Deuteronomy 6-9, Acts 25

For you are a holy people (set apart) to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be a people for His own possession (that is, His very special treasure). The Lord did not love you and choose you because you were greater in number than any of the other peoples for you were the fewest of all peoples.  But because the Lord loves you and is keeping the oath which He swore to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed (bought) you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.  Therefore know (without any doubt) and understand that the Lord your God He is God, the faithful God, who is keeping His covenant and His (steadfast) lovingkindness to a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments; (Deut. 7: 6-97 Ampl.)

Try reading these verses starting with your name.  Carol, you are a holy people…. I don’t know about you, but it just seems so real.  God loves me, God chose me, I am set apart, I know without a doubt that He is God and He is faithful.  His love is steadfast, all I have to do is love Him back and keep His commandments.  Easy right?

Many years ago I studied the Bible and when I read about blessings and curses, I decided I wanted to be under that umbrella of blessing.  I have not changed my mind.  Have I followed His commandments perfectly? No! But like the Israelites, there are things I need to drive out of the land the Lord gave me. Things like hatred, anger, jealousy, doubt and fear.  And, I need to drive them out completely, not leaving one sliver alive because it would be a deadly trap for me.

The Lord your God will clear away these nations before you little by little; you will not be able to put an end to them quickly, for (if you did) the wild animals would become too numerous for you. (Deut. 7:22 Ampl.)

But the Lord does not expect me to clean house in one day. He is patient with me.  He knows that trying to do too much at once, would frustrate me and cause me to give up and be devoured by them.  So, He works with me a little bit at a time. Slowly ridding me of my enemies.  On the flip side, if the house was cleaned all in one day, maybe my confidence would become great, and I might think I don’t need God. Maybe, I would become puffed up. 

….He might make you understand (by personal experience) that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord (Deut. 8:3b Ampl.)

Otherwise, you may say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hand made me this wealth.’ (Deut. 8: 17 Amplified)

So know today (with confident assurance) that the Lord your God is crossing (the Jordan) before you like a devouring fire.  He will destroy them and He will subdue them before you, and you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, just as the Lord has promised you.  (Deut. 8:3 Ampl.)

God keeps His promises. I may not have access to all the promises He had for Israel, but nonetheless, I have promises.  And His promises are not because of anything that I do, for I am a stubborn, obstinate stiff-necked individual, but it is because I am under the new covenant, which is more powerful than the original one. God hates evil, whether I am the one acting that way, or Israel. However, if I choose to honor God with my life, I can be confident that He will lead me one step at a time away from the things that try to ensnare me, and care for me with His great power and by His outstretched arm.

God did just that with Paul.  It may not appear that way to an outsider, since Paul was in jail, but still He was with Paul.  He had people in the right place at the right time, time and time again.  God placed Paul before Kings and allowed him to share his testimony over and over:  Jesus is alive!! And because Paul was faithful to Jesus, Jesus was faithful to Paul.

I may not understand God’s methods, I may not understand his thought process, but I understand that He is God, and He faithfully leads me to my promised land—which is in heaven!

Father God, thank you that I can know that even when I cannot see it, you are working in my life.  You teach me little by little, step by step, until my life here on earth is over.  You never give up on me, even if I give up on myself, and Your strength is made perfect in my weakness.  When I slow down enough to look for you, or to hear your voice, I am amazed that you are so close to my side.  Thank you for your faithfulness. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!

Numbers 6-7, Psalms 22, and Acts 15

The vow of the Nazirite is one separated and dedicated to the Lord.  This vow was voluntary and was for the time specified by the individual.  But the usual time period was one year.  To me, to do anything for a year, or even 6 months, takes determination. You have to be truly committed to your cause, and wake up every morning more determined than yesterday.  This would be easier if you were in solitude, without distractions, but scriptures tells us that people were close enough to fall dead and touch you, and negate your vow and cause you to start over.  So there were things all around to distract , and to cause one to look away from God, if you weren’t very committed to God.  It takes a person of fortitude, a person looking to hear from God, and obey what they hear Him say.  It requires a strong will and a strong love for God to want to do the things God asks of you to do, and to overcome the things he asks you to give up.

