Thoughts from the Diary of a Desperate Man by Walter A Henrichsen (“Walt”)
“And the Lord repented of the evil which He thought to do to His people.” Exodus 32:14
God gave Moses an opportunity to get out of a nasty job. While receiving the Law on Mount Sinai, Aaron led the people in sinning against God by making a golden calf. God told Moses that He would destroy the Hebrews, and start over making a new nation out of Moses’ descendents. God made him a great offer and an opportunity to exit.
Moses rejected God’s offer, giving two reasons: First, he said, “Why should the Egyptians say, ‘With evil intent did he bring them forth, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth’?”343 If God destroyed Israel, His reputation would be damaged. Nations such as Egypt would conclude that God does “evil.” Second, Moses said, “Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou didst swear by thine own self.”344 God made an unconditional promise to the Patriarchs; He cannot go back on what He promised. “And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do to his people.”
When you intercede before God, remember that He will always respond in accordance with what is best for Himself. Moses understood this, reminding God that His reputation and His promise precluded His doing what He said. As you approach the Throne of Grace, don’t think in terms of what you want, but what best serves the interests of God. Your best will always flow from this.
