Serve the LORD!

“And they shall attend to his needs and the needs of the whole congregation before the tabernacle of meeting, to do the work of the tabernacle.”

Numbers 3:7

We are called to serve the LORD, this is something we all need to be part of!

“Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.”

Psalm 100:2

When do we do this? Everyday there is a serving, sharing and witnessing opportunity. We just have to look and be open to how the LORD would have us serve!

“This is the day the LORD has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.”

Psalm 118:24

Today let us look for a need and step out and fill it! We are all called by the LORD to serve, Have a blessed day attending to the needs we see around us!

Keep the LORD at the center!

“Everyone of the children of Israel shall camp by his own standard, beside the emblems of his father’s house; they shall camp some distance from the tabernacle of meeting.”

Numbers 2:2

Notice that the children of Israel are commanded to keep the tabernacle (where the LORD dwells) at the center of their camp. The same is true for us today as we should keep the LORD at the center of our lives!

“One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.”

Psalm 27:4

Life always goes better when the LORD is at the center! No matter what we do, the LORD needs to be in the middle of it all!

“The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Psalm 118:6

Have a blessed day camping around the LORD, keeping Him at the center of your life.

The LORD calls us worthy

“Take a census of all the congregation of the children of Israel, by their families, by their fathers houses, according to the number of names, every male individually, from twenty years old and above – all who go to war in Israel. You and Aaron shall number them by their armies.”

Numbers 1:2-3

Realize when we count something we give it value! Here the LORD is giving value to the children of Israel, He also values you and I!

“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”

Luke 12:7

Also notice here in the original Hebrew its says all the young men were able to serve! The same goes for you and I today we are all able to serve the LORD, no matter what skills we think we have or don’t have!

“Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.”

Psalm 100:2

Today remember you are counted to be worthy by the LORD and you are able to serve the LORD! Have a blessed day knowing you matter to the LORD!

Share the love of the LORD

“Then He said to them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the LORD of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Luke 10:2

This is a sobering thought Jesus shares here, we all can be so consumed with our own bottom line; That we overlook the fact people around us are empty, broken and in desperate need of hope!

“Our God is the God of salvation; And to God the LORD belong escapes from death.”

Psalm 68:20

Today let us really look for people to share with, not just a one time deal and walk away. Purpose to spend time with them and becoming their neighbor! Sharing the love of the LORD!

“So he answered and said, YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, and YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.

And He said to him, You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.”

Luke 10:27-28

We all really have a responsibility to share the good news of salvation with those around us! Let’s not get all caught up in the business and noise of the world; but instead let’s be about the business of the LORD!

Judge not!

“Now John answered and said, Master, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we forbade him because he does not follow us. But Jesus said to him, Do not forbid him, for he who is not against us is on our side.”

Luke 9:49-50

How often do we act like John thinking we are the greatest, mocking other ministries or wanting to call fire down from heaven to consume others! We really need to pay more attention to our own walk with the LORD, than look and judge others! OUCH!

“Jesus said to him, If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? YOU FOLLOW ME.”

John 21:22

In other words if we are honest with ourselves (don’t worry the LORD see’s and knows all) we will realize we all need to work on following the LORD!

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God.”

Micah 6:8

Today let us talk about the LORD, point to the LORD and walk with Him. God really does have everything all sorted out, we need to just reflect His glorious light! Have a blessed day!

Shabbat Shalom!
