Aug. 7 Devotion: Think You Have Enough God?

Think You Have Enough God?

Exodus 32:19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

How many times have you heard this phrase? I’ve had enough! I’m sure it’s a phrase we’ve all uttered at some point or the other. It might’ve pertained to our kids getting on our nerves. Might have eaten too much somewhere and said it when someone asked if you wanted anything else to eat. However many times we might’ve said it before I don’t think we’d even consider saying it when it comes to the things of God. Yet there are times we seem to give off that aura. How many we see come to maybe 1 or 2 services a week? Have they enough God that they don’t need to come to each service? We had a camp meeting a week or so ago yet how many showed up the next Lords day looking forward to hearing from heaven and praying that God would extend it? We fail to dig deeper and desire to get closer at times as our attitude seems to be like we have it all figured out. We might not say it out loud yet our lives show that. Think a moment about Moses. Moses had spent days upon mount Sinai communing with God. Exodus 31:18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God. I wonder if any of us have even spent four days like this with God. After all this time Moses comes down and I’d think he would be on fire for God and nothing could get him down. We know though that his anger waxed hot as our text says and Moses cast the tables down that God had written with His own finger and brake them. So he spends forty days with the Lord and when he sees the people he gets angry and breaks the tablets. Why then could we possibly think we have ever had enough of God? This world can change our attitude in a moment. We could get bad news and change our outlook in an instant. Think about the account of the second time Moses went up. Exodus 34 tells us how Moses face shone as he came down. Exodus 34:29-30 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. [30] And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him. When we spend time with God it shows. It should show in our appearance, our actions, and our attitude. Same thing goes when we want to live like we’ve arrived. We wear more of the world on our face. Our actions line up more with the world, and our attitude reflects our time not spent with the Lord. If I was to ask you today if you’ve had enough God I believe everyone reading this would say no way. What do your actions say though? Do you live like you get enough God or do you know you need to still get closer to Him?

God bless you today! Bro. Josh Richardson
