The Lord, The Lord September 4, 2012

Pondering tonight the verse:

The LORD passed before him (Moses) and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,                              Exodus 34:6

That repetitive phrase The Lord, the Lord keeps moving through my mind tonight. Who is merciful? The Lord, The Lord.

Who is gracious? The Lord, The Lord.

Who is slow to anger? The Lord, The Lord

Who is abounding in steadfast love? The Lord, The Lord.

Who is faithful? The Lord, The Lord.

Just like catchy slogans get caught in my mind, this phrase keeps moving through my thoughts.  He is the answer each time. And repeated for emphasis. Who can do a mighty work? The Lord, The Lord. Who can breathe life into the dead? The Lord, The Lord. Who can fix what is broken? The Lord, The Lord.  Who can make something beautiful- who can bring life- who can draw hearts to himself? The Lord, The Lord.

Lest you forget- He repeats. Maybe because we always do forget. And need to remember.
