Leviticus 24 – God way or My way

Good afternoon y’all. Today we are studying Leviticus 24.

Be blessed 🙂

Verse 12 is the key verse for me.

“They kept the man in custody until the Lord’s will in the matter should become clear to them”. (Lev 24: 12 NLT)

“put him under guard, and waited for the Lord to tell them what to do with him”. (Lev 24: 12 GNT)

Moses and the Israelites refused to take a decision until they knew what God was saying regards the issue. How often do we make decisions without consulting God? We assume He should be okay with whatever we come up with.
Proverbs 3: 5- 6  tells us not to lean on our own understanding but acknowledge God in all our ways.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take”. (NLT)

I love the fact that God’s opinion on the matter was more important to Moses and the Israelites than their own opinion. They were willing to wait till God gave them instructions on what to do.

I pray we will learn to lean on and trust in God for direction even in the little things that we think are not important to God.

In Psalm 32:8 God tells us He will guide us on what to do at all times.

“The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
    I will advise you and watch over you”.(NLT)

Why not take God up on the offer? This is the Almighty God, the One who created it all and knows the end from the beginning. He is saying let Me take you by the hand and lead you daily. That’s the only sure path to success and living a fulfilled life.

Prayer:
Dear Lord, we thank You for today. Forgive us for the times we have relied on our own understanding instead of relying on You. Please give us the grace to always seek You before making decisions and always put You first in everything we do. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ Name we’ve prayed. Amen.
