Exodus 3:6 Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
Ever since the Garden, man has been afraid and hiding. I wonder if the first thing that entered Moses’ mind was, “Oh no, God is here to kill me for killing the Egyptian so many years ago.” I know the first thing that would have gone through my mind would be something similar. I would immediately go to fear that all the mistakes I have made were now coming back to haunt me and it would be time to face the consequences.
But that’s what my flesh would say. That’s what the lies I’ve believed would say. When I am not in constant connection with the Father, I begin to doubt His love for me. I focus on what I’ve done wrong not who He created me to be. It’s a daily battle and I’m sure that I am not alone in this. We all have a daily battle against the lies that cause us to fear and hide from God. What’s your battle today?
God loves you so much! If you could just grasp that truth, If I could just grasp that truth, I believe with all my heart that we would change the world. His love is that powerful and complete! “Perfect love drives out fear” 1 John 4:18. Imagine for a moment living without that fear that has been at times your daily companion. What would that look like? What would that feel like?
Is it possible? I don’t know. But I will keep replacing the lies one at a time with the truth of who God is and His marvelous love for us and I’ll let you know when it happens!
