Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Living In The Sight of God”
Text: Judges 3:7
“So the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD. They forgot the LORD their God, and served the Baals and Asherahs.”
This Principle of “Living In The Sight of God,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Twice, in verses 7 and 12 these words are spoken: “…the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord.”
This grabbed my heart this morning as I chewed on these words. Yes, I know that God is Omnipresent (Always present everywhere at the same time) yet there are times that I’ve forgotten that. Times of Battle, Times of weariness, and Times of deep disappointment in myself and others….. yet even though I forget this Principle, I Am Still Living In The Sight of God, At All Times!
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.” (Psalm 91:1-2).
Oh how many times I’ve whispered this Truth to myself - and instantly remembered and rehearsed that God’s Presence Is With Me.
I’m sure this is what happened to Israel, as well as many of us at times; we can forget that our Life and Circumstances are being lived “in the Sight of the Lord,” all the time.
Knowing this Truth breaks our heart when we sin and disobey God - because we do this in the sight of God. This leads us to confession and repentance; and reminds you and I of our desperate need for God’s Grace and Mercy all the time!
Knowing this Truth stirs our heart with boldness and great confidence when we stand Stedfast for Righteousness on the Battlefield of Faith, Loving and Trusting in God Alone!
This Truth of Living In the Sight of God as a holy people made Israel Invincible, and it will make you and I Invincible too when we Love, Trust, and Obey Our Commander Jesus Christ.
Moses, Joshua, Caleb, Othniel, and Ehud practiced this and led Israel to victory.
Ehud said to Israel “Follow me, for the LORD has delivered your enemies the Moabites into your hand.” (v.28). By turning their Eyes and Heart back upon God Israel remembered they were in the Sight of God, and Trusted in Him Alone to Lead them to Victory! Ooooh Rah!
Listen up Warrior! You are Living In The Sight of God. Rehearse and Remember this Truth and It will keep you close to God and Victorious over all your spiritual enemies! Oooh Rah!
