So Moses took a little longer than had been anticipated to come down from Gods presence. The people task Aaron to provide them another God. Did they think they were playing snakes and ladders? Now the direction for information has changed from the leader to the people. Charles Olowojoba, published an article in Daily Trust, July, 2021, on How to Reverse Delay. He says that while the devil may maximize delay to distract, discourage and destroy, God uses it to orchestrate divine appointments. Sometimes God may allow a delay to expose certain weakness that will not augur well for the next level of development. In this instance, God was going to proof the people of Israel. They fail for it. Read the verse again. Well, whenever there’s a delay, it creates pains in the heart. Prov.13:12 says it makes the heart sick. How do you react when there’s an apparent delay in Gods fulfilment of a promise? I’ve known the pains of waiting. I waited an extra year to defend my masters thesis because the Supervisor refused to read my work. I wept when I saw others I was better than graduate. I lost jobs and opportunities. Has anyone been there? That’s how the people felt. If you are reactionary at such moments, you will make mistakes. When its not coming through, just wait a little longer, and go to God in prayers. Three days must have looked like eternity for Jesus to resurrect. Wait…God is coming through in style. I assure you.
And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. Exodus 32:1 KJV