He shall abstain from wine and strong drink; he shall drink no vinegar, whether made from wine or strong drink, nor shall he drink any grape juice nor eat fresh or dried grapes.  All the time of his separation he shall not eat anything produced from the grapevine, from the seeds even to the skins.  All the time of the vow of his separation no razor shall be used on his head.  Until the time of his separation to the Lord is completed, he shall be holy, and shall let the hair of his head grow long.  All the time that he separates himself to the Lord he shall not go near a dead body.  He shall not make himself (ceremonially) unclean for his father, mother, brother, or sister, when they die, because (the responsibility for) his separation to God is on his head.  All the time of his separation he is holy to the Lord.  (Numbers 6:3-8 AMP)

This is not something to take lightly.  If you vow to God, your heart better be in it for the duration.  Holiness is sacred. 

As a result of being set apart for God, you will find there are blessings because of it.

But God you are Holy, O You who are enthroned in (the Holy place where) the praises of Israel (are offered). In You our fathers trusted (leaned on, relied on, and were confident); They trusted and You rescued them.  They cried out to You and were delivered; They trusted in You and were not disappointed or ashamed. (Psalms 22:3-5 AMP)

Not saying I am a Nazirite, but I am a Christian, and I am called to be separate from the world, and devoted to God. But in the midst of the devotion, sometimes I can mess up stuff in my life.  I have good intentions.  But things don’t always go as planned.  So, when I am crying out to God, and feel that God is distant, I can know I am not alone.

My God, my God why have you forsaken me? Why are You so far from helping me and from the words of my groaning? O my God I call out by day, but You do not answer; And by night but I find no rest nor quiet. (Psalms 22:1-2 AMP)

 It is good to remind myself over and over of God’s faithfulness and God’s love for me.  Just as David did.  I seems when I take my thoughts off my problems and start praising and worshiping God for who He is, that I get a fresh perspective and sometimes even peace in the midst of my turmoil.  Faith in God’s love and God’s faithfulness trumps over anything I may be feeling about Him in the moment, especially if it is wrong. God will never leave me or forsake me, ever! Not for any reason! I just need to change my perspective and my thinking to line up with God and His character. I need to trust in God’s timing for me. I need to use patience, and not jump to conclusions that God has forsaken me.

And it is not just every day, ordinary people, like me, who can struggle with what God is planning to do.  Sometimes the real “spiritual” people can struggle with things too.  Paul and Barnabas had a disagreement about Mark and whether to bring him along.  Paul was speaking objectively because they took him once and he abandoned them.  Barnabas was speaking out of love for his cousin, thinking every one should have a second chance.  Like him, I tend to defend those I know closely, even if what they did was not right, somehow, I justify why they are like they are, in my mind.

Encouragement strengthens the believer, and it can bring comfort and rejoicing to those who receive it. Somewhere along the line, I seem to remember that Barnabas meant encouragement.  Barnabas was being Barnabas; he couldn’t help it. It was how God made him. But nevertheless, it created two teams and covered more territory than Paul and Barnabas could have done on their own.  Not every disagreement is bad, sometimes it can force us to take a new and better path.

