Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Test Of Delay”
Text: Exodus 32:1
“Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, “Come, make us gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”
“The Test of Delay,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God in His Wisdom is Always Working in the performance of His Promises; yet because we don’t see His Working we think He is “delaying,” to perform His Promise. It’s this “delay,” that is a Test designed to prove our Love, Faith, and Trust in God and His Great Faithfulness to Perform What He Has Promised.
The people had heard God speak audibly from the mountain where they were camped - and were terrified and promised to obey God. Yet now after 40 days they forgot and were quick to return to their past lawless idolatry; because of this “appearance of delay.”
They couldn’t see God working with Moses and speaking and writing the Commandments on the stone tablets.
Aaron and his sons had just been consecrated and anointed by God as His Priests to “serve God and the People of God.” Instead of serving God and rebuking and “restraining,” the people from sin; Aaron yielded to the “public opinion” of the people!
Listen up Warrior! You and I can take a lesson from this event. What appears to be “a delay” to us is a Test designed to Prove our Love, Faith, and Trust in our Commander Jesus Christ! He is ALWAYS Praying, Working, and Fighting for you and I; even though we don’t see this!
Our Love for Him GROWS as we wait on Him.
Our Faith in Him and His Faithfulness to Perform What He Has Promised GROWS as we wait on Him.
Our Trust in Him and His All Sufficient Grace to Care for us, Provide for us, Protect us, and Rest upon us GROWS as we wait on Him.
Aaaaaah Yes, waiting on Him draws you and I deeper in Love, Faith, and Trust in Him!
Standfast Warrior in your Service to God and His People! Do not allow “the Public Opinion of People,” to compromise your Love, Faith, and Trust in God! Paul charged Timothy, and you and I today as God’s Warriors:
“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;
and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” (2Tim.4:2-5)
Let you and I take heed to King David’s Declaration of Faith:
“Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!” (Psa. 27:14).
Let the Test of Delay Prove and Grow your Love, Faith, and Trust in Your Commander and King Jesus Christ! Ooooh Rah!
