While trying to go to sleep tonight I said to my Husband I feel like writing. I want to write. I have many ideas on what to write but I need to write down the topics and do some research. Well as I was thinking I thought about Incense.
Incense according to Webster’s Dictionary is a material used to produce a fragrant odor when burned
Exodus 30:34 says God spoke to Moses: “Take fragrant spices—gum resin, onycha, galbanum—and add pure frankincense. Mix the spices in equal proportions to make an aromatic incense, the art of a perfumer, salted and pure—holy. Now crush some of it into powder and place some of it before The Testimony in the Tent of Meeting where I will meet with you; it will be for you the holiest of holy places. When you make this incense, you are not to copy the mixture for your own use. It’s holy to God; keep it that way. Whoever copies it for personal use will be excommunicated
As we look at this passage of scripture we see that God is having a conversation with Moses. The Lord is telling Moses how to make the incense with the ingredients listed, but he told Moses not to copy it for personal use. It is Holy to God, keep it that way.
I think about incense in our walk with God. In order for there to be a sweet smelling fragrance we need to have the Proper ingredients in our lives. The Proper ingredients are Daily Bible Reading, Prayer, Sometimes fasting, being around positive people, being accountable to another person.
We need to keep these ingredients because they are Pleasing to God we need to keep it that way.
We need to get rid of all the ungodly ingredients that are in our lives because they are not Holy to God and we need to be a sweet smelling fragrance to the Lord that is Holy to God.
Today’s Prayer: Lord Jesus please help us get rid of everything that is ungodly in our lives. We want to be a sweet smelling fragrance that is Holy and expectable to you.
