How To Have A Conversation With God

Conversation With God

Is There A Way?

In this chapter in Exodus we see Moses and Aaron coming before Pharaoh for the first time. They are to relay God’s message to Pharaoh. But as expected he does not want to let his cheap labor force go. This first reaction by Pharaoh is to make the Israelite’s work even harder. He requires them to gather their own stray to make bricks and to keep up the same quota of how many are made. This leads to Moses questioning God’s motives for what He is doing through them. Wondering why is He allowing His people to be even more mistreated?

Have you ever had a conversation with God like Moses had at the end of Exodus 5? Or, do you feel it is wrong to question the Lord’s motives? As we follow the Exodus story we will see Moses questioning God again, take in example:

But Moses implored the Lord his God and said, “O Lord, why does your wrath burn hot against your people, whom you have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? Why should the Egyptians say, ‘With evil intent did he bring them out, to kill them in the mountains and to consume them from the face of the earth’? Turn from your burning anger and relent from this disaster against your people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, your servants, to whom you swore by your own self, and said to them, ‘I will multiply your offspring as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have promised I will give to your offspring, and they shall inherit it forever.’” And the Lord relented from the disaster that he had spoken of bringing on his people.

Questions Asked God Man

In this conversation with God Moses is asking God why and pleading with Him to spear His people. One can also see many examples of such conversations in the Psalms. I believe God wants us to talk to Him about anything and everything. To reason things out with Him. I think of a conversation Nehemiah had with the Lord where he asked for his enemies to have the same treatment they were doing to him. Or, Jesus asking His Father to spare Him the pain of the cross. God wants us to be honest, to be raw, to be real with Him. As we are fully open is when He can speak to such emotions and thoughts.

So, next time the world around you seems overwhelming. Get on your knees, and send the conversation, the ugliness of your emotions, the confusion of your thoughts to the Lord. Cry, yell, but then slow down and listen, let God shape your thoughts and actions as He guides you through the situation.
