Really Good News

Re: Verse reading–Exodus 3:7-15, 4:1-17 (day five) Exodus 4:11- The Lord said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes him mute or deaf, or seeing or blind? Is it not I, the Lord? 12 Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.”

Scripture always holds two things together (God’s act of creation and His sovereign providence). Some theologians believe in “Deism”. It’s a theological view separates them. In other words, they believe that God created the universe and everything in it. Then, He withdraws like an absentee landlord to allow the world to run its own course.

You can’t read the Bible very long without coming to a very different conclusion: Jesus’ answer to the disciples in John 9:3, Romans 8:28, and God’s response to Moses. God reassures Moses of His power, provision, and presence. (all-together and at the same time) He is not distant or removed from any circumstance or issue we encounter. He makes the same promises to us today, and that is really good news.
