And the LORD spoke to Moses . . .

The phrase, “And the Lord spoke to Moses . . .” is repeated often in the book of Leviticus. That phrase introduces each new revelation from God to the nation of Israel.

There have been times in my life when I have wished that God would just send a prophet to me to tell me what I should do. Perhaps all of us struggle with questions about God’s will for our lives and how we go about making what seem at the time to be momentous decisions.

But even as I read those words in Leviticus, I am reminded that God has sent prophets to me, many of them, to speak into my life. All their words are found in the Bible at my fingertips. I have the words that God gave to Moses so I can be led in the same way that Israel was lead.

It seems to me that if I treat my neighbors the way that Scripture Commands me and if I respond to God in love the way that Scripture commands me, everything else will fall into line. Jesus told us this in Matthew 22:

He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important command. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.”

Matthew 22:37–40, CSB

Maybe the best way to proceed is to trust that if I am faithful to God in the small things, he will take care of the large things.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5–6, CSB
