Who Is Aaron???

Moses is a familiar character particularly in the Old Testament but Aaron isn’t as known. And the truth is that Aaron was a massively significant partner to Moses to help him be effective & fulfill Moses’ divine destiny. God even assigned Aaron to be Moses’ mouthpiece for interacting w Pharaoh with the 10 Plague stuff. And Aaron was the first high priest in Israelite history, along w being a military support to Moses during a battle against the Amalakites.
Sometimes I think we mistake significance with fame or visibility. And even though Aaron messed up w the Golden Calif thing at Sinai, God didn’t shun Aaron & delete his participation in helping form Israel into a nation.
Let’s be sure that we stay engaged in community & a contributing partner no matter our shortfalls or visibility!

occupy

There’s an interesting demonstration that’s going on around the country called Occupy & its made me think of what occupies me. We are all occupied by lots of things that could include: our desires, accomplishments, love, insecurities, addictions, shortcomings, hopes, family & relationships and much more. But I was thinking about this whole idea of occupy today & it reminded me about a verse from the Bible that says that I’m the “temple” of God, in other words, that God occupies me.
This idea has made me think about a few ideas that could possibly make God’s residence in my life a more comfortable place for Him to occupy.
*I think it’s important to make space in our lives for God to express Himself freely & with a minimum of distortion or even assistance.
*I also think that it’s important for God to feel comfortable in my daily living with how I treat the people around me, including my family.
*There are also times & situations that happen every day where I make decisions – I want to make decisions that will make God comfortable to be around me, even if I’m uncomfortable (letting His preferences be my priority)

I want my relationship with God to be my “pre-occupation” ,)
