24 Then he said to Moses, “Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and worship from afar. 2 Moses alone shall come near to the Lord, but the others shall not come near, and the people shall not come up with him.”
3 Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the rules.[a] And all the people answered with one voice and said, “All the words that the Lord has spoken we will do.” 4 And Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord. He rose early in the morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel. 5 And he sent young men of the people of Israel, who offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen to the Lord. 6 And Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins, and half of the blood he threw against the altar. 7 Then he took the Book of the Covenant and read it in the hearing of the people. And they said, “All that the Lord has spoken we will do, and we will be obedient.” 8 And Moses took the blood and threw it on the people and said, “Behold the blood of the covenant that the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words.”
I have to say after reading these scriptures how thankful I am that I am washed in the blood of Jesus Christ. I have an intercessor for me that has given me eternal life. What a gift!
As I read this passage, I marvel at how brave Moses has become. I remember reading how he expressed his concerns about his speech and his ability to speak in front of the people. He has become so bold in his deliverance of God’s word.
How has God found me?
Am I bold or am I timid when I have a chance to speak Biblical truth? How I want to be found bold and blessed to be brave.
How willing are you to speak truth with boldness?
Pray today that God will bless you with opportunities daily, that you will be able to recognize the opportunities and that you will let go of all timidity and speak truth.
This is a life-or-death situation for many, whether they realize it or not. Don’t be found lacking.
Heavenly Father, help me be a bold witness of what You have done in my life. Not just the miracles of healing Doug of cancer, finding a liver for Melissa when it seemed there was no time, or healing Robert of kidney cancer and stumping the doctors or any of the earthly things that we praise You for, but for being there day in and day out to walk with me, comfort me, guide me, and on the difficult days, carry me. Thank You for being the God that is worthy of praise and worthy of serving. There is no other like You and I am amazed at how many choose to turn away from the One that can radically change their life and choose to follow the enemy into darkness. Thank You, Father, for giving me the opportunity to grow up hearing about You and knowing who You are. I know I had an advantage over many others, and I don’t take that lightly. I praise You for all You do and for Your grace, mercy, and love beyond measure.
In Jesus’ name.
