while reading in Psalm 4:3- “But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him.” Being set apart for God involves certain rules…people cant simply choose to designate a thing as “set apart” in any way they want; things can only be set apart for God in the ways HE has ordained.
Imagine if we were to meet Moses- while walking….we come across (the place with the burning bush which was sacred ground) — in other words (“set-apart”) what would we think of the expression on his face, the ground in which he stood, the “VOICE” as it spoke? I think I would be laying on the ground when this miracle was over
other thoughts…the furnishings of the tabernacle that were anointed with oil and blood, which became “especially set-apart” tools of worship. ( this requires devotion to God )
Am I doing my best in being “set-apart” or simply just being “part of the setting” shaking off the dust from the world in which I travel —-this brings to my mind thinking as I daily preview what I have on my agenda for the week:
now most of the dates I have in writing- time, place, when, where, is documented all over my calendar….BUT the “WHAT” is the option I choose to do action wise, as each thing occurs keeping in the “mind of Christ” as to what I am capable of accomplishing through HIS-Strength. note to self—- this is not my strength (as I so often feel like I have been wondering in the wilderness at times?) Philippians 4:13
How OFTEN has He “carried” you/ how often has HE taken you out of the ” worlds-setting” to bring you back into being “set-apart” from the world.
