Oh Lord, I pray that people will learn to follow You as we have seen in the times of the Bible. I love the example of the Hebrew people in Numbers, chapter 9, where they followed Your every command. If You told them to go a certain way, they went, even to the point of stopping and resting, did they rest. This is strict obedience that is missing in the times we are living in. I do know that in many places around the world there are people who are following You day in and day out. They read Your Words in the Bible, pray often, and also do as You say. This is my desire also. If I am not living up to Your standards, then rebuke me and help me know where I have gone astray. Lord, help make Your ways my ways. Lead me from temptation. I only desire to do Your will now as it is in heaven. Move within me, Holy Spirit. Open my mouth to speak. I love You, God. Amen.
Numbers 9:18,19 (KJV)
18 At the commandment of the Lord the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of the Lord they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.
19 And when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of Israel kept the charge of the Lord, and journeyed not.
It is important to follow God’s direction wherever we go. If the Lord says go, we go, if He says stop, we stop at His command.
