August 23, 2023

When Moses was helping God deliver Israel out of Egypt, his wife and two sons stayed with Jethro, his father-in-law. Things had calmed down, so Jethro brought them to be with Moses. Moses told him all that God had done, and they rejoiced together. Jethro was not an Israelite, but he was the priest of Midian from the lineage of Abraham, and he appreciated everything God had done for Israel. Jethro still plays a part in current society because of his layout of the legal system. He helped Moses break down his duties as a judge and divide it out to relieve some of the pressure from him by giving responsibilities to others who were also capable of judging the issues of the people fairly. 

Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens: Exodus 18:21

Before God gave Moses the law, He used Jethro’s wisdom to begin laying out the design and format for how the law would work. 

God is so good! He works out the details in advance, orders our steps, has a plan, and when he speaks to us and shows us the way, we are ready to receive it because he has prepared us. Don’t neglect to recognize the minor details you learn as you traverse the pathway of life. God’s plan is very detailed, and little things work to impact the greater good of your life.
