Yahweh, Day 31
Day 31 Yahweh ... Proclaiming ... The Name ... #1
... Humanity Falling Further ...
In a sudden and inconceivable act of rage Moses shatters the tablets that had been prepared by Yahweh at the first ... Think about this for a moment. Does one hear a sound of ... Regret … on the part of Yahweh?
Exodus 34:1 (HCSB)
The Lord said to Moses, "Cut two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke."
... and recalling the dread event itself ...
Exodus 32:19 (HCSB)
"Moses became enraged and threw the tablets out of his hands, smashing them at the base of the mountain."
The work by the hand ... of Yahweh ... unfathomably precious ... SHATTERED. Could you not grieve with me for just one moment here? Yahweh's personally crafted jewel ... graven on each side with a holy laser of love and redemptive purpose ... shattered... by both sin ... and now the wrath ... of man.
Then, Yahweh says to the man, "Now... you carve the stone..."
Now we understand a little fuller the meaning of James 1:20, "... Man's anger does not accomplish God's righteousness." (HCSB)
Intercessory Prayer: Oh God! We have sinned! And then in our arrogance we thrash about in our fits of indignation … when we should be flat on our faces in solemn repentance. Oh God! Forgive … for Your Names sake. In Jesus Name. Amen.
