When things are going well, it can be easy to forget about God. It can appear that we don’t need God or have forgotten about all He has done for us. When Moses was in the wilderness with the Israelites, he refused to go anywhere without God being with them. He asked God to not send them anywhere unless He was going with them. He pointed out that the only way people would know they were God’s people was if God went with them.
We can decide to move with God. We can ask Him to fill our lives with His presence. We can live a life following God’s presence instead of trying to go our own way and do our own thing. It’s time to pray for presence.
Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here. How will anyone know that you are pleased with me and with your people unless you go with us? What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?” And the Lord said to Moses, “I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and I know you by name.” Exodus 33:15-17 (NIV)
Spend time today praying for God’s presence in your life. Decide that you will follow His path instead of going your own way.
