S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
The Lord called to Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting.
After Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt’s bondage, whenever God wanted to communicate with him a Tent of Meeting was set up in the wilderness so Moses could speak with the Lord. Here, at the outset of the book of Leviticus, the Lord called Moses into that Tent in order to stipulate the specific rules of the newly formed priesthood and how they were to administrate the worship of God in the tabernacle.
Through the centuries, humanity has searched for God. Adam and Eve would speak with Him in the cool of the evening. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had Him speak openly to them. Moses first heard Him in a burning bush, but in time from a Tent of Meeting. God has never run from humans, it’s always been the other way around. After we run long enough, we then return to searching for God. Some have moved into strange heathen practices, others literally remain quiet for years hoping to communicate with Him in silence, when all along Jesus is just a prayer away. He told the prophet Jeremiah, “Call unto me and I will answer thee” (Jer. 33:3). That’s pretty plain and simple. The truth is, “The LORD Wants To Talk To YOU!”
I’m so full of thanks this AM, knowing that You want to talk with me. There are billions of people on this planet, but You want to talk to me. What’s really impressive is that all of us can have a separate conversation with You at the same time! How big and great You are! Amen
