22 Then Aaron lifted his hands toward the people and blessed them. And having sacrificed the sin offering, the burnt offering and the fellowship offering, he stepped down.23 Moses and Aaron then went into the Tent of Meeting. When they came out, they blessed the people; and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people. 24 Fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the fat portions on the altar. And when all the people saw it, they shouted for joy and fell facedown. (New International Version)
In Leviticus 9:6 Moses said to the people, “When you have followed the Lord’s instructions, then his glory will appear to you.” Moses, Aaron, and the people then got work and completed the instructions. Soon after, the glory of the lord did appear.
Often we look for God’s glorious acts without concern for following his instructions. Do you serve God in the daily routines of life, or do you wait for him to do a mighty act? If you depend on his glorious acts, you may find yourself sidestepping your regular duty to obey.