After some time Paul said to Barnabas, “Let us go back and visit the brothers and sisters (believers) in every city where we preached the message of the Lord, and see how they are doing.” Now Barnabas wanted to take (his cousin) John, who was called Mark, along with them.  But Paul kept insisting that they should not take along with them the one who had quit and deserted them in Pamphylia and had not gone on with them to the work.  And it became a sharp disagreement that they separated from one another, and Barnabas took (John) Mark with him and sailed away to Cyprus.  But Paul chose Silas (who was again in Antioch) and set out (on his second journey) commended by the brothers to the grace and favor of the Lord.  and he traveled through Syria and Cilicia, strengthening the churches. (Acts 15: 36-41 AMP)

And so, in the spirit of Barnabas, to encourage and strengthen all who are reading this, I pray:

The Lord bless you, and keep you (protect you, sustain you, and guard you);

The Lord make His face shine upon you (with favor);

And be gracious to you (surrounding you with lovingkindness);

The Lord lift up His countenance (face) upon you (with divine approval);

And give you peace (a tranquil heart and life).

(Numbers 6:24-26 AMP)

Leviticus 1-3, Acts 5

When I first read through this reading, I could not help but say “yuck!”  But as in everything that God does, nothing is done for nothing.  He formed the earth and all its contents to work in unison, and He formed the human body also to work in unison. And so, He is working in unison with His people.  Everything had its place, every person had their assignments, every animal had their assignment, even down to the smallest detail; the blood, the entrails, the organs, and the meat.  All this was to cleanse the ones who wandered outside of God’s purpose and plan for their life.  I may not be able to understand God’s methods, but I know I can trust them to be good and right, if not in the moment, then somewhere down the road. 

The Bible says that all have sinned.  Everyone then, and everyone now.  It is only because of the love God has for His people that the sacrifices were established, otherwise He would have to destroy every person.  Man had dominion over animals, so the animals and birds became the sacrifices.  To me, it doesn’t seem fair, but I get it!  It was the cute little animals, or God’s cute little people.  Man was a special creation right from the start.  Man was made in God’s image—I know sometimes I question why God loves us so much, especially because of all we have put him through from early times, until now.  But the truth is that, He does love each and every one of us!  That is why there were sacrifices, to cleanse and purify us, so that we could find peace in our lives, and so that we could live.

And so, the animals were killed by the people in front of the priests, the head, entrails and fat, and legs placed on the altar, the blood sprinkled on the sides, and the meat cut in pieces.

And the priest shall offer all of it and burn it on the altar, it is a burnt offering, a food offering with a pleasing aroma to the Lord.  (Leviticus 1:9b, 1:17b ESV)

It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, in all your dwelling places, that you eat neither fat nor blood. (Leviticus 3:17 ESV)

Just as God expected obedience in the Old Testament, He expects obedience in the New Testament.  Why?  Not to be a hard taskmaster, but again out of love.  Obedience leads to a blessing of some sort, not always what we imagine, but spiritual blessing that will remain for eternity.  God operates on a higher plane, but I have learned to trust Him and have faith that He is working for me.  It is Satan’s desire to place doubt in my mind and cause me to not trust, but to try and provide for myself.

Ananias and Sapphira are perfect examples of how this plays out: 

But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back for yourself part of the proceeds of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? Why is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and breathed his last.  And great fear came upon all who heard of it. (Acts 5: 3-5 ESV)

God didn’t care that Ananias and Sapphira kept money for themselves.  God cared that they lied about it.  In this case, enough to kill them.  It would have been better if they just laid the money down on the desk and kept silent.  If they didn’t discuss it amongst themselves.  Maybe, the couple thought they were being good financial planners.  But God gave Peter wisdom about the situation and saw it as a scheme of Satan.  God wants us to trust and obey Him, not Satan.  Fear, in this instance is wise, if it keeps us from doing the schemes of the devil.

The Apostles continued to grow as they witnessed to all who would listen.  The religious sect became furious with them and wanted them gone.  They also didn’t want to hear that the blood of Jesus was on their hands.  There was forgiveness for them, just like everyone else, but they didn’t want forgiveness.  They didn’t want to change their ways.  They just wanted power, and it felt like it was shifting over to the Apostles.  They put the apostles in jail.  An angel of the Lord let them out.  The Lord told them to continue witnessing, and He gave them the boldness and the courage to do so.  Then, they were put right back in jail!

