God’s handwriting could be seen on stone tablets. They could run their fingers over the letters.
“And he gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.” Exodus 31:18
“The LORD said to Moses, “Cut for yourself two tablets of stone like the first, and I will write on the tablets the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.” Exodus 34:1
“And the LORD gave me the two tablets of stone written with the finger of God, and on them were all the words that the LORD had spoken with you on the mountain out of the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly.” Deut. 9:10
I am just sitting here trying to imagine what it must have been like to hold those stone tablets knowing they were engraved by the very hand of God.
Fast-forward from the Exodus; God’s handwriting moved from cold stone tablets to the warm hearts of his people.
“For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” Jeremiah 31:3
“…you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” 2 Corinthians 3:3
What does God’s writing look like on your heart? What evidence is there in your life today that the Spirit of the Living God has written on the tablet of your heart?
***Please be mindful to VOTE TOMMORROW. May He write His laws on the hearts of our leaders. ~ D.S.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chron. 7:14
