It’s been a week of moving and shifting gears to ride out the last leg of the race as we make it across the sea and fast track to Mount Sinai.
Life mimics many, many stories from the Bible, but Moses’ story should be the most resemblant in the respect that we each find ourselves in need of a Savior to lead us out of captivity for the first time, second time and so on until Egypt is forgotten.
As Emery tells the last part of the Exodus story, she leaves out main points on purpose. See, the story took 40 years to finish, not just the few days between crossing the Dead Sea and reaching Mount Sinai.
Too often it is assumed that the Israelites￼ were rebellious and defiant, but that’s just not so. Only a small number of people caused problems. Sounds much like today, yes? The majority were ‘followers’ that did not know any better. God knew this and dealt with each of them accordingly.
Did the Hebrews want to return back? Well of course they did, but, in all honesty, could they? Even Pharaoh forever banished them by God’s design. They had no other choice but to fully depend on God. Each one had to reach levels of humility in ways unheard of today.
In the video, Em mentions Moses having to go back to God and ask for forgiveness for the bad behavior of the Israelites. This ‘act’ has not changed. Repentance is very much apart of Moses’ story as it is Jesus’.
See, back then, only Moses talked to God. Jesus had not imparted the Holy Spirit yet, Moses was ‘it’. There was no one else who could talk directly to God to ask for forgiveness . It’s only my opinion when I say ‘”we’ take Jesus and the Holy Spirit for granted way too often”.
Today, challenge yourself to include God in ALL conversations. Be mindful of Jesus and the Holy Spirit’s relationship to/in/of/as and with God.
Until next time…..warmest regards and blessings upon you- W
