Reuel to Jethro-2
Exodus 2:18 “And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How [is it that] ye are come so soon to day?”
Exodus 3:1 “Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, [even] to Horeb.”
Friend, as a believer, you must also separate yourself from Midian if you want to enjoy the peace of God.
The Hebrew word translated Midian simply means “strife”. As a believer if there is something you must run away from it is strife.
Strife means; A clash or disagreement, often violent, between two opposing groups or even individuals who are friends. It also means; An incompatibility, as of two things that cannot be simultaneously fulfilled.
The spirit of strife is such that can scatter a home, community, company or even church. If it creeps in unchecked, it can cause damages of irreparable proportion. This demonic spirit is one you should never allow around you. It can separate the best of friends and cause disunity in a church. No wonder Paul warns:
James 3:16 “For where envying and strife [is], there [is] confusion and every evil work.”
Beloved, anywhere there is strife, there is trouble and the devil always have a field day around such places. As a believer you must develop your spiritual antennas to pick up this terrible spirit from far and nip it at the bud. Abraham understood this, so he kept strife or the Midianite spirit away from him.
After understanding this background, I started wondering why God would choose to take Moses to the priest of Midian. Moses spent forty solid years with this priest who eventually became his spiritual father.
He was one man who could tell Moses to sit down and shut up. He was one man who scolded Moses and always call him to order.
