simple words.

I am reading through the bible this year and right about now I am stumbling my way through Leviticus.  It’s a lot of do’s and don’t’s and I get lost in most of it to be honest. But what does catch my attention is the phrase that is repeated many times over:

“Fear your God. I am the Lord your God.”

God says it over and over. A constant reminder.

Just like in Leviticus, I can get lost in my day. I’m going about my list of things I want to get done. Trying to act in obedience all the while but I often find myself just going about my day in my own way. Then something happens, I’m caught off guard and I realize I have lost my focus. I have forgotten this…

I am the Lord your God.

Just like the Israelites I need the constant reminder of what is true. That truth to keep me grounded. To remind me of who I am pursuing above all else. To walk in obedience and humility.

So even though I am stumbling through Leviticus and getting lost in all the sacrifices and atonements I am clinging to those simple words…

I am the Lord your God.
