1) God stopped going in the midst with the Israelites, after they had made an engraved image of another God.
2) God favored Moses.
3) God is driving out many nations, in the land of Canaan (the land of milk and honey) for the the children of Israel to live in.
4) Moses did not eat bread, nor drank water for 40 days. God sustained him. What an awesome God!
33:11 God spoke face to face to Moses as a man speaketh unto a friend. Moses couldn’t see Gods face for no man could see Gods face & live. Moses makes his requests. He put Moses n a rock n a clift so he could only view God from his back. He protected Moses. & he answered his requests. He’s an amazing God. Vs. 19. God said he would be gracious to who he wanted & he would have mercy to who he wanted.
God found favor in Moses. God allowed Moses to see his back. God will be gracious to whom he wanted and would have mercy on whom he wanted. No man can see God’s face and live. God replaced the first set of tablets with a second set. God is slow to anger. God is a jealous God.
There’s not enough words to describe God!!
I continued my study during lunch via Leviticus 26-27. My takeaway: God will not be ignored. His tone in Chapter 26 is very different than in any of the other chapters where He was laying our the statutes and moral codes for his people. In 26, I literally could feel anger from the text at His people who would have the audacity to choose to ignore/disobey His Will and render our free will to someone/something else. None of us in this dispensation of time follow His Will perfectly, but “Man!” are we blessed to be living now versus then. Having said that, He did warn us that He is God and He changes not (Malachi 3:6)…which means the level of His wrath at us for disobedience remains the same. So, maybe we would be wise to occasionally revisit Leviticus 26:14-39 as a part of our realignment process, and remain very cautious of our life choices and how we choose to spend our free will.
