My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest (Exodus 33:14).
As Israel moved into the Promised Land, God granted his assurance that he would not leave his children on their own. He would be with them on their journey, come what may. God knew that his people needed more than his blessing, more than his power.
They needed him.
As do I.
As do you.
What is your journey today, Beloved? Are you heading to far-off lands of adventure, or nearby streets of tedium? Are you frightened by the uncertainty of what today might hold, or are you frustrated at the drudgery of another monotonous day of the same-old-same-old? Either way, you can breathe deeply in the knowledge that the God who first conceived the very idea of you goes with you into this day. Nothing is going to surprise him. Nothing is going to confuse him.
He’s got your back.
And your front.
And everything in between.
Today, even today, you can enjoy the rest that comes from simply being in his presence.
I hope you do.
Go get ‘em.
