Topic: Standing Tall [DCLM Daily Manna 12 September 2018 Daily Devotional]
Text: Exodus 23:10-19 (KJV)
Key Verse: “And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth“ (Exodus 23:13).
After the children of Israel were miraculously brought out of Egypt by the awesome power of the Lord, they were divinely required to consecrate themselves as a special people unto Him. They were to be a holy generation and a peculiar people on earth. They were also to keep themselves holy and attend to divine commandments which were to guide them in their relationship with the Lord.
From the text, the Lord gave some elaborate instructions that must be observed as the norm. The people were to cultivate their lands, vineyards and oliveyards for themselves and eat of their produce for six years; but on the seventh, they were to leave them for the use of the poor and even the animals. They must be careful to be faithful to all the commandments of God. The Lord must be honoured and idolatry must never be associated with them.
Children of God are “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people” (1 Peter 2:9). They are carriers of the Lord’s light in a dark and perverse world and they are to show forth His praise in honouring Him in holiness, righteousness, worship and service.
As we walk with Him, He works in us and through us. Then, we become His vessels unto honour, a people prepared unto every good work. Our lives and services are acceptable unto Him only when we are fully obedient to His calling and faithful to His cause. The grace of God is always available to those who are truly committed to Him.
Thought For The Day: Precious vessels stand tall; they need no introduction.
