Good morning, a great inspirational devotional message for you today:
“If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”
In many ways, modern cultures are like the ancient society of Israel — everybody doing what is right in his or her own eyes. In pluralistic cultures where tolerance is the highest value, people hold dear the right to do whatever they want. And indeed, citizens have that right (up to a point). But it’s the consequences that arise over time that people don’t like.
When God brought the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt, the people agreed to “do what is right in His sight” (Exodus 15:26). That was the covenant agreement the people entered into, God promising to bless them for their willingness, in essence, to set aside what they thought was right and do what God said is right. However, their commitment didn’t last long (Judges 17:6; 21:25). By the time Solomon became king he identified as fools those who do what is right in their own eyes (Proverbs 12:15; 21:2).
Wise are the people who are willing to believe that what God says is right, is right for them.
Nothing is right for a Christian if it is not God’s will for him.
