Exodus 24: 16-18 – The glory of the Lord settled on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days; on the seventh day, he called Moses out of the cloud. Now the appearance of the glory of the LORD was like a devouring fire on the top of the mountain in the sight of the people of Israel. Moses entered the cloud, and went up to the mountain. Moses was on the mountain for forty days and forty nights.
When I think of fog, I think of dimness and uncertainty. We want our choices to be crystal clear, but they rarely are. To approach God and receive the law and commandments, Moses first had to walk into a fog, where his vision would be limited and his path uncertain. We are also asked by God to step into the unknown on trust – to take a leap of faith.
Mighty and wonderful God, strengthen our faith so that we may boldly go where you lead. Amen.
