Wesley's Notes for Exodus 32:14


32:14 And the Lord repented of the evil he thought to do - Though he designed to punish them, yet he would not ruin them. See here, the power of prayer, God suffers himself to be prevailed with by humble believing importunity. And see the compassion of God towards poor sinners, and how ready he is to forgive.


Discussion for Exodus 32:14

  • LEAISA WILLIAMS on Exodus 32:14
    I RECENTLY RECEIVED A WORD,INWHICH THE LORD ASKED ME TO FORGIVE HIM FOR TAKING MY HUSBAND, HIS SON.HE WAS A LOVING CHRISTIAN MAN,HUSBAND AND FATHER WHO DIED OF CANCER FOURTEEN YEARS AGO. I MUST SAY,MINISTRY FOR ME AFTER HIS DEATH, HAD BECOME LIKE A RITUAL AT BEST AND I DISCONNECTED MY HEART. IT WAS SOMETHING WE BOTH SHARED VERY DEEPLY, HELPING OTHERS TO FIND THEIR WAY TO AND WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. SO I WONDERED IF OUR LORD COULD INDEED REPENT OR WAS THIS JUST MY EMOTIONS OUT OF CONTROL. THIS SCRIPTURE CAME TO MIND WHEN THE LORD REPENTED OF THE EVIL OF MAKING MAN IN THE BOOD OF GENESIS AND FOR WANTING TO DESTORY MAN IN THE BOOK OF EXODUS. WHAT A LOVING FATHER WE HAVE, I UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR GOD TO REPENT EVEN IF ITS NOT THAT OFTEN.NOW I AM CELEBRATING THE LIFE THAT I AND MY HUSBAND HAD INSTEAD OF GREIVING OVER WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN. ALL THE PEOPLE I TALKED TO THESE LAST FOURTEEN YEARS, COULD NOT UNDERSTAND MY PAIN, BUT IN ONE MOMENT GOD SPEAKS A WORD OF REPENTANCE TO ME AND THATS EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED FOR MY HEALING. IT IS JUST THAT PERSONAL TO HIM. THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!
  • Ama Agyewaa on Exodus 32:14
    I searched the true meaning of repentance today after reading this verse. Sadly, all along I thought it meant to change from your ways of sin. Gladly I know now that it has to do more with regret and remorse, something Yah sees best. It says He repented he felt remorse for even thinking about destroying the people he had saved. Hallelu Yah! I 'm not surprised being made in His own image that he feels remorse. As mortals, when someone you love and have sacrificed so much for does something and sometimes you forget all that you have shared and want to take drastic measures. It makes me love Him more. Yah is not capable of sin though, what he was going to do was the natural response to His 'heartbreak '. He repented of the disaster He planned to unleash on His people. What gets me excited is the relationship Moses had with Him to enable him make the Creator feel bad about wanting to destroy his creation. I want that relationship. God must see purity in me to draw me close to him. I must follow his commands to make him stand the sight of me. He must see humility to be able to show me all of Him.
