Good evening y’all. Today we are in chapter 7 of Leviticus
I noticed from the chapter that God made provision for the priests. They were busy serving God and God made sure they had what to eat. The priests didn’t have to bother themselves worrying about their meals, because God already made provision for them.
“32 Give the right thigh of your peace offering to the priest as a gift.33 The right thigh must always be given to the priest who offers the blood and the fat of the peace offering. 34 For I have reserved the breast of the special offering and the right thigh of the sacred offering for the priests. It is the permanent right of Aaron and his descendants to share in the peace offerings brought by the people of Israel. 35 This is their rightful share. The special gifts presented to the Lord have been reserved for Aaron and his descendants from the time they were set apart to serve the Lord as priests. 36 On the day they were anointed, the Lord commanded the Israelites to give these portions to the priests as their permanent share from generation to generation.” (Leviticus 7: 32 – 36 NLT)
This made me realize that when we focus our attention on serving and living for God, He will meet our needs which is what He did for the priests. He made sure their needs were met so they could focus on serving Him. I’m reminded of Matthew 6: 33 which says:
“Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need”. (Matthew 6: 33 NLT)
“Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met”. (Matthew 6: 33 MSG)
Aaron and the other priests were totally devoted to Gods work. They weren’t busy worrying about where their next meal will come from, for they knew God had them covered. In the same way, we should busy ourselves with serving and living for God and all those things we need will be added unto us. God knows we need them anyway and He will surely provide. Let’s chase after God rather than material things.
I Pray God will help us seek His kingdom with all our heart and be totally devoted and committed to that which He has called us to. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Thanks for joining today.
Have a blessed evening 🙂
