I'm writing today so that we may be encouraged and note, inquire within and ask ourselves, "what we are presenting" ourselves to. What is infiltrating our minds, our bodies and causing even rational, logic to escape us.
Often fear and anxiety strap us to a point of immobility. We can't function. The Voice of the Lord seems far away. The simplicity of life becomes so complicated, poisoned by the noise of the world. The distractions we engage in pull us from his peace!
Are we filled with his Spirit? Are we inviting
his Good Presence to be in our midst?
Nadab and Abihu who were serving before the Lord took casually their service to the Holy One. Though they had instructions on how to minister before the Lord, something happened and they brought to the Lord an unauthorized fire.
