Daily In The Word – Feb. 3rd

Date: 9 Feb 2018 Comments: 0

I am a bit behind on my daily bible study so I’m sorry but you’ll get to experience a few thoughts today instead of one. The first one is about waiting. I hate to wait on things and the longer I wait, the more anxious I become. However, this is not the way God wants us to be. In fact, in the time that Moses was bringing the people out of Egypt, they got tired of waiting for Moses to talk to God (I repeat, he was talking TO GOD, come on Israel!) so they got impatient and asked Aaron to make a golden calf. “When the people saw how long it was taking Moses to come back down the mountain, they gathered around Aaron. “Come on,” they said, “make us some gods who can lead us. We don’t know what happened to this fellow Moses, who brought us here from the land of Egypt.” (Exodus 32:1, NLT). When Aaron made the calf and they worshiped it, Moses had 3,000 people killed and God brought a plague upon the people. I think the key here is that God does things in his time and only his time. If we stress about how long it takes, we can bring terrible things upon ourselves by saying “If God’s not going to give me this or that, I’ll just do it myself.” I don’t expect God would bring a plague on your family because of this, but you could poison yourself into an unfulfilled life by not waiting on God.
