The Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and proclaimed the name, “The Lord”. The Lord passed before him, and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,” Exodus 34:5-6
In my devotional time this morning, I could sense God nudging me to re-read this Bible verse as He knows me so well and knows exactly what I need to hear and see for myself for it to penetrate deep within. I am not sure about you, but I am always reflective on Resurrection Sunday and what it truly means; not what the secular world portrays. I often think about the anguish experienced by Jesus a couple of days before He had to endure the most painful and selfless sacrifice for those who would reject Him and not appreciate what He had to walk through for us.
When I thought about this, all I could hear in my mind is something that Jesus said in John 5: 19(NRV) “… the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does”. Knowing that Jesus walked this earth in physical form to display God’s love for us in everyday, tangible and supernatural ways made me even more grateful to know the God the Father that Jesus spoke of and “the Lord, the Lord” that came to meet and assist Moses.
To attempt to describe all that God is and what He truly represents is not possible, because there are not words, but there is a deep internal worship that consistently oozes from me when I cannot muster up even how to fully describe Him. As He renewed His covenant with the Israelites in the days of Moses, so He did with us by providing us with a divine intercessor- Jesus who died to save us all.
Let us not forget what this day represents. Thank you Jesus for dying for our sins so that we can be set free externally, but most importantly from within.
