There is an account in the book of Exodus that most of us are familiar with.
Moses went up to the mount to meet with God. After a while, the people got impatient and decided to make idols and worship them. Why? Because Moses had delayed from coming down from the mount.
What is interesting about this account is that, the Lord had told Moses what the people were doing before he came down to the camp. The Lord told Moses to get down quickly for the people have turned out of the way. Moses then prayed for the people before leaving the mount with Joshua.
After all is said and done. Did you realise that there will be a new heaven and a new earth?
Matthew 24; 35 “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away”.
This is why as believers we need to focus on things of eternal value.
It’s amazing how many spiritual truths we can learn from life.
I am sure many of us have heard the Lord teach us things from events during our daily activity.
The centurion who was commended for his great faith learn't the principle of authority from his own job.
The process of purging does not always appear a pleasant experience as it can be hard on the flesh. However the Lord knows better, and knows what ingredients are required for us to so we can bear more fruit.

Have you ever made a decision based on the evidence presented before you? Have you carefully looked at what has been presented and said yes, this is okay? Have you made a decision based on natural factors? We all have and we all have made mistakes.
The phrase “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear” is found four times in the gospels, and the phrase “ He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” is found seven times in the book of Revelation.
What is the difference between “refuge” and “habitation”?
A refuge is a place where a person goes temporarily for relief from something, in most cases relief from some sort of harm. A habitation is a permanent dwelling place.
The bible speaks about milk and strong meat. Let’s have a look at this scripture:
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
These principles are based on dealing with people in general and not marriage relationships.
Let’s have a look at this scripture:
Proverbs 25; 15- 18
By long forbearing is a prince persuaded, and a soft tongue breaketh the bone.
Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it.
Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.
A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.
