Old Testament I

Exodus 39 

The Israelites did the work according to what God has commanded them as recorded in Exodus 39:42, and Moses blessed them. 

When we obey God's instruction, God is pleased with us and He blesses us.

In the church, when God gives instructions to the leaders on what the follower or members should do and they do it, it's not only God that is happy, the leaders are happy too.

40:16 Moses scrupulously obeyed every detail of God’s commands (see 7:10).

Since Israel’s welfare depended on the obedience of its leaders, Moses’ faithfulness allowed untold blessings to follow God’s wandering people. did . . . all that the Lord had commanded him: The repetition of this phrase emphasizes that Moses precisely obeyed God.

Old Testament II

Psalms 92 & 93 

Psalm 92, a psalm of descriptive praise (Ps. 113), celebrates the person and work of God in an exuberant way. The psalm also includes several wisdom themes. The title is unusual in that it attaches the designation “for the Sabbath day.”

The poem has four brief sections:

  1. an encouragement for the people to respond to God in praise and worship (vv. 1–4); 

  2. a celebration of the wisdom of God in bringing judgement on the wicked (vv. 5–9); 

  3. an acknowledgment of the mercy of God who has established the believer’s present life (vv. 10, 11);

  4. an anticipation of the mercy of God that will continue in the life to come (vv. 12–15).

Psalm 93, a royal psalm, focuses on the reign of God over the earth, making use of a distinctly Canaanite perspective. The psalmist denies Baal and shouts exuberantly in praise of God. God is King of the universe. What are humans compared to Him? God is King of heaven. What are the gods compared to Him? God is King of all. To whom may He be compared (Is. 40:25)? This focus is one of the most impressive ideas in the Bible.

The structure of Ps. 93 is as follows:

  1. the establishment of the reign of God as King of creation (vv. 1, 2);

  2. the celebration of the stability of God as King of creation (vv. 3. 4);

  3. the acknowledgment of the excellent nature of God (v. 5).

New Testament

Acts 23:12-35

23:12 And when it was day, some of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.

23:12–15 The willingness of the Jewish council to cooperate with the assassination plot against Paul shows how conscious they were of their weak case against him.


Others may attempt to prevent you from fulfilling God's plan, but remain steadfast and courageous. When God entrusts us with a mission, He has the capability to protect us from any obstacles or challenges that may arise. Rest assured that God is capable of delivering you, and He will deliver you from all such dangers.
