It is too easy to dismiss the humanity of those, the history of whose lives are given for our example. Sometimes our idea of when we are ready to do things doesn’t line up with God’s.
Moses tried to deliver Israel from Egypt when he was about 40 years old, young, strong, trained in the top military and diplomatic tactics of the day: he miserably failed: he gave up and lived 40 years in Midian with this guy Jethro. Jethro was a Kenite and a Readmore..
We tend to tacitly think that it was Abraham who (out of nowhere, surrounded entirely by idol worshiping pagans who did not know the One God) just suddenly got this revelation about Who is really God and committed to him alone.

There is much publishing of the atrocities committed by Muslims, and their carnal, wicked behavior.
I believe there are also people who consider themselves to be Muslim because that is all they have known, who earnestly do want to obey the One and only person who is the One God of Abraham. They do not understand that Islam was created not by the God of Abraham but by one who desires the total destruction of all that the One God of Abraham created.
God seeks honest hearts and reveals his Truth to those who honestly will listen. Those Muslims who seek and meet the One God of Abraham will understand he is not Allah (el-Ah, the violent moon god of Ur from whom Abraham departed) but that the One God of Abraham made a human body and lived inside it to save, not destroy, everything he has created. And that presence of God in the human body was known as Jeshua the Messiah, that is Jesus the Christ.
Once they understand the One God of Abraham is the divine Spirit that lived in the body we know as Jesus Christ, and follow him, then they will finally find peace. In the world we have tribulations, but we can take courage because He has overcome the world.
