Bear The Names Of The Children…
Do we carry our children, all generations, with us into prayer? Should we carry all generations into our prayer time, the time we spend with God?
And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the holy place, for a memorial before the LORD continually. ~ Exodus 28:29 KJB
It sure sounds like it.
When we enter a space and are walking with the Lord, who enters, aside from God, Jesus Christ, Emmanuel, who enters that space with us? It has been said the whole Kingdom of God walks with us when we walk with God. What a visual, to have the whole Kingdom of God surround us as we go forward in our day. What if we carried that with us throughout the day – what could bring us harm or ill will or sorrow? Absolutely nothing nor any one person. Is this not what God is telling Aaron? Carry the whole Kingdom with you as you go into prayer?
In Exodus chapters 25 through 27 God goes into painstaking detail regarding the building of the tabernacle of Moses. God knows, specifically, what He wants, how He wants it done and in what material each detail is to be made. What if we looked at our life in this same manner, with this same eye for detail? What if we looked at each individual piece of our day and addressed it in prayer? What if we conducted our lives in this manner? Would we be in prayer the whole day long? Would we, in fact, be praying without ceasing? Would we be walking with God the whole day long?
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of God, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
