We are at the point of our study where God has brought the people out of Egypt and now wants what was best for them. In Exodus 20, Moses goes upon Mt. Sinai to receive the Ten Commandments. The first commandment is “You shall have no other gods before me” (v. 3). Unfortunately, history has told us that this commandment has been disobeyed and instead the worship of things of this world is attended to with greater attention.
The Ten Commandments set up priorities and creates order in our lives. They tell us to focus on God. They set standards that everyone should pay attention to for proper family and community relationships.
The world tells us that God is not real and it’s not worth our time to pray and have Him in our thoughts. But as I go through each day; taking walks and feeling the fresh breeze hitting my face and hearing the sounds of night that sooths my soul, I know the world is telling a lie and the ONE who created the breeze and unique music of the night is telling the truth.
This day with You Lord, let us focus more on You by spending more time reading, sharing, and being nourished by Your Word. Let us keep Sundays as a day of worship and a time of rest. Help us to daily be in awe of You and spend time with You; feeling confident that following Your way will lead to a very rewarding day. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
