"6 If a person turns to mediums and necromancers, whoring after them, I will set my face against that person and will cut him off from among his people. 7 Consecrate yourselves, therefore, and be holy, for I am the Lord your God. 8 Keep my statutes and do them; I am the Lord who sanctifies you.” Leviticus 20:6-8
This week’s DBOs will be focusing on the third book in the Old Testament of the Bible, Leviticus. In the original Hebrew, Leviticus means “and He called.” Leviticus provides details on God’s instruction, His call, for living in obedience to Him. Leviticus details priestly duties and God’s instructions for the atonement of sin at that time, which was prior to the saving grace of Jesus who atoned for all of our sin, once, and for all who believe in Him.
God’s main theme in Leviticus is about dedicating yourself to the service and worship of God. Consulting God (answering God’s call) and not consulting man.
Referencing today’s anchor verses, I recently was in a room where a conversation took place with someone who had paid money to consult with a “medium”, just for “fun”. God is clear on who we are to consult with, as God is the source of all wisdom, not man. He sets His face against those who do not seek Him, but seek man for “wisdom”.
Daily Battle Order:
Living set-apart (holy), living purely, living sacrificially, living with a focus on God’s atonement for sin and His forgiveness of our sins, requires us to humble ourselves before Him, ask for His forgiveness, and seek Him, to answer His call, fully. He is The One who sanctifies us. Sanctification is the action that God takes to free us from our sins.
True warriors are set-apart. They answer the call. If we are truly warriors who are for the Lord, then being for the Lord requires us to answer His call, seek Him and His wisdom first (Matthew 6:33), and not man’s “wisdom”. Otherwise, we are warriors for ourselves, and what we are seeking will never be found and we will never be satisfied and we will never be sanctified (freed) from our sins. When faced with decisions this week, ask yourself this question: Are you seeking God’s wisdom, or man’s wisdom?
