Israel believed that God was a saving God, not because some thinker evolved the conception from his fertile mind, but because He had revealed Himself in their history as a saving God. He had chosen Israel, when Israel was weak and in bondage, and He had sent Moses down to Egypt in His name to lead them forth. By a great and wonderful deliverance He had delivered them, and through all their history they could not forget it. That deliverance was regulative for all their thinking of God. They believed that He was the controller of history just because it was in history that He had revealed His character to them. They believed that He was the controller of Nature just because He had used Nature as the instrument of that deliverance. In the subsequent history God shows Himself a saving God repeatedly, and uses both Nature and men in whom is His spirit to effect deliverance.

the trick to writing better is to make your writing less like you always thought writing had to be and more like yourself talking about something you know among people you trust.
