Exodus 6 - 8; Luke 23


Fighting against being a sheep today. Feeling shorn and naked and vulnerable, so what am I going to do? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing expecting different results….
so to stand, be still, BE naked and vulnerable…….look to my shepherd and wait.
Genesis 39: 30 But Moses said to the LORD, "Since I speak with faltering lips, why would Pharaoh listen to me?"
So even Moses, doesn’t get it. It’s not about him or his words, it’s about what God intends, and are we willing to wait and see…to follow…to trust that……am I?
Then the whole of the crucifixion, to die for us, for me, our/my sins. There is no sense in that….just GRACE. To live in the awe of GRACE, without struggling against…or always struggling against wanting what I want and what YOU want is better…….??

Why do we struggle so? I want to melt into His Grace, but I fight and fight.

As soon as God took the 'why' out of Moses' words, as soon as it was just him before God, then the way of God became clear to him.

As you say, "There is no sense in that..." And that is wonderful.
