“Knowing And Doing His Will”

Key Verse

“And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies” (Numbers 10:9).

TEXT — Numbers 10:1-10


There was a story about a Scottish Highlands widow whose only son sends a monthly letter. The old lady was bitter that her son in Australia did not care about her. One day, a visitor asked what her son had done for her. She replied, “He writes to me regularly, once a month, but only sends me a little picture with his letter.” That “little picture” was actually her monthly upkeep money, but her ignorance of the worth of the currency left her wallowing in poverty.

Equally, in our text, God made provisions for Israel, His chosen people that looked simple but had the potency to command His mighty intervention on their behalf. The Lord instructed them to make two silver trumpets that would be used for special occasions – to order their movement, to assemble the congregation, to encourage their armies in battle and on festive moments. These trumpets were to be handled only by the two priests (the sons of Aaron). However, the nation’s history showed that they often abandoned God’s provision and chased vanity until their enemies defeated them. But whenever they moved at God’s command, victory and success came their way.

Believers are privileged to have guiding and shielding instruments such as God’s word, the name of Jesus, His atoning blood and prayer, which, when utilised, open the door to great possibilities. The challenge is not whether there is enough to go around everyone but if His children will tap these resources in their hour of need.

To see God manifest His power on our behalf, we must obey His word, remain in faith, pray fervently and continue to sound the alarm of the gospel message to the unconverted. If we do these, no power will stand against us.

Thought for the day

Move at God’s pace and get to the right destination at the right time.
