S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
They came as a group to oppose Moses and Aaron and said to them, “You have gone too far! The whole community is holy, every one of them, and the Lord is with them. Why then do you set yourselves above the Lord’s assembly?”
These were the words of three Israeli Levites who were jealous of Moses and Aaron. They said, “You have taken too much on yourselves and everyone in this house is holy.” Yet this was an attack on God’s own authority when these men attacked Moses and Aaron with their words and rebellious attitudes. 250 more Levites joined them. The Bible says God opened the earth and swallowed Korah, Dathan, and Abiram and their families, as well as the 250 who also stood with these three men. Before it was all over, 14,700 more rebels were done away with by the Lord.
Before these men allowed jealousy to take hold of their hearts and then spread their rebellious attitudes to others, they should have asked themselves one question. “Have You Split the Red Sea Lately?” In other words, the people of Israel were on their way out of bondage and into greatness and it was resting on the fact that God was using one man, Moses. Sometimes, if we’re not careful, we can find ourselves allowing our attitudes to go sideways against a man or woman of God. When that happens, any act of wickedness is lurching at our door. Never allow a seed of bitterness to get in. Don’t take that bait of satan. Besides, jealousy usually occurs when someone is accomplishing what we wish we had. So next time you feel that certain attitude coming on you, make sure you ask yourself, “Have You Split the Red Sea Lately?”
I’m happy to be included in Your plan. With Your help, I vow to applaud my leaders’ success and never question Your decision to choose them. Amen
