Numbers 30-31

Daily Devotional from Numbers 30--
Verse 2
If a man vows a vow to the LORD, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word.
God cares about our words and the actions that follow. This verse makes me think of Matthew 5:37, “Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.” When we put conditions on ourselves, we make it easier to break them.
There’ve been many times I’ve promised something that I couldn’t follow through with because I already had way too much on my plate. We must say “no” to some things so that we can say “yes” to other things. This week, as new opportunities come your way, invite the Holy Spirit into your decisions—and be confident in your “yes” or your “no.”
