The Kitchen Table Day 35
Today’s Reading: Ps 2; Exodus 19:9-25; Heb 11:23-28
Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling Ps 2:11
Sometimes God asks us to do things that are strange to us, like serving with fear and rejoicing with trembling. Usually, fear and trembling take our minds off God rather than put our minds on Him. But this life is lived by faith, faith in who God is and what He can do. Faith is God serves Him as Almighty and rejoicing that we are on His side. Moses, the Bible says, lived for God and left the Pharaoh believing in His invisible presence and power more than the Pharaoh’s visible presence and pressure. See, man operates in terms of pressure, but God operates in terms of power. Man intimidates but God inspires us with His mighty passion, power and presence. Live in God’s inspiration, not man’s intimidation, and rejoice!
