Thinking, praying, reading, studying the Bible – when we do these things, we are reflecting on the Word of God. To reflect is to contemplate and/or consider, and God wants us to deeply reflect on His Word so that we can better understand Him.
All Scriptures Used are NKJV, New King James Version
For Monday August 15, 2022:
“Now take Aaron your brother . . . that he may minister to Me as priest.” – Exodus 28:1.
And Aaron . . . made a molded calf. – Exodus 32:2, 4.
Do we not see how God’s purposes are thwarted and deferred by human perversity?… At the very time when God had determined upon the election and consecration of Aaron to the priesthood, Aaron was spending his time in molding and chiseling the golden calf.… We might have been crowned fifty years ago, but just as the coronation was about to take place we were discovered in the manufacture of an idol.… The Lord was just ready to make kings of us when we made fools of ourselves.
