#5436 – Supernatural Grace

Good morning people who step into the fullness of Father’s divine commission to you.

Exodus 34:28 NIV Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant—the Ten Commandments.

When Father commissions you to do something, there is a supernatural grace that goes beyond natural capability.

Forty days and forty nights, up a mountain, all alone, without eating or drinking. This pretty much sums up the word impossible to me! It doesn’t sound pleasant at all.

And yet this was a defining moment in Israel’s history.

Did you hear my words?

This wasn’t just a defining moment in Moses’ life, although it absolutely was. But it also had a huge impact on the children of Israel, and it still impacts us today.

I’m drawn to another observation in the Spirit right now too.

Sometimes we measure the value of something by how much we accomplish in a given time. If someone spent 40 days, uninterrupted with the Lord in prayer and fasting, and the result was the birth of a new book or the blueprint for the next 10 years of ministry, we might think it was possibly worth it.

However, Moses comes down the mountain with only ten short statements written on stone. These Ten Commandments can be read in one minute, and yet it took 40 days to receive them.

Here’s my point: Don’t measure the worth of something by the size of it or by the length of time it took to receive it.

Measure simply by intimacy with God and obedience to His every whisper.
