“Moshe assembled the whole community of the people of Israel and said to them, These are the things which Adonai has ordered you to do.”
Exodus 35:1 CJB
Not to sound legalistic or like a doom and gloom guy, but maybe we have not really been listening to the LORD and doing our own things!
“If you hold back your foot on Shabbat from pursuing your own intrests on my holy day; if you call Shabbat a delight, Adonai’s holy day, worth honoring; then honor it by not doing your usual things or pursuing your interests or speaking about them. If you do, you will find delight in Adonai-I will make you ride on the heights of the land and feed you with the heritage of your ancestor Yakov, for the mouth of Adonai has spoken.”
Isaiah 58:13-14 CJB
The LORD really does know what is best for us! That is doing everything His way, not ours! The beautiful thing is when we blow it, all we have to do is call upon Him and repent!
“At that time, whoever calls on the name of Adonai will be saved. For in Mount Tziyon and Yerushalayim there will be those who escape, as Adonai has promised; among the survivors will be those whom Adonai has called.”
Joel 3:5 CJB also: Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13
Today, let’s do things the LORD’s way and let’s pray for repentance. This, I believe, is what we and the world really needs! We need JESUS!
Have a blessed day!
