So…tonight I am officially 6 days behind on my year long Bible reading plan. Right now my kids are in bed and I have the house to myself and I get ready to read 6 days worth of Bible reading. In case you are wondering that equals 19 chapters of Exodus. I know, lofty dreams I have. I’m reading along when BAM! Exodus 2:25 hits me between the eyes, “God saw the people of Israel–and God knew.” Those three little words tucked in so safe and tiny, “and God knew.” I stopped dead in my tracks.
Let me back track to what my night was like earlier. I was on a texting marathon with about 4 people going back and forth about a family in crisis and about new babies and new homes and how consuming life is. I’m overwhelmed by the love of God’s family for each other. Exodus 2:25, “…and God knew.” He knows. He knows. I want to expound but I can’t. I pulled out the handy Key Word Study Bible but none of the words come close to, “and God knew.” I just can’t get over it.
He knew. Soak in that tonight and tomorrow and the next day.
