About-

Great are the works of the Lord; They are studied by all who delight in them" (Psalm 111:2, NASB).

When treating the life of Moses the psalmist wrote: "The Lord remembered His promise given to his servant Abraham, and brought His people out of Egypt with rejoicing, His chosen ones with shouts of joy. He also gave them the lands of the nations, that they might take possession of the fruit of other people's labor ..." (Psalm 105:42-44)

The story of the Exodus is an intriguing one. Moses first attempted to help his people without God's call, expecting success as a result of his own ability. In the end he never undertook anything without God's guidance, and it is no wonder that He is linked with Samuel as an example of the power of intercessory prayer (Jeremiah 15:1).

As to Moses' character, the only strong personal trait which we are able to glean from the biblical text comes from Numbers 12:3, where the word "meek" should be rendered "much enduring, or strength under control," for he persevered through extremely difficult, trying circumstances. It is no wonder, therefore, that after performing the task the Lord had given him, he became known as a man of enduring faith (cf. Hebrews 11:24-29).
