Positioned For God's Blessing

Positioned For God’s Blessing Thu, 25 Nov 2021 ‘And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me.”’ Exodus 33:21 God told Moses, ‘I will make all My goodness pass before you.’ (Exodus 33:19 NKJV) But in order to see that promise fulfilled, Moses had to be properly positioned, so God said, ‘Here is a place by Me.’ When you function in the place where God has assigned you, you can claim His promise: ‘I will make all My goodness pass before you.’ Why would the Prodigal Son leave his father’s house when everything he needed was there? Because: (1) He wanted his father’s blessing, but not his oversight. Jesus said, ‘Why do you call Me, “Lord, Lord,” and do not do what I say?’ (Luke 6:46 NIV) Why indeed! Peter Marshall, former chaplain to the US Senate, once prayed: ‘Lord, help us to apply what we applaud.’ (2) He took his father’s blessings for granted. God warned the Israelites: ‘Be careful that you do not forget the Lord, who brought you… out of the land of slavery.’ (Deuteronomy 6:12 NIV) When they crossed the river Jordan, He told them to take twelve stones, one for each tribe, and build a memorial. Why? To remind them of who they were, who He was, and His covenant with them. (3) He didn’t know the danger waiting for him. As a result, he ended up in a pigpen. The path that takes you away from God may begin with pleasure, but it always ends with pain. Ask those who have walked it, and they’ll tell you, ‘Don’t go there!’ Live by this Scripture: ‘He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.’ (Psalm 91:1 NKJV) Stay positioned for God’s blessing.
