In the book of Exodus the Lord told Moses to instruct the children of Israel to kill a lamb and put the blood on the doorpost so the destroyer would not come in. It was to ensure that the firstborn of the children of Israel were protected, Exodus 12; 13 “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt”.
Relationships are very important and the Lord moves through relationships. This is one reason amongst others why we need to honour one another and treat others well.
There is nothing wrong in preaching to multitudes at a time depending on the sphere of influence the Lord had given to each one of us. However we much value those that the Lord has placed around us.
Have you ever gone through a difficult time and wandered “what is going on?”. Does this sounds familiar?
Let’s have a look at scripture;
The Lord knew that Moses was the right person for the assignment, even though at the time Moses himself did not think so.
When the Lord called Moses, it was obvious that he did not want to do go. This is some of Moses responses when God spoke to him.
Let’s have a look at this scripture:
Exodus 2; 15

Many of us are aware of Abraham instructing his servant to go and find a wife for his son Isaac.
The servant had no mobile phone, no maps for direction.
All that Abraham's servant could do, was to position himself rightly and leave the rest to God.
What does it mean to be vigilant? Firstly lets have a look at the dictionary says.
The websters dictionary gives this definition:
Circumspect; attentive to discover and avoid danger, or to provide for safety.
God’s word has not changed, and His truth endures to all generations (Psalms 100; 5).
Now let’s have a look at scripture:
Romans 13; 3-5
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
