“You shall offer peace offerings, and shall eat there, and rejoice before the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 27:7
What an awesome God we have. His COMMAND to us is to be at peace with Him, eat and celebrate that we are His and He is ours. Wow! What a thought to carry you throught the day!
“Then Moses looked over all the work, and indeed they had done it; as the Lord had commanded, just so they had done it. And Moses blessed them.” Exodus 39:43
Oh to be able to say that of myself as well! More and more I am coming to think that living for the Lord is more about changing my life when He asks me to, than in being “right” in the beginning. Indeed, as I learn more about Him, the more my life becomes an odyssey of change.
“Behold, my Servant, whom I uphold!”
God the Father upheld His Son through all His days on earth. No force of evil was able to disrupt Christ’s work. When the people wanted to crown Him king, he escaped. When they raged against him to kill him, he avoided them as well. His time had not yet come.
How comforting to know that God holds all my times in His hands. Not until my “time has come” will I come to the end of my life. It is easier to devote myself to the small work of each day knowing that all of my life, including my dreams, is held safely in His hands. Like Moses, I can serve without fear in Midian, knowing that , if I have a larger calling later, it will come and I will be ready for it. God upholds me. Time, age, and disease cannot steal from me the”works God has prepared in advance for [me] to do.”
