“Then I fell down like the first time in the presence of the Lord for 40 days and 40 nights; I did not eat bread or drink water because of all the sin you committed, doing what was evil in the Lord’s sight and provoking Him to anger.”
Deuteronomy 9:18 HCSB
Moses had just come down from Mount Horeb (aka Mount Sinai) after a 40 day fast while he met with God only to find the Israelites had forged a calf image and turned away from God during this brief time away. Yet, after fasting 40 days, Moses fell down prostrate before God and fasted ANOTHER 40 days, interceding on behalf of the wayward clan, begging God to not destroy them.
I can’t help but wonder how many people there are in modern times who grieve sin so deeply as did Moses. One? Two? While I have no answer, I know this one thing is true: our sin and the sins of others is not to be taken lightly, cheapening the sacrifice of Christ.
“If My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14 HCSB🚦
