Exodus 34:28 KJV
And he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
It is important to note that Moses had already destroyed the first tablets of stones with the commandments inscribed on them. It took him 40days and 40nights at the mountain of God.
So this was the second set of 40days and 40nights Moses had to spend again to receive what he had received already. A total of 80days and 80nights
That is what sin does! It stalls your progress.
God is ever willing for us to make a u-turn to Him when we sin. We all know that for as many times as we sin, He will always receive us back, because His Love knows no end. But… there are implications on our spirituality.
Sin draws us back, anytime we repent of our sins, we are brought back to a previous position of spirituality. So that instead of making progress, we spend another ’40days’ to receive what we already received. Ponder over this as we begin the week.
Have a blessed day.
