And [Moses] looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he smote the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand . . . But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian. Exodus 2.12, 15.

What did all this mean? Moses knew only his wisdom and power; he had yet to recognize his foolishness and weakness. God wanted to show him that in relying on himself there were things which he could not do. He sincerely wished to help God in saving the children of Israel, but God had no need of any human help. People who try to help Him with their fleshly wisdom and power will never receive His approval. Many are rejected by Him not because they lack in wisdom and power, but because they are too wise and powerful. Hence God cannot use them. He has to set them aside and let them cool down. He will wait until their natural fire is extinguished before He will use them.
