chronological day 55 :)

Please read Leviticus 23, Leviticus 24, and Leviticus 25:1-23.  Let’s visit for a minute – what do you see in the Bible today?

Unknown-1

I took a break from the Message this morning.  In my old faithful New King James, I counted 31 times that God says, “I am the Lord” in the laws.  31 times that the Lord gave a new law or piece of direction, and then followed the new law with the statement: “I am the Lord”. 

“you shall fear your God; for I am the Lord your God” (25:17 NKJV)

Why is this significant?  In the absence of understanding (because maybe the people, either then or today, may not have fully understood all the laws or reasons), we have to trust that GOD IS GOD and His intentions toward us are always good.  Do you understand His commandments? Great! Follow them! You don’t understand His commandments? Great! Follow them anyway because He is your God! Never fall into the trap of exchanging God’s wisdom for your own.

One thought on “chronological day 55 :)

    Several things stayed with me while reading today. The Lord asked Moses to command the people to bring pure oil for the lamp stands. This is followed by “this is a permanent law for you and must be observed from generation to generation”. The same was said for the holy bread. It was a permanent right for the priest to eat the bread that was provided by the people. Later in chapter 25 the lord talks about working the land for six years then letting it rest on the seventh. What will you eat then on the seventh year if you can’t plant.
    Leviticus25:18 and 22, Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. While you plant during the eighth year, you will eat from the old crop and will continue to eat from it until the harvest of the ninth year comes in.
    Today’s takeaway: Surely there will be times we will have to work hard and provide, but following the Lord and keeping faith will keep us fed in more ways than one.
