“Then the LORD said to Moses, Do not fear him, for I have delivered him into your hand, with all this people and his land; and you shall do it to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who dwelt at Heshbon.”
We really have nothing to fear, when we are walking with the LORD! Fear comes when we walk in our own ways, doing our own thing.
“The LORD is my Rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation my stronghold.”
We all have obstacles and and what would seem to be impossible situations in front of us, but with the LORD there is no problem! He has it all covered and worked out for us!
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?”
So as we go through our day, remember the LORD has it already worked out! Have a blessed day.
“Then Israel sang this song: Spring up, O well! All of you who sing to it.”
We need to be singing praises to the LORD, no matter how things look or what is going on in your life the LORD is good!
“I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.”
No matter what problems we may have good or bad, we need to praise the LORD!
“ I will praise You, O LORD, among the people’s; I will sing to You among the nations.”
Today let us simply praise the LORD no matter what! Let the well of salvation spring up and overflow in your life. Have a blessed day in the LORD!
“Thus Edom refused to give Israel passage through his territory; so Israel turned away from him.”
Two things here; first if Moses was just following the LORD and the pillar, the cloud of smoke and fire that God had set before them, he wouldn’t need permission from Edom. So follow the LORD, not the world.
“You shall walk after the LORD your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him.”
Secondly; we also can look at this obstacle as a way the LORD directs us from disaster. Often times in life we can lose a job, have health issues or financial problems. Then you feel like you have to go the long way around! Realize when these obstacles of life appear it maybe the LORD saving you from a bigger disaster!
“Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.”
Life happens, but if we are following hard after the LORD, you will be blessed and know that when we follow the LORD, He is always saving us from even bigger disasters! Have a blessed day in the LORD!
“He who touches the dead body of anyone shall be unclean seven days.”
The Lord really doesn’t want us messing with things that represent the Dead or that will bring death upon us! He desires us to make right life style choices and walk in His ways!
Psalms 119:11 (NKJV) Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.
When we walk in His ways it will always fill us with life! Walking in the was of the world will always fill us with confusion, destruction and death. The LORD wants us to be full of His life not the worlds death.
Psalms 19:9 (NKJV) The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
Don’t mess with Dead things! Have a blessed day!
“For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him.”
We are to be living for the LORD, not the world. Unfortunately today folks are living for the world not the LORD and there are preachers who are willing to preach that today!
“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the LORD who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.
2 Peter 2:1
We need to be a people who are just living and shining for the LORD, making sure all we say and do glorifies Him.
“You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus.”
1 Peter 2:5
So today we need to be living and shining for the LORD not the world. Have a blessed day in Him.
