Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may perform these signs of mine among them 2 that you may tell your children and grandchildren how I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and how I performed my signs among them, and that you may know that I am the Lord.”
This remains an abiding lesson of the Exodus – both for the church and the world.
It is such an epic story that it has been turned into a block-busting film (and more than once).
But in particular, God wants His own people to know that He is the Lord – the great, eternal God.
He wants us to know about Him…
…to know what He did, what He is doing, and what He can do.
Even more, He wants us to know Him. This is not a call to theoretical information but to a personal, intimate relationship (The same word used of Adam ‘knowing’ Eve is also used of God’s people knowing Him – and I believe Eve was more than a ‘concept’ to her husband!)
In a world where there are so many uncertainties, God wants us to be sure of Him.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to hear and respond your call to be still and know that you are God.
