Numbers 10 & 11; Psalm 27; Mark 1

So I’m thinking lots of other peoples thoughts….

Much of our difficulty as seeking Christians stems from our unwillingness to take God as He is and adjust our lives accordingly. We insist upon trying to modify Him and bring Him nearer to our own image. -- A. W. Tozer

Things that make me go hmmmmmm.......Oswald Chambers:God's revelation of Himself to me is determined by my character, not by God's character."'Tis because I am mean, Thy ways so oft look mean to me’”

"He swiftly uncovers my tendency to use 'questioning' as a way to avert obeying." UPRISING

Obedience, pure and simple, opens up a pathway for the work of God. David Stevens

Some of it for ‘others’ and a lot of it for ME……So rather than thinking too much on anything again today going to just PRAY…..unless of course I ‘hear’ something else as I read….


Numbers 11: 21 But Moses said, "Here I am among six hundred thousand men on foot, and you say, 'I will give them meat to eat for a whole month!' 22 Would they have enough if flocks and herds were slaughtered for them? Would they have enough if all the fish in the sea were caught for them?"
23 The LORD answered Moses, "Is the LORD's arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you."

This exchange is ……..is.......I mean....Moses…Moses, ‘talks with God’ Moses….deliverer of God’s word to Pharoah (plagues) Moses....... questioning God…..and God ‘fire came out of Him’ GOD ....proves himself, doesn’t DO anything to Moses???…..….it just kind of takes my breath away the kind of God we’re dealing with……..an amazing powerful… uncontainable…unexplainable…. God…That’s where my thoughts and prayers NEED to be today….I get in the MOST trouble when I think I KNOW something……anything.... other than THAT for sure….
Psalm 27
Of David.
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
4 One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.
6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me;
at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.
7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD;be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!"
Your face, LORD, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger;
you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me,
O God my Savior.
10 Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, O LORD;lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.
13 I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

And then you read Mark 1 and……… 41 Filled with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" 42Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.
So gonna be praying today …seeking Him and His voice……. at least that's my desire right now.....