And when they had brought them, they set them before the council.  And the high priest questioned then, saying, “We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” But Peter and the apostles answered,” We must obey God rather than men.  The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree.  God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.  and we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”  (Acts 5:27-32 ESV)

The Pharisees became furious and wanted to kill the apostles.

But a Pharisee in the council named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law held in honor by all the people, stood up and gave orders to put the men outside for a little while. (Acts 5:34 ESV)

Not BUT Gamaliel, BUT GOD!

Gamaliel spoke wisdom to the men, and in part said:

“So in the present case I tell you, keep away from these men and let them alone, for if this plan or this undertaking is of man, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them.  You might even be found opposing God!” So they took his advice. (Acts 5:38-39 ESV)

God can use anyone, even someone on the opposing team to come to your aid.  Never forget it!

And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.  (Acts 5 :42 ESV)

Father God, help me to never be found opposing You! Give me your courage and boldness whenever I may need it.  Help me to know wisdom when I hear it. Help me to be obedient! In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN and AMEN!

Exodus 5-8, Luke 18

Afterward Moses and Aaron went and said to Pharaoh,” Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, “Let my people go, that they may hold a feast to me in the wilderness.” But Pharaoh said,” Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice and let Israel go? I do not know the Lord, and moreover I will not let Israel go.”  (Exodus 5:1-2 ESV )

Pharaoh could have said yes right away, but we knew he wasn’t going to because God said He would harden his heart.  Moreover, Pharaoh thought that if the Israelites had time to go and worship their God, they must have time to get their own straw. 

So the people were scattered throughout all the land of Egypt to gather stubble for straw.  The taskmasters were urgent, saying, “complete your work, your daily task each day, as when there was straw. (Exodus 5:12 ESV)

Because the Israelites now had more tasks, were being beaten, and treated harshly, they were disillusioned as to what God was doing.  Like them, I can’t always look at my circumstances to see what God is up to.  He does work in mysterious ways, and He almost never does things the way I would like Him to.  I must go by what I know about God, not what I see going on around me.  But because the Israelites had been living in Egypt, and probably heard the stories of how the Egyptians took care of them during the famine, their allegiance to God had probably waned, and they looked to Pharaoh as their god.

They met Moses and Aaron who were waiting for them, as they came out from Pharaoh, and they said to them, “ The Lord look on you and judge, because you have made us stink in the sight of Pharaoh and his servants, and have put a sword in their hand to kill us.”

Then Moses turned to the Lord and said,” O Lord, why have you done evil to this people? Why did you ever send me? For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in your name, he has done evil to this people, and you have not delivered your people at all.” (Exodus 5:20-23 ESV)

God was working in the hearts of the Israelites, Moses, and Pharaoh.  How like God to begin by orchestrating people, one at a time. God builds faith one person at a time, one step at a time.  When it is happening, you may not recognize the hand of God at the time.

God is building Moses’ confidence in himself, and in God. 

God is showing Pharaoh that He is real, and that He is greater than all his magicians.

God is showing the Israelites that He is God, the same God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  Remembering the same promises He made to Abraham so long ago. 

As they look around at their situation, they could not believe how it can be so.  I can relate with them, with them all!  I have felt the same feelings throughout my life.  I have felt as if I was in charge of my situation and those around me. I have felt that I was not good enough for a specific task. And I have felt as if I was being overlooked at different times, and in different situations. A broken spirit can cause you to draw wrong conclusions. So, at this point, the Israelites cared more about what Pharaoh thought, than what God thought.  After all, Pharaoh was the one having them beaten, and God is the one that caused it.  They wanted to please Pharaoh. They wanted their suffering to stop.

Patience is what they needed, but they did not know it yet.

Moses and Aaron went back to Pharaoh, and said, “let God’s people go!

But still, Pharaoh refused. 

So, God proceeded to turn up the heat a bit. First God turned the water to blood.  The magicians were able to do the same. Pharaoh did not even beg for mercy; he just turned and went into his house.  Maybe he had a stash of Deer Park in his basement.

