Parsha Beha’alotcha: Numbers 8:1-12:16, Zechariah 2:14-4:7

To our 9:00 am Shabbat Ark of Prayer and the Mishpacha within,


This week’s parsha is Beha’alotcha: Numbers 8:1-12:16, Zechariah 2:14-4:7, "when you step up."


The Levitical priests not only offered sacrifices and offerings to G-d but, they were to consider themselves “living sacrifices.” Their lives were to be given completely over to G-d. 


I know that a life founded on commitment to G-d contains all the essential ingredients for a life filled with contentment and purpose but at one point in my life I was starting to go the wrong direction with more and more discontentment and less and less peace.


In fact, it was the scriptural concept that my body was a Temple to the Ruach ha-kodesh, also taught in Romans 12:1-2, 1 Peter 2:5, that nagged at me for years to do something about my growing weight.


As the cloud moved, so did the Israelites. They had to stay alert, watching each day for G-d’s guidance. It was essential that the people trust G-d rather than to make their own plans. This object lesson in obedience is the description of what our day-by-day walk with G-d should look like … to trust in him completely and not in ourselves (Proverbs 35-6). 


But, I believe, that this is not the same thing as to not plan. My experience has been that G-d points the direction, sets principles for conduct, sets the timing and then often leaves the details to me within the boundaries He has set. So this means that I can set time and financial budgets and completion dates to implement what I understand I am to do but leave the results to Him.  What has been your experience?


The Israelites’ were entering new territory on their way to building new lives, but the immediate results were not encouraging. About two years after their salvation from Egypt, the Israelites started to complain. It went downhill from there. 


As they set out for the Promised Land, they were not willing to trust G-d to lead and protect them. Their weak faith and ingratitude showed up in their impatience with G-d and Moses, which ultimately resulted in 38 more years wandering and the previous Golden Calf incident. 


My experience has been that re-building myself from the inside out, involves uncharted territory. It takes great patience to let G-d guide me each step of the way. Often He puts others in my life to help me. 


Even though God’s presence was with Israel, evidenced by the cloud and Ark, Moses continually prayed for the well-being of his people. Moses knew the importance of intercessory prayer. Praying for others, especially for those who are in the process of some form of recovery, is often overlooked but is vital as part of that process. This is why TAJ’s core values are the 3 Ps: Prayer, Proclamation, and People.


As you are able, I hope you’ll pray for me and the Temple during your day and at the Temple at the 9:00 am Shabbat prayer session.


Blessings to you and yours.


Your brother in Yeshua in the TEVA TEFILAH,


Kurt
