My husband enjoys making pizza dough from scratch and recently has also made soft pretzels from scratch. They are delicious, but they require yeast, and yeast takes time. But the night the Israelites left Egypt, there was no time to let dough rise. God was so specific, the instructions were repeated, and His people followed His directions (Wahoo!!). God knows what is good for us, He knows what we will need ahead of us and He provides before we even know.
This night was the first Passover. God fulfilled His promise. AND, God wants us to CELEBRATE the GOOD He has done with a yearly festival! Have you ever marked your calendars for remembering something yearly? What about one of my favorites- celebrate your Baptism Birthday yearly?! We can celebrate a job long waited for, really, any good news long waited for, and mark it yearly on our calendars because we need those reminders of good times and the blessings we can be so thankful for because our Heavenly Father provided for us.
Heavenly Father, thank you for being So good to us! I suppose if we had a calendar set aside specifically for you, you would fill all the days with something to rejoice about because you are that Wonderful to us! Help us to follow your directions and help us to remember to celebrate your love for us! In Your Son’s Name, Amen!
