Telling people that I'm in law school is an interesting experience. There's this never failing 'oooohhh' effect. It's always amazing to me that the very thing that I honestly didn't think I'd survive is what makes people think I'm so fancy. Apparently, law school is a big deal (lol). People always seem so....impressed, you know? Meanwhile, in my mind, I'm like "chiiiiiiiiil' if you only knew how He carried me here."
So for whatever reason, I'm taking a journey through the book of Exodus...and for the moment, I'm bring y'all with me (lol). I read up on Moses' early days, and his reaction to God's call. I loved it, and honestly thought it was hilarious. Why? Well. To avoid excessively long intros, keep reading, and let's chat about it below....
(35) Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (37) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. (38) And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.(39) No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 8:35, 37-39 (NLT)
One of my favorite (and most forgotten) characteristics of God is the fact that He knows….everything. Like literally, EVERYTHING. He knows what’s going to happen right after you read this post. He knows what I’m doing while you’re reading this post. He knows how whatever is stressing you out right now will look like in 5, 10, 20, etc. years. God…knows. I’m saying it over & over because I want you to really get it. There’s peace when you get it. There’s joy when you get it. So once again, I want you to know….God…already…knows.
