Exodus 3-5; Luke 22

I only know what I know about any given situation and my reactions are about ME.


What if I reacted in knowing that YOU know everything…..what if I reacted in the knowing that I AM protected…..I wonder IF I would react differently??


So Moses has witnessed the burning bush and spoke to the Great I AM…he has seen and felt his staff turn to a snake and back…he has experienced his own hand turning leprous and being healed and he still says….Exodus 4:13 "O Lord, please send someone else to do it."..I’m not criticizing Moses just marveling at the God of the universe and what a stubborn people he has to work with then and now.

Luke 22: 46 "Why are you sleeping?" he asked them. "Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation."
Pray so that you will not fall into temptation. What if I prayed instead of thinking so much…..

I relate to Moses so much in those verses, and I think, "God how do you put up with me?"

Some good points in that post. How different things would look if I would stop thinking so much and start praying more. I too wonder how in the world does God continue to put up with me, in such a mess that I am. But the fact that He does makes me stand in awe. I found your blog through another one and am glad I did! Thanks!
