In my mom’s new book Glimpses of God, she points out how often God gives a command and then says, I am the Lord. In essence, he’s affirming his authority and right to give a command. I thought about this as I work on obedience with my children. It’s helpful to reinforce the authority structure when I give a command.
Perhaps they need reminders just like the children of Israel.
I’m still going to bed late, which is why I’ll sign off and come again tomorrow. I’ll do my best to share this week what God is teaching me.
