    Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, "How long shall I bear with this evil congregation that complain against me? I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel, which they complain against me. Tell them, 'As I live, says Yahweh, surely as you have spoken in my ears, so I will do to yo...

    But when they continued asking him, he looked up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw the first stone at her." Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground with his finger. They, when they heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning fro...

Face Down

  • Now the Philistines had taken God's ark, and they brought it from Ebenezer to Ashdod. The Philistines took God's ark, and brought it into the house of Dagon and set it by Dagon. When the people of Ashdod arose early on the next day, behold, Dagon had fallen on his face to the ground before Yahweh's ark. They took Dagon and set him in his place again. 1 Samuel 5:1'3 WEB.

    After the Philistines captured the ark of God and placed it in their temple, they came in the next morning and found their god dagon, the god of grain and fish, lying on his face before the ark. So they stood their idol back up, but the next morning when they came in, dagon was lying face down before the ark again, and this time he was broken in several pieces.

    The backslidden Israelites had intended to use God to fight their battles by bringing out the ark of the covenant, thinking that the army that carried the ark before them was invincible. Yet, it wasn't a magic box that made them victorious, but the presence of the Lord. That day the Israelites discovered God was with their enemy instead. He allowed the ark of the covenant to be captured by the Philistines.

    You can't use God to accomplish your will; we are to align with His. He is the Almighty God, and we are His children. Disciplined children listen to their parents. When God said, "You shall have no other gods before Me," He actually meant it. If you make something in your life more important than Him, it will crumble, and you'll be disappointed. So make the Lord the first priority in your life, and everything else will fall into place. If you build your life around something else, it will go face down.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for bringing me this far. Please guide me today, and help me make the right decisions. Help me get my life balanced. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6) ~ If you are in need of prayer, we and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
