Today's Reading: Exodus 15

Please read Exodus 15 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from my Devotion on Fire blog:

You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.

百 姓 就 向 摩 西 發 怨 言 , 說 : 我 們 喝 甚 麼 呢 ?
 摩 西 呼 求 耶 和 華 , 耶 和 華 指 示 他 一 棵 樹 。 他 把 樹 丟 在 水 裡 , 水 就 變 甜 了 。 耶 和 華 在 那 裡 為 他 們 定 了 律 例 、 典 章 , 在 那 裡 試 驗 他 們 ;

                                                             出 埃 及 記 15 :24-25

And the people grumbled against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” And he cried to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a log, and he threw it into the water, and the water became sweet.
There the Lord made for them a statute and a rule, and there he tested them, 
                                                              Exodus 15:24-25

    What I got today from Jesus is: 1st grumbling.1st law. 1st test.

    What I got from Jesus is a sad situation showing human weaknesses. Right after the big victory, a beautiful song of Moses and Miriam, then, three days after, the Israelites started their grumblings and it went on and on for the coming forty years!

    Read carefully verse 25. God intervened right away and their bitterness turned into sweetness. Then, it says, God made a decree and a law for them. What is that law. We do not know. But if you read verse 26 carefully, you might know that it should be something for them to obey. That's the 1st test for them. If they obey, they pass the test. If they don't, they fail. Simple!

    Have you grumbled to the Lord recently? Are you a listen and obey disciple of Jesus? What is your test recently?  

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be a truly listen and obey disciple of you and never grumble to hurt you.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
