Stop, Look, Listen
by PamFord Davis
3/17/2017 / Devotionals
‘Stop, Look, Listen!’ at all railroad crossings.
That is good advice.
God offered more than advice. He gave deliverance. Were the Hebrews grateful? No, they complained.
I complain. What about me?
“And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.
And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.
And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.
Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live.
And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived (Numbers 21:4-9 KJV).”
The brass serpent was a symbol; it foreshadowed the promised Messiah. Today, we look back to both his crucifixion and resurrection.
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2a KJV).”
Am I listening? Can I hear his still small voice?
“And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him (Luke 9:35 KJV).”
