Ears to Hear




The chapter for today, posted on a friend's blog, was Exodus 6. I don't know how many times I've read this passage of scripture about Moses and the Children of Israel, but I know it's been a few. This time a verse jumped out at me that I had never really thought significant before. It is verse 9:

"So Moses told the people of Israel what the Lord had said, but they refused to listen any more. They had become too discouraged by the brutaility of their slavery." (NLT)

Moses had come to tell them that the Lord was going to free them from oppression and slavery - that He was going to rescue them. It was what they had been praying for their entire lives, but they were too discouraged to listen. They had listened to Moses once before and the brutality had only gotten worse. Now they were having none of it. They would just continue as they were - slaves to brutal masters.

Those words took my breath away. . . .

This devotional is posted at Laced With Grace today. Please join me there.

Blessings,

The Father's love poured out in a Baby's cry, brings us into the Promised Land.

Your post is beautiful. We are so like the children of Israel, when we are in the midst of the crisis, many times we fail to see our Father's love poured out for us.

It is true we cry out for help but we don't hear Him. We would hear him if we would just take time to get to know him daily.

Wow, I know I have read it before but I know what you mean when a scripture stands out ... I know I have been that way - too beat down to listen but then eventually God somehow grabs my attention - and I am not always happy as to how that happens either but in the end, I am so glad he loves me enough to keep on prodding me in the right direction.... No more slavery for me... I am free in the Lord! Hallelujah!

When you live 'In the World' you are a slave to a brutal master. That's why we have to live 'Not of the World'. I hope I will have on my listening ears (as we say to preschoolers) when the Father is trying to tell me something.

Thanks for sharing that verse. This is the kind of thing that happens when we take our eyes off of God.

Many sweet blessings!
