I can’t bear the sun drenching my skin for too long, why is he taking so long to get to me? This is the moment I need him to help, but he is getting too late. Yeah! That was how they felt too, I mean the Israelites. They thought they were waiting on a man called, Moses, not knowing it was God.
Doctrines and Letters have taken away the true message God wants to pass, because we focus our attention on the “earrings prohibited thing”, neglecting the heart of God in true reverence for Him.
Making the golden calf was not where the real problem started from, but their inability to wait on God.
Nowadays, we even scam God with our mouth either with one song we don’t mean or with words like, ¶We wait on You. Lord, we wait on You¶ No be your voice you go take deceive God on this matter.
Although, many of us are sometimes guilty of the same position the Israelites found themselves with Aa’-ron. They are in haste to meet God, but they met god.
“And when the people saw that Mo’-ses delayed to come down out of the Mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron and said unto him, up, make us gods, which shall go before us; “For as this Moses”, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him”. – Exodus 32:1 (AKJV)
They can’t wait, therefore, they made a god of gold for themselves. Mind you .. there are gods of woods, bronze, clay, metals, and stones too, don’t waste your time thinking holiness or reverencing God is removing earrings. Check – Acts 17:29.
Your Gold can be anything more precious to you than God, I say.
Itunuoluwa still says, “Any means or way that won’t make you wait for the appointed time of God is your golden calf”.
Trust God when you are waiting, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”. – Habakkuk 2:3 (AKJV)
Thank you Holy Spirit for making us learn at your feet everyday.
