If you have a dog, you will know too well how they act when you leave, and when you come home. When I leave the house to go somewhere, my dog Rudy will cry, and it breaks my heart. When I come home, he is overwhelmed with so much joy, that he smiles; it’s the funniest thing! Sometimes, if I go outside without him, he thinks I’ve been gone forever, and greets me the same way.
It would have been great if the Israelites had been that way when Moses left to meet the Lord on the mountain to receive the commandments. They felt abandoned, and were so used to their old ways in Egypt, that they longed for an idol to worship. Their only way to hear from the Lord was through Moses, and he wasn’t there. Even after God showed them all the signs, parted the Red Sea, fed them daily, they still didn’t trust in him.
Hasn’t God shown you enough throughout your life for you to have faith that he is still there and has you covered? Do not forget that he always comes through for you. Have faith that he will do it again, even if your situation looks ominous. Stand strong and resist the temptations of the enemy.
"When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, “Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”" Exodus 32:1
