Memory Verse: Talk no more so
exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy
come out of your mouth: for the
LORD is a God of knowledge, and by
him actions are weighed. 1 Samuel 2:3
Read:1 Samuel 2:2-3
2 There is none holy as the Lord: for
there is none beside thee: neither is
there any rock like our God.
3 Talk no more so exceeding proudly;
let not arrogancy come out of your
mouth: for the Lord is a God of
knowledge, and by him actions are
“Moreover he said, I am the God of
thy father, the God of Abraham, the
God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
And Moses hid his face; for he was
afraid to look upon God.”
Exodus 3:6
In the scripture quoted above, God
introduced Himself to Moses as the
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This
is one of His titles and you can be
sure that none of His names or titles
is just for fun. The first thing to note
about God here is that God is not a
talkative. He speaks once in a while
but in Exodus 3, He introduced
Himself three times. Somebody once
said if God speaks two times, it is
grace, when He speaks three times, it
is amazing grace. While God was
introducing Himself to the vessel he
would use, the children of Israel were
going through the worst suffering,
slavery and denial in Egypt even
though they prayed. This shows that if
you have been praying but have not
seen the answer coming, do not be
discouraged because He is preparing
an answer for you.
Who is this God of Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob? He is a saviour and he
sees. He is not blind like some gods.
Psalm 94:9 asks: Will the one who
formed the eyes not see? He does not
only see but He also reacts to what he
sees. He saw the Israelites crying to
Him in distress and He got them a
saviour. Long before the manifestation
of danger, God would have seen it and
taken steps to prevent it from harming
you. He sees and knows all you do
and as a result, there is no hiding
place from Him. Psalm 139:7-12 says
you cannot hide from God. You may
hide certain things from your leaders
but not from God. A pastor of a
certain Gospel church took interest in
a member of the choir and took her
to a far away location to avoid prying
eyes. When they got to the hotel, they
carefully looked around to be sure
there was nobody who knows either of
them. They were about to fulfil their
carnal desires when suddenly the
sister had a conviction and said, ‘We
forgot to look up. I think He is looking
at us’. With that realisation, they
called it quits. There is no secret
before God. There is no hiding place.
Whatever is hidden will one day be
made public. Keep away from sin,
particularly secret sins. He sees you.
Ask for God’s peace to reign in every
crisis zone of the world.
