Now that God had prepared Moses it was time to prepare Israel. God sent Aaron to the wilderness to meet Moses. It must have been a wonderful reunion. Moses’ recounting God’s plan to Aaron, Aaron learning of his role in Israel’s liberation. The discussions of meeting Pharaoh and what God had in store for Egypt and Israel. The men were now ready to convince Israel…
When they met with the people, it was clear to the Israelites that God did send Moses and Aaron. It was also clear that they had not been forgotten and God was going to keep His promise and release them from bondage. Their response was not to hoot and holler and throw a party, no, instead it was to bow down and worship in respect and reverence to their Lord.
When God intervenes in our lives, we must be ready to trust Him and in reverence worship Him. We also need to recognize that God’s plans for our lives are intricate. They have many moving parts. He never rushes to execute his plans because it is more critical to execute the plan properly than it is to do so quickly. Moses and Israel were about to see How much God loved them; and, as His chosen people, how the Lord would vindicate their pain and suffering.
We must never lose hope or faith in God’s plan or His devotion for us. We cannot get in a hurry to see God act. We must instead walk in a manner that honors God and shows our faith and reverence. After that, it is simply a matter of patiently waiting and watching God execute His plan for our lives in His time and in His way. He will complete His plan for our lives. Jeramiah 29:11. When He does, it will be exceedingly and abundantly better than we could ever imagine. Romans 8:18.
We can never forget, however, that we are in spiritual war. The enemy will do any and everything to get us to abandon our faith and trust in the Lord. It is incumbent on us not to lose faith, but instead to seek God and trust Him even more to do exactly what He needs to make His plan work. If we will, the Lord will straighten our path and bless us beyond our wildest hopes and fantasies.
God Bless You
27 Now the Lord had said to Aaron, “Go out into the wilderness to meet Moses.” So Aaron went and met Moses at the mountain of God, and he embraced him. 28 Moses then told Aaron everything the Lord had commanded him to say. And he told him about the miraculous signs the Lord had commanded him to perform.
29 Then Moses and Aaron returned to Egypt and called all the elders of Israel together. 30 Aaron told them everything the Lord had told Moses, and Moses performed the miraculous signs as they watched. 31 Then the people of Israel were convinced that the Lord had sent Moses and Aaron. When they heard that the Lord was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped.
