OBEY!!!

Exodus 4:18-31


To better understand verses 24 to 25, I've pulled an excerpt from biblical scholar and writer Warren Wiersbe, which states,


"Moses had neglected to circumcise his second son, Eliezer, and God struck Moses down with an illness that could have taken his life. We get the impression that when Moses had circumcised Gershom, his firstborn, Zipporah had been appalled by the ceremony and therefore had resisted having Eliezer circumcised. Moses let her have her way and this displeased the Lord. After all, Moses couldn't lead the people of Israel if he was disobedient to one of the fundamental commandments of the Lord, (Genesis 17:10-14). Even if the Jews didn't know it, God knew about his disobedience, and he was greatly displeased."


What does this have to do with me? No, the lesson isn't you have to carry out the same action for your children. Simply put, the lesson is to obey! God has given every one of us guidelines to follow through His' Word. We have the responsibility to uphold those commandments and follow them with our lives. In 2 John 1:6 it says, "And this is love: that we walk in obedience to His commandments. As you have heard from the beginning, this command is that you walk in love. "

Find time in your day to share God's love with those around you. Maybe that is encouraging someone to keep trying, sharing your lunch, or helping someone with their work. There are many ways to show God's love and act in obedience. How can you do that today?


​Open your mind and heart.

Ephesians 5:8 "For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light" Open your eyes to what God has brought you through, and what He is bringing you to.


Believe God wants what's best for you.

James 2:23 The full meaning of "believe" in the Scripture sentence, "Abraham believed God and was set right with God," includes his action. It's that combination of believing and acting that got Abraham named "God's friend."


Exemplify Jesus in your character.

I John 2:6 "Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked."


Yield to Gods purpose for your life

Romans 8:7 Focusing on the self is the opposite of focusing on God. Anyone completely absorbed in self ignores God and ends up thinking more about themselves than God. That person ignores who God is and what He is doing.
