Easter Devotional: “God Will Make A Way”

Seeing the people’s sin of Idolatry there at Mount Sinai, as God gave Moses the 10 Commandments, the second being not to make an idol, God said that was it. He told Moses, “I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff-necked people! Now therefore, let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them. And I will make of you a great nation.” (Exodus 32:9-10)

But Moses thought more of the people than of himself and interceded on their behalf asking God to remember His covenant relationship with them. And then he said, “Turn from Your fierce wrath, and relent from this harm to Your people.” (Exodus 32:12b)

And in Exodus 32:14 it says, “So the Lord relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people.”

Moses’s intercession saved God’s people from destruction.

This is what we refer to as a foreshadowing of Jesus’s intercession for us. The Bible says, “There is none righteous, no, not one,” and that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” and that “The wages of sin is death.” (Romans 3:10: 3:23; Romans 6:23a)

But after this Paul makes this wonderful, God has made a way, announcement.

“But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23b)

When we consider how often we sin, which is multiple times every day, it is surprising we didn’t perish years ago. And it’s all because of Jesus’s intercession for us. The writer of Hebrews says, “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” (Hebrews 7:25)

Paul gives us this wonderful promise as well. In Romans 8:34, he said, “Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.”

God has made a way.
