Exodus 34
Vrs. 10
God wanted to be in the midst of Isreal, and to be in control, so He could do wonders in their lives.
If we obey His commandments, He will get rid of the sin in our lives, and do great wonders in our lives. He wants to be in the midst of us, too.
 
1.Who is number one in your life? verses 12-17
We can't let the world run our lives, or their gods become our gods. God must be number one in our lives.
God is a very jealous God. When we allow idols in our lives, God calls it “whoredom” and considers it a very serious sin. We must put Him first in everything we do.
 
2. Sanctify - verses 18-20
We must seperate and sanctify ourselves fully unto God. This ties in with God being the number one “person” in our lives.
We should be letting Him be in full control of everything. We can’t allow the world to determine what we do, or how we dress. Our hair styles, clothing styles, and all that we do, and all that we eat, shouldn’t it be pleasing to God? (Isn’t it His temple that we are putting the food in? His temple that we are clothing? His temple that we are taking places? Our hair part of His temple?)
 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.”
 
Ask God what He wants you to wear, and look like. Do a Bible study. Can it really hurt you to find out?
 
3. Set apart vrs. 21
Set apart a day for the Lord, and rest in Him.
There is a reason that God wanted the children of Israel to rest on the Sabbath day. It was never meant to be a “Holier than thou” day, like the Pharisees made it. God knew that you can’t go for seven days a week. You will burn out. I had a friend tell me, one time, that “God doesn’t expect us to be superwomen!” She is very right. We think, in this day and age, that we are supposed to push ourselves to the umpteenth degree. God said for them to work six days a week, and then rest one day. It gives our bodies a chance to rest up from the crazy week, before you go back into the crazy week ahead of you.
This doesn’t mean to be lazy on the day of rest, but allow your body a chance to rest. Try to get away for a little bit of time, and spend some alone time with the Lord. You should be spending special time with the Lord each day, but spend a bit of extra special time with Him on the day of rest. How else can you grow, if you don’t come away and spend time with Him?
Jn 15:4 “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.”
God wants us to spend time with Him. He implores us to spend time with Him.
Ezekiel 3:22 “And the hand of the Lord was there upon me; and He said unto me, Arise, go forth unto the plain, and I will there talk with thee.”

Ex 34:29-35 When we spend time with the Lord, People will see. Ever notice how you can tell when someone has spent time with God? We knew a Pastor, he is now always with God, as he is in Heaven, but he would go off to a cabin for a week, and spend time just him and God. When he would come back, he was so hot for God. There was a change in him, every time he went off just him and God. There is a difference.
 

When we do these things, He can work wonders in our lives.
