Moses-Eyewitness to Glory: Discerning God’s Active Presence

Moses was an eyewitness to the glory of God. Despite his sometimes-crippling sense of inadequacy, he was chosen to free the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Moses’ encounters with our Lord enabled him to continue despite his personal sense of unworthiness and the many obstacles and hardships he experienced along the way. “He persevered because he saw Him who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27).

As you see God move on behalf of His people during the Exodus, you will gain a greater revelation of His matchless power and holy character. The same God who was concerned about His people’s suffering in Egypt and used Moses to deliver them from their oppression, is mindful of the matters that weigh heavily upon your heart. God is at work in your circumstances, just as He was at work in the lives of the Israelites. Through this study, you will learn to discern His active presence and find hope and encouragement for your journey. You, too, can be an eyewitness to His glory.

The Moses: Eyewitness to Glory Video Series (for individual or group use viewing), with teaching by Mindy Ferguson, is designed to accompany the lessons taught in the bible study workbook for additional life application. The series includes eleven individual video session
