Exodus 22: 16 - 24

How long has it been since you went to a meeting or anything else for that matter and all the people answered with one voice?  Eveyone was in agreement with what was presented and they all answered together the same way?  Have you ever been?

Today, in Exodus 24:3 it hit me that God gave them the 10 commandments the people were so awed, that they responded the same way...All the people answered with one voice, "We will do everything the LORD has commanded."  What a beautiful thought that people could agree, if even for a moment!

Everybody wants their voice heard and everybody wants their opinion heard and absolutely no one agrees on anything anymore, but they did in this moment!  God had their attention and He had them awed!  Wow!  We should still feel the same way awed and at attention to God's desires, but like these people that forget this moment in just a few chapters further we don't stay awed!

Perhaps one of the reasons is what is shared in Exodus 23:33.  We don't think of things that we put before God as other idols, but aren't they?  Anything we put before God is wrong.  The word tells us ...They must not live in your land, or they will cause you to sin against me.  If you serve their gods, you will be caught in the trap of idolatry."  Perhaps this is what happens to we (humans) we allow other things to go before God.  We do not give Him the awe and honor that only He deserves, so their is absolutely no way to respond in one voice!

Let's try something for a minute here...Shout Hallelujah!  No one sees you, (just God is watching you) so shout it!  Shout it again and give God all the glory!  Let's give God the number one spot in our life and perhaps, then we could all respond in one voice!

Sweet blessings,
