verse 27: “For I know how rebellious and stiffnecked you are. If you have been rebellious against the Lord while I am still alive and with you, how much more will you rebel after I die!
These words are so true to human nature. What does it take to get obedience from us? Release from slavery? Pillars of fire? Parting seas? Food falling from the sky? If God were human, he would have been struggling with whether to just give up. But he didn’t. He made sure we have “proof” of His sovereignty. We are so fortunate to be living in these times. We have God’s Word in Jesus, and his written Word to lead us when we falter or question.
Father God, you have infinite patience with your people. I love you and thank you for that. I can trust you to be here with me always and forever, because you have promised. Amen