Next came the frogs.  The magicians were able to make frogs too. 

Why would they want more frogs? Just to prove God wasn’t all that?  There will always be deception around to keep my eyes from seeing God at work.  Satan mimics God at times steals my trust and destroys my faith.  Sometimes he will create bad stuff so I will think God doesn’t care. And sometimes, he puts good in my life, by the hands of someone else not associated with God,  to divert whom I put my trust in.  Fortunately, I have the bible (unlike the Israelites) to help me along the way, but I am sometimes slow to grasp what God is saying to me, how God is guiding me, and who God is and what His character is.

Then came the gnats. The magicians could not duplicate the gnats. 

The magicians tried by their secret arts to produce gnats, but they could not.  So there were gnats on man and beast.  Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God,” But Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he would not listen to them, as the Lord had said. (Exodus 8:18-19 ESV)

Sometimes God uses other people to help me see that God is at work. But sometimes my heart will not believe them. God will not stop trying to reach me, in spite of me.

Next up- the frogs. 

But on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen where my people dwell, so that no swarms of flies shall be there, that you may know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.  Thus I will put a division between my people and your people.  Tomorrow this sign shall happen.’ and the Lord did so. (Exodus 8:23-24a ESV)

God is starting to get Israel’s attention by separating them from the plagues.

Pharaoh would ask Moses to plead for mercy with God, but after he got what he wanted, he would change his mind about letting the people go.  That is how it works with me, sometimes. I can make a promise to God, and if I get my way, sometimes I revert away from my promise.  It shows that I was not sincere with my words, only for the moment, to get my way.  That is why God says let your yes be yes and your no, no. God knows my heart, He knows my sincerity, He also knows my insincerity. But sometimes, I think He works with me to build my faith, and open my eyes to see what He is doing. God meets me right where I am, that is why He deals with each of us individually, because we are in different places, in different situations.  Pharaoh was starting to see God through Moses.  It was a start.

All three, Moses, Pharaoh and the Israelites; are learning that God is who He says He is, and that God will do what  He says He will do. 

When God says He will be with you, He will be with you!  No matter what He has to go through, to make it happen, He will get there, I just need to be patient.  I have no idea how many obstacles he has to go through, one step at a time.  But He will work it all out in the end.

He said,” In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man.  And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying,” Give me justice against my adversary.” For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, “Though I neither fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so, that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.” And the Lord said,” Hear what the unrighteous judge says.  And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them? I tell you, he will give justice to them speedily.  (Luke 18: 2-8a ESV)

This sounds like the same situation as Pharaoh and the Israelites.  If God doesn’t seem to answer quick enough for me. I must not give up.  Not necessarily to wear God down, but because I know that I am in the right, and he will let justice prevail, even if it takes longer than I want it to.

Father God, there is so much going on behind the scenes that I do not know about.  Help me to wait on your timing, no matter my struggles, because your answer will be perfect and just what I need.  There are things hidden from me and also things I do not grasp, or understand, such as the whys of the circumstances. Please build my faith and trust to know that you will work all things out for my good. I love you and it is in Jesusname that I pray……AMEN

Genesis 27-28, Luke 8, Psalms 4

Have you ever made a decision, that you really didn’t think about at the time, but it ended up changing your world forever? To me, this is what Rebekah and Jacob were doing.  It is kind of the same scenario that Abraham and Sarah went through.  God told Rebekah that Jacob would be greater than Esau.  But, Rebekah “listened” and said to herself, ‘I need to step in and help God’.  How many times have I tried to help God?  Why is the flesh my first go to? Why was it for Sarah and Rebekah?

And so, the scheming began.  Rebekah and Jacob covered all the bases: the food, the clothes, the hairy arms and neck, all but the voice. 

