Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today. Remember to read the entire passage.
“The people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, ‘Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’”
- As God faithfully brought the Israelites out of the land of Egypt, He calls Moses to Mount Sinai to solidify His covenant with His people and to give Moses the law. While Moses is gone, the people wonder where he is. God is sharing His heart for His people, and His people are asking for another god. Do you ever question where God is?
- Our own strength & knowledge is no strength at all! Have you created a golden calf (money, happiness, friends, success) to make yourself feel more comfortable?
- You can be certain, God’s steadfast love endures forever…He is working even when you don’t feel like it! Confess your idols now and ask the Lord to cleanse your heart and guide you as you trust in Him alone!
Again, it is about a relationship built on trust…
Lord, “If I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may know you in order to find favor in your sight.”
Praying for you!
