Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Speak To The Rock”
Text: Num. 20:8
“Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.”
“Speak to the Rock” is on our menu this Morning for Breakfast. The last time the people were at this Rock of Horeb, in Exod. 17:6, God stood on the Rock and told Moses to strike the Rock. This signified Jesus Christ the Chief Cornerstone, being smitten on the Cross, for our sin.
This time, again the people are striving with Moses and saying the same foolishness about God; and God commands Moses to “Speak To The Rock.” Moses however, speaks to the people in anger and then strikes the Rock twice. In his anger, Moses spoke foolishly and took the glory from God when he said “must ‘we’ bring water for you out of this rock?” (v. 10). Then he ‘struck’ the Rock twice, which signified falsely that the suffering of the cross was to be repeated again. This failure to obey God kept Moses out of the Promised Land.
Listen up Warrior! Don’t let your anger rule you. It will take you places that you don’t want to go! People will challenge you and even rebel against your leadership, as Israel did with Moses. Standfast Warrior, and Speak To The Rock in Prayer. Remember “Life and death are in the power of the tongue...” (Prov. 18:21)
So Speak Life! Declare the Word of God, sanctify the Lord in your heart and always be ready to give a reason for the Hope that is in you (1Pet.3:15).
We are living in perilous times of chaos today. Many people are full of fear, and fearful people speak foolishly like Israel did with Moses. Know the Word of your Commander Jesus, and Speak To The Rock of Your Salvation!
“You said that You are the Lord that heals me” Exod.15:26.
“You said, that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever,” Heb.13:8.
“You said, that You will never abandon me,” Heb.13:5
“You said, ‘Look to Me and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.” Isa.45:22.
Rest on the Rock and share your ‘reason’ for the Living Hope that You Rest Upon! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side!
