Word for you
To walk with the Lord
Leviticus, 24:1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2. “Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil from beaten olives for the lamp, that a light may be kept burning regularly. 3. Outside the veil of the testimony, in the tent of meeting, Aaron shall arrange it from evening to morning before the Lord regularly. It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations.
At that time when this (Leviticus) is written, they needed oil into the oil lamp, and they produced it of the olives growing in olive trees. They had to crush the olives and that fine oil which came after the crushing operation, was ready and pure so that you could put it into the lamp. After being set on fire it burnt purely or almost purely. There was no smoke. If the process is not effective enough, the oil is not pure and the flame causes also smoke.
This crushing the olive into oil is a picture of us, you and me. If and when we want to serve the Lord, we must go through the cleaning process. We have to surrender to the Lord ja trust in that He will cleanse us for His use. Sometimes it is painful, because we need to put away things, that cause smoke. Can we say that we are seeking the will of the Lord in everything or do we seek healing, spouse or some other success for our life for instance of a witchdoctor.
We need to seek the face of God and His righteousness continuously, so according God`s Word He will give us everything else. For it´s said in Bible that God´s is Word water. That Word that we have read, starts to fill us and we will become overflowing. If we read the Word of God, Bible, it is like fog that moistens us little by little and at some point we notice that we are totally wet. We have to let the Word of God flow to other people from us wherever we walk and stay.
