I like the words from Exodus 2:23, "Now it happened in the process of time that the king of Egypt died. Then the children of Israel groaned because of the bondage, and they cried out; and their cry came up to God because of the bondage. So God heard their groaning..." Well, the rest is history.

 

As the people of Israel prayed and cried out to God, then the Lord made a grand appearance to Moses on the back side of the desert. As far as we know this was Moses's first encounter with God. It was here God initially revealed His holiness to Moses. As Moses became a great leader of God's people, he had to constantly remember that the God he served was holy.

 

As God spoke to him, Moses removed his shoes as a mark of respect and also as a symbol of laying aside all pollutions from walking in sin and the world. We can also walk in righteousness and purity as we wait upon the Lord to "speed up the process of time" concerning our desires.

 

Moses had to wait until Pharoah and others who had sought his life died. "Go, return to Egypt: for all the men are dead who sought your life" (Exodus 4:19) As my husband says, "Waiting on God is never wasted time!"

Are you activating the Word of God in your prayers? "For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall my word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:10,11).

 

The Word of God is so alive and powerful it has the ability to return to the Father with fullness. This verse says it will not return void (empty or ineffectual).


How does the Word return to the Father in heaven? We can send it back to the throne in our prayers and positive confessions. In our meditations and ponderings over scripture, we are activating the presence of God over situations, places, and things.

 

Joshua 1:8, "This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success."

Psalm 103 KJV

1Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.

2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

4Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

5Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

7He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

8The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

9He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.

14For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

15As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

16For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

17But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

18To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

19The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

20Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

21Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.

22Bless the LORD, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the LORD, O my soul.
