“So Moses counted them, as he was commanded by the word of the Lord.” Numbers 3:16
(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Numbers 3-4 & Acts 25)
Moses is a positive role model in this verse.
God tells Him to count the Israelites and he goes about doing it.
I must also do the Will of God, but how do I know what that Will is? I believe that God gives insights to those who are living close to Him. It may be through a sermon, song, Scripture and assorted other possibilities.
I find that on occasion an insight will be dropped into my thoughts on something I should do or an elaboration on some of my thinking.
Today I was confronted with a thought about representing God in my midst. It became clear to me that I need to hear and see, in my midst, as God does and would. I realized that despite wanting God in my midst I was failing to realize that God is in the midst in me. The insight helped me clarify my Godly responsibilities in a new way.
“Lord, I thank You for insights. I need them. I want to live to please You. Help me to see and listen as a representative of You in my midst. Forgive me for lessening my responsibilities. You are my God. I love You, Father.”
