look only to God ☀️

When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said, “Come, make us gods who will go before us. As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.” (Exodus 32:1 NIV)
Each of us have times in our lives where we must decide whose side we are on – The Israelites faced this choice shortly after being delivered from Egypt. They had miraculously crossed the Red Sea on dry ground & arrived at Mount Horeb. Moses has already made one trip up to the mountain and came back with the Ten Commandments. When Moses went back up many days passed without word from him and soon the people started to get anxious. Instead of trusting God during this time of waiting the people lost sight of who they were waiting for. Aaron (Moses brother) instead of being a strong spiritual leader caved and gave the people the idol they asked for when he should have pointed them back to God.
We sometimes want to take our eyes off of God during a time of waiting. in our impatience we attempt to find answers on our own but this is preventing God from the work He wants to do in our life!
*I pray that through times of waiting that I would let God work in me. That I would look to Him and remain faithful. I pray that I would always ask God to help me look only to Him as I patiently wait for His will in my life. 🌸
