“The Lord said to Moses, “Come up to Me on the mountain and stay there so that I may give you the stone tablets with the law and commandments I have written for their instruction.” So Moses arose with his assistant Joshua and went up the mountain of God.
The glory of the Lord settled on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days. On the seventh day He called to Moses from the cloud.”
Exodus 24:12-13, 16 HCSB
Father I pray for peace, discernment, and to be obedient. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Imagine this moment—Moses being called by God to climb up Mount Sinai to collect and bring back to the Israelites the Ten Commandments that are to govern their people, without question or modification. Reflect over what they have already gone through as a people, more than 400 years of slavery, a dramatic exodus from Egypt, and uncertainty of what’s to come.
All of this takes great courage and faith. Could you do it?
