The Lord Be With You Today!
But if they do not believe these two signs or listen to you,
(The Lord provided Moses with signs that would confirm Moses’ mission
as well as the power of God Who sent him on this mission,
the first being the staff turned into a serpent to show the power of God.
The second sign of Moses’ hand turning leprous and then healed
was a warning to show the people the plight of their slavery,
the danger of remaining in their situation,
and the healing that God offered them in their deliverance from their slavery.
The Lord is so eager to communicate to the Israelites and to us today
that He still provides signs for all of us to see
that He wants to set us free from the places of bondage in our lives,
that He wants us to yield to His salvation and deliverance
from all the aspects of Egypt that plague and oppress us.
He knows that we, like Israel of old and her Egyptian overlords,
are stubborn, resistant, and blind, so He patiently gives us repeated signs
as ways that He communicates with us.
As we attune ourselves to Him, He shows us signs that reveal His power
and also signs that reveal both His warnings to us,
as well as His healing provision.
Just as Moses’ leprous hand was restored,
the Lord miraculously takes our shattered and broken lives
and makes them whole again by His decree.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
