Because I Said So!

Exodus 3:13-15

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: “God said to Moses ‘I am who I am’; and he said ‘Thus you will say to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you’.”  Exodus 3:14

As a child, I frequently asked for reasoning – clarification, perhaps – behind my father’s commands to me.  Usually, in his wisdom, he shared with me the reason why he asked me to perform a task.  But on occasion, he would answer the question “Why?” with a simple “Because I said so!”

When the multitudes came to Christ and asked for explanation of his teaching and parables, he occasionally had no tolerance for their lack of perception and indicated that certain things were so because God said they were…and because He said so, all would be alright.  Our faith in his commands and our compliance with them would ensure it – because He said so!

PRAYER:  Lord, let us never question your authority.  Because you say it is so, let that be enough for us!  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
