“When you enter the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your possession, and I put a spreading mold in a house in that land, the owner of the house must go and tell the priest, ‘I have seen something that looks like a defiling mold in my house.'” Leviticus 14:34-35
After God goes over many regulations about defilements of the body, He now looks at physical things. The first thing He looks at is the house. This is also after they enter into Canaan. If a person has a house and sees something that looks like mold, he is to go to the priest to have it examined. After a lot of investigation and testing, if it is destructive mold, the house is to be destroyed.
There are many Christians who believe God is only concerned about the physical and spiritual being of a person. It is often believed that God has no real concerns about the physical things that he may have.
With this regulation that God gives concerning a house, this belief is shown as false. God does care about everything in your life.
There have been parents who have discouraged children about praying for pets. A little child in faith prays that God will heal a sick or injured pet. Some parents think that is ridiculous or just very simple child characteristic. God, however, looks at it with great joy. It is complete trust in Him for everything.
Anything that is a concern to you, is a concern to God. The difference is how much of a concern. Some things that adults are concerned about is more of worry than concern. You are not to worry about anything, but bring it all to God in prayer.
If God is so concerned about mold in a house that He wrote laws concerning it, don’t you think that God is concerned about care for your clothes, car, house, and the list goes on forever?
Seek God about everything in your life. Allow Him to guide you in what needs to be done or not done. Do your best to maintain what God has blessed you with.
God only wants what is best for you.
I pray today that you will know God’s care for you; that you will know His great love for you; that you will trust God in every thing you have; and that God will guide you by His Holy Spirit in everything you have and do.
