Exodus 20:20 – Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid; for God has come only to test you and to put the fear of him upon you so that you do not sin.”
The Israelites had palpable experiences with God, and yet they became frustrated, angry and impatient with God. One of the most hopeful themes of the Bible for me is how God remains faithful to us despite our efforts to push God away.
Patient God, thank you for bearing with us even when we are struggling to be grateful for all you do for us. Amen.