When you become disabled in one area, your other senses kick in and work double time.  Isaac was blind.  He heard Jacob’s voice.  He thought the food had arrived way too quickly. He should have trusted his instincts, but he didn’t.  He felt the hairy arms, smelled the clothes of Esau, and tasted the delicious food.  After all, 3 things were right out of 5. But in school that grade would be 60% or a D.  It just shows me that my flesh can lead me astray very easily. It makes me believe what I want to believe, even if it is a lie. This applies to both the deceived and the deceiver.

And so, Isaac blessed Jacob:

                “See, the smell of my son is the smell of a field that the Lord has blessed!

                May God give you of the dew of heaven and of the fatness of the earth and

                plenty of grain and wine.

                Let peoples serve you, and nations bow down to you.

                Be lord over your brothers, and may your mother’s sons bow down to you.

                Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be everyone who blesses you!” (Genesis 27:27-29 ESV)

I always enjoy it when I get my way! But the enjoyment is usually short lived when afterwards I think about how I went about it.  Will Jacob and Rebekah regret their actions?

Then Esau came into his father’s room with his stew.  And within a short time, Isaac realizes he was duped. Isaac trembled violently and Esau cried out with an exceedingly great and bitter cry.  I am sure it was heard by the deceivers.  How did it make them feel? Horrible?

Esau conveniently forgets that he sold his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of stew.  Does that make Isaac and Esau the deceivers?  Does the blessing belong to the one with the birthright?  I don’t know, but it is possible. Was Isaac going to curse Jacob? We will never know for sure. 

Isaac said to Esau:

                “Behold, away from the fatness of the earth shall your dwelling be,

                and away from the dew of heaven on high.

                By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother;

                but when you grow restless you shall break his yoke from your neck.”

                (Genesis 27:39-40 ESV)

Esau now hated Jacob and plotted to kill him. His words got back to Rebekah, so Jacob had to leave.

Have you ever been angry, but later realized it was something not worth being angry over?  That was what Rebekah hoped for.  She was sending Jacob, her favorite, away, until Esau’s anger subsided. 

Well evidently Isaac loved his wife so much, he believed her words.  Isaac fell for another of her schemes, proclaiming Jacob needs a wife from my tribe, not these Hittite women or Canannite women. 

What would have happened if she just communicated with Isaac and explained the situation? Perhaps Isaac could have reasoned with Esau and peace would be restored within the family. Perhaps, but again, we will never know.

Then Isaac called Jacob and blessed him and directed him, “You must not take a wife from the Canaanite women.  Arise, go to Paddan-aram to the house of Bethuel your mother’s father, and take as your wife from there one of the daughters of Laban your mother’s brother.  God Almighty bless and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may become a company of peoples.  May he give the blessing of Abraham to you and to your offspring with you, that you may take possession of the land of your sojournings that God gave to Abraham!” thus Isaac sent Jacob away. And he went to Padan-aram, to Laban the son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob’s and Esau’s mother.  (Genesis 28: 1-5 ESV)

Nothing good ever begins with a lie. Once a lie is started, it just balloons. You have to keep making more to cover the previous one.  But God was with Jacob, in spite of his deceptions. (Genesis 28:12-17)  

Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God, and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar shall be God’s house.  And of all that you give me I will give a full tenth go you.” (Genesis 28:20-22 ESV)

Sometimes God takes me on a journey, away from all distractions, out of my comfort zone to lead me to Himself.  Sometimes that is the only way for Him to make me be still and know that He is God!

In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalms 4:8 ESV)

Father God, there are secrets of the kingdom of God. Those who don’t have an ear bent towards You cannot understand them.  I must hide Your word in my heart, and I must shine to those around me.  Help my faith to be strong in You. Help me to sit at Your feet and soak in Your teaching, and when the time is right, help me to proclaim ALL that You have done for me! (Luke 8) I am so thankful for Your presence in my life, and I pray for my faith and trust in You to be strengthened day by day, until I see you face to face. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
