Focus Chapters:

  • Numbers 7

Standout Verse(s):

Numbers 7:89 NLT

Whenever Moses went into the Tabernacle to speak with the Lord, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—that rests on the Ark of the Covenant. The Lord spoke to him from there.

Observation (s):

  1. Moses could only hear God’s voice from above the place of atonement.

Application:

As a child, I read stories of parents who expected their children to wash up before dinner. The child was not allowed to sit at the table and commune with his/her parents until he/she was clean. God takes a similar approach with us. He only spoke to Moses from above the place of atonement and Moses could only hear God’s voice from above that same spot. The place of atonement acted as a communication barrier opener! God spoke but Moses could not hear Him from anywhere else.

Atonement refers to the action of making amends for a sin, wrong or injury. We cannot come to the table dirty and expect to be served. We have to make amends by going to the place where atonement can be made, where we are cleansed. Only by a spiritual covering of our sins are we granted access to the dinner table and hearing clearly when God speaks.

How do you approach the mercy throne? Do you try to sit at the dinner table and commune with God with no concern for your spiritual appearance? This may be the reason why you are unable to hear from God. Try approaching God, following a cleansing at the place of atonement, the communication barrier opener.

I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
