Your motive is key
“Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls; From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies.” Numbers 1:2-3 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/num.1.2-3.kjv
What’s the source and intent of the action? In today’s Bible reading God asked Moses and Aaron to number the men of Isreal who are able to go to war. We know of another census in the Bible that went really badly. Same action different motives and source of instructions yielding different results. We must always think about our actions and the reason behind it to make sure they align with the Master planner of the universe. If he says go forward, like he did to the Isrealites in front of the Red Sea then take the step of faith. It doesn’t matter how many other people might fail at it, if it is at the instance of the Lord of Host then step forward in faith. Victory is assured!!!
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for being Lord over my life. Thank you for your instructions for life always. Lord at that word, I step out in faith knowing that victory is assured in you 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
