Word: So he cried out to the Lord, and the Lord showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them, and said, “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.” Exodus 15: 25, 26.
Thought: We go through many bitter situations in our lives, but when we look up on the Lord and keep up to His word, He will deliver us and turn the same situation to a sweet one. Even after seeing the hand of God work all through from Egypt, the Israelite people never looked up on the Lord nor followed His word, but rather in every time of trouble, they murmured on the other hand Moses looked up on the Lord and got the solution every single time. There are many such tests in our lives as well and many such bitter situations – what is our reaction to it? Our God is a healing God, though He allows the troubles in our lives, when we look up to Him and hear his voice and do what is correct in the sight of the Lord, He will look upon us and heal the situation – His hand is mighty and He will deliver us in accordance to His will. All we need to do is to hear His voice – sometimes it is very simple things to do like the tree which He requested Moses to cast into the waters or it might be to do or say sometimes or just keep quiet. Listen to His voice and do accordingly to it and we will find the situation being healed in our lives and we could change the test into a testimony.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to listen to your voice and do according to it in every way, that I will be able to see your might hand work in my life and I will be able to be a testimony for you. Amen.
