Did you ever consider God having fingers and hands and arms? All of them are mentioned in the Bible.
When the Lord finished speaking they had been talking for 40 days. The Lord had given him the laws, set up times and plans for worship, and planned the tabernacle and all of its furnishings. It was one very long conversation with a lot of details. If it had been me I would have needed to at least write down the measurements for the furniture of the tabernacle. The only thing he had in writing were the ten commandments and those had been spoken 34 or 40 days earlier.
Moses most likely did not have pen and paper so God had to write it on rock. God was not one to go tapping with a hammer and chisel. He just wrote in the granite with his finger as easily as you or I might write in the sand. That talks of a strength and gentleness.
Exodus 32:15 - 16 (NKJV) 15 And Moses turned and went down from the mountain, and the two tablets of the Testimony were in his hand. The tablets were written on both sides; on the one side and on the other they were written. 16 Now the tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God engraved on the tablets.
I have heard people say we need to write the law on the tablets of our heart. Iím glad we have a gentle God doing the writing.
Lord, teach me to be more aware of your fingers gently writing my life. Help me not to be hard and unyielding as stone. Thank you for your tenderness when you call me to come up your mountain to spend time with you.
