“Obey His Voice. Provoke Him Not”

Key Verse

“Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him” Exodus 23:21

Text — Exodus 23:20-23


The school prospectus clearly spelt out the rules and regulations of the school. Danny was given a copy and was advised by the Vice Principal (administration) to read through it with his parents. He was asked to sign the acceptance letter and return it to the school if they accept all the conditions for admission into his new school. But against the school regulations, Danny packed two pairs of his regular dresses along with the school uniform. The school authority had forbidden this so as to stop the students from sneaking out of the school. During a routine check, the clothes were found in the bottom of Danny’s portmanteau. He was punished for his disobedience to the school’s rules and regulations.

The Bible warns the children of Israel of the painful consequences of disobeying God’s Angel, His Messenger. God’s protection, provision and His presence will be with them as long as they continue to obey God. It was for Israel’s good to remain faithful to her God. Which one is better: obeying God’s word and enjoying His blessings or disobeying Him and receiving His punishment? God loves children who obey Him. If you want to enjoy His favour and mercy, obey God’s instructions in the Bible. Then you will be entitled to all His promised blessings.
