivotal moments in our lives can make all the difference as to how we end up.
Know this: The evening of your life is determined by the morning of your life. The end of your life is determined by the beginning. How important it is to make the right decisions.
