February 18 "Not The Hand of Man" Numbers 16-17

It's the work of heaven.
No man planted seeds; no man watered the grass; no man tended the flowers; no man grew anything.

"Aaron’s staff, which represented the tribe of Levi, had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds." Numbers 17:8

The only prince of the 12 tribes who budded, blossomed, and produced fruit.  Not at the hand of man.  Moses couldn't make a stick grow overnight with such a trichotomy.  They don't exist together on a branch.  And the Israelites saw that it was a miracle.  A calling that produced fruit that only God can do.  Are we patient in our own pursuits, knowing God is producing fruit in our endeavors for Him. It is the blessing of heaven.

Bishop Hall cultivated a thought about this verse:  "Fruitfulness is the best evidence of a divine call."

  1. 35 And fire came out from the Lord and consumed the 250 men who were offering the incense.

    The LORD has been called a consuming fire. These people witnessed that aspect of the LORD.

    My prayer today:
    LORD, I ask only that I might not sin against you.
