“Behold, I make a covenant:before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord: for it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.” Exodus 34:10
God told the children of Israel Behold, everyone around you, will see how great and marvelous your God is. They will know without a shadow of doubt I am God. The Great I AM is with you; his wonders to behold.
Behold says to pay attention, look up or around, pause, and stop what you are doing. Even when reading the word, it feels like an exclamation point automatically should follow it. Because something of importance is about to happen, and it is going to be spectacular. And when our God speaks, it is always breathtaking, astonishing, magnificent. So take the words spoken to the children of Israel during their journey to the promised land, and linger in the certainty of this covenant. For we have an even better covenant; one written in the incredible righteousness of Christos, Jesus Christ our redeemer. For it was/is an awesome thing God did for us through Him our precious Behold.
