He Hears; We Worship

He Hears; We Worship

27 The Lord said to Aaron, “Go into the wilderness to meet Moses.” So he met Moses at the mountain of God and kissed him. 28 Then Moses told Aaron everything the Lord had sent him to say, and also about all the signs he had commanded him to perform.

29 Moses and Aaron brought together all the elders of the Israelites, 30 and Aaron told them everything the Lord had said to Moses. He also performed the signs before the people, 31 and they believed. And when they heard that the Lord was concerned about them and had seen their misery, they bowed down and worshiped. Exodus 4:27-30

Moses finally met up with his brother and told him the game plan. After they relayed the game plan to the elders of Israel, they did something that was actually startling: they worshiped. Why did they worship? Because they now believed the Lord was looking after them. They had been in bondage for so long without any relief that they had grown weary and troubled.

We need to be reminded of this truth often.

God is intimately concerned about us whether we “hear” from Him or not. He has our best interests at heart. When things aren’t going our way, He is not punishing us. He sees all the misery and junk we sometimes have to go through. He has not forgotten us even though it may seem that way.

Our response then is to bow down and worship just like the elders of Israel did.
