Day 10 of the Bible in 90 Days
Today’s Reading: Leviticus 26:27- Numbers 8:14
If you are reading through the Bible in 90 Days with us, keep it up! And remember, although parts of the Bible may feel a bit redundant, every bit is God-breathed and meant to be there. Try your best to just soak it all in and listen to what God shares with you.
On to my SOAP for the day…
Scripture: Numbers 4:49
Each was assigned his work and told what to carry.
Observation: This message is actually shared a few times as each camp is counted and given its instruction. Each group had its unique assignment and was told that assignment.
Application: Often I wonder just what my assignment is.
I want to do far more than I am capable of and should do so I tend to s-t-r-e-t-c-h myslef, trying to do more and more and more.
This verse is reminding me that I need to sit still and listen a bit more to hear just what my assignment is. And then follow THAT.
I cannot and should not try to do everything my heart longs for. I should listen to the Lord and follow His guidance alone. He is not going to lead me astray. My heart, however, when following the world, might.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for blessing me with so many wonderful gifts. Thank you for allowing me to reach out to others in Your name. Thank you for allowing me to be a wife, a mom, a daughter, sister and friend (although I often feel like I fail in those roles all too often). Please, Lord, help me listen to your instruction in all those areas. Keep me from working to please the world and taking on more than you intend. I want to hear YOUR instruction alone and have the courage to follow just that.
Thank you for this reminder to stop, listen and follow.
And thank you, Lord, for showing me recently how to set a few boundaries on my time so I can better serve you. And thank you for bringing help when I needed it and rest when I needed that, too. You are amazing!
You know my assignment. It is my honor and privilege to follow just that.
Thank you, Lord.
