"If you have not chosen the Kingdom of God first, it will in the end make no difference what you have chosen instead. For you have missed the purpose for which you were formed, and you will have forsaken the only thing that satisfies." —William Law
God (merciful as He is) was unwilling to blow Moses out of the water by showing him His glory. But even so, God was willing to show him the effects of His glory. He allowed Moses to see His back, to see the results of His abilities.
God does that same thing today. Because He’s almighty, there are certain things that He, and only He, is able to do. We may not be able to understand how or why He does these things—for His ways and His motives are far beyond our own—but as a consequence of the things that we cannot see, there are certain things that we can see that reveal God’s glory to us.
Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them... —Hebrews 7:25
God is able to save us.
At the core of the gospel is the truth that God is able to find someone who has been lost. He can find them and He can save them. He can do this physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Though we have rebelled and gone our own way, God is able to reverse the consequences of our arrogant, ignorant choices. He is able to save us from the wrath and judgment that we are due because He paid the penalty for those sins Himself when He came to earth as a man and died on the cross in our place.
Yes, He is able… but the choice to reach up and allow Him to do it is yours.
Savior, although I can’t see You, I know You are real because of what You’ve done on this earth. Your mercy is awesome, and I can’t get enough. With empty hands I reach up to receive Your salvation. Thank You for saving my lost soul. Amen.
