Walking with God—God will do
It would be fascinating if we experienced God’s capacity in our life. This is not a hope but His common method for beloved children. God articulates himself with a ‘strong hand’ and ‘almighty’ in Exodus 6.
Then, why would God do that? The key clue to the question is that the relationship is based on a covenant. God cut a deal with Abraham, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you, all the families of the earth shall be blessed” (Genesis 12:1-3).
If so, how does this relate to us? The Bible clearly explained the correlation even though it looked unrelated to all people: “And when God counted him as righteous, it wasn’t just for Abraham’s benefit. It was recorded for our benefit, too, assuring us that God will also count us as righteous if we believe in him, the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead” (Romans 4:23-24).
As a result, we need to prepare for God’s new things in 2023 because God, who has a strong hand, is the same now or in the past. So, I will keep in mind what God said in Exodus 6, “Now you shall see what I will do….”
