CityLight Pastor Commentary:

“And Moses said to them, ‘Stand still, that I may hear what the Lord will command concerning you’” (Num 9:8). God has spoken to His prophets throughout all of human history, and He still speaks to His children today. His willingness to speak to us has never faltered; our desire to sit still and listen, however, has waned.

In today’s reading, we see God speaking to Moses firsthand. Moses was presented with a practical question: could men who were considered ‘defiled’ still celebrate the Passover? Although the subject matter might not be interesting to you, Moses’ reaction should be: he waited and listened for what God would say.

God has already written His Word in the Bible. There will, however, be many instances where we require real-time interpretation of His Word in our lives. It is in times like this that we should stand still and listen; when we do, God will speak to us just as He spoke to Moses!

Prayer:

“Father, help me to make time to stand still and hear what You have to say! Your Holy Spirit lives in me, and I can hear from You every day! You want to speak with me because I’m Your child!”
