We all know the whole point of Moses was he gave up everything but himself. He didnít even know that he hadnít given himself up, nor did he know that he needed to give himself up. Thatís the point! Itís our blindness thatís our trouble. Just the same as in our unredeemed condition; our blindness is the trouble. We donít know that we are going to hell. We donít see ourselves as sinners. And the Holy Ghost has to take the veil from our eyes. Then we know it and can find the remedy.
Now the law of the Spiritual life is that we never have a greater need than to have a sense of our need. According to our need, so is our supply. According to our hunger and thirst, so are we filled. Thus only insofar as we see our need can we receive the supply. And so we know how Moses royally, gloriously, daringly flung everything in this world away except himself, to follow Jesus. Hebrews 11:26. He didnít know that he needed to fling himself away; didnít even realize that he was relying on himself. Thus he had to go through those forty years of disillusionment.
