Under protection

“ … Annul it … “ [Numbers 30.13]

In this portion of Scripture, the father was the sole authority in his own house. However, when we give the text a slightly different emphasis, but adhering closely to the original meaning, we are able to state that we are under the exclusive authority of our Father in His house.

Based upon our lack of wisdom, an emotional high or the work of the spirit of deception, we can often promise God or man what we cannot fulfil, and then we find that we are entangled by our words.

Just as their natural father could set his daughter’s free from their unwise vows while they were in his house, so, our Father in His house is also able to set us free from what we promised and are now unable to fulfil.

However, as well as His dwelling place being the house of liberation, it is also the place of deliberation and we need to make it our aim to please Him.

When we approach Him and ask to be set free, He may respond, “What caused you to say that”? Nine times out of ten, our answer may be, “I was aiming to please … “ He might then say, “Would you like My advice”?

When I was a student, I was in the book-room, which was out of bounds, at 02.00. As I was perusing some books, the Principal walked in. He looked at me and said, “My room 09.00”. I did not sleep much that night.

At the appointed time, I gently knocked on his door and entered, in more fear than faith. As I was standing alone before his large desk, he said, “I am not going to punish you. What you did was wrong but your heart was in the right place”.

This is what God is saying to us. [David McArdle]
