Then the Lord told Moses, "Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones. I will write on them the same words that were on the tablets you smashed.
This scripture is referring to the stone tablets that the 10 Commandments were written on. Moses worked tirelessly writing and chiseling the words on to these granite tablets only to go down the mountain and find that the Israelites had grown tired of waiting for him and decided to create their own God to worship there by melting down all their gold and creating a golden calf.
Moses was outraged that after all the Lord had done for them and all the miraculous events that surrounded them and they would still turn to worship a false God.
In his anger at this audacious realization, Moses hurled the stone tablets smashing them to the ground.
But in reading the scripture above and reading the passages before and after.. What stood out to me is that the Lord asked him to chisel out two more tablets but then he said "I" Yes GOD would write the same words that were on the tablets that Moses had smashed.
GOD WOULD RESTORE WHAT WAS BROKEN .. Even though it was broken in anger God still expedited the restoration, he did not make Moses labor and rewrite all of the Commandments himself. God stepped in and he wrote it. God took pity on Moses and all the hard work that he had put into this project. There was such mercy and kindness in God's restoration process.
The restoring would come quickly as I could imagine that God would supernaturally write
These commandments so swiftly and effortlessly.
I can imagine Moses was watching in complete awe and relief.
I look at how God overlooked the humanity of Moses and forgave him for his anger..
God understands us, he knows we are human he knows our flaws and our weaknesses and he is so quick to forgive us all of our iniquities, but what I love is that God goes one step further and he personally restores us...hallelujah we serve such a good God!
I am reminded of the scripture in Ephesians 3:20
God will do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or think..
God's restoration of the tablets for Moses was his exceeding abundance of kindness mercy and love towards him.
It was God's great understanding at how Moses must've felt. He knew Mose's heart, he knew Moses was a man of God and he also knew and understood why Moses would be so angry... God understands ALL that we go through.
I imagine Moses was walking back up that mountain shamefully mortified; not only at what had taken place with the Israelites ..but now he was to face God on the issues of how he had acted in such anger. I'm also quite positive, he was not looking forward to the grueling carving of recreating the Commandments.
God so graciously knew what he was thinking he knew he was tired angry and weary.
The Scripture says do not grow weary in well doing...
God will always restore! He will always give us his exceeding abundance he will give us beauty for ashes.. we serve a good God he sees all of the injustices.. he knows what's happened to you and he knows why. We serve a just God and he settles and solves the cases of his people.
I ask you to restore to the overflow all that the enemy has tried to steal from your people today I thank you for your love, mercy, forgiveness, kindness and abundant restoration. All glory be yours in all things.. you are a good good Father!! in Jesus name
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
