As I was with Moses, so I will be with thee

Is there any sweeter word today for the child of God than the text written above. It should empower us with courage and a greater conviction to make a stand for our God. It should help us to show our fellow man that we are different. We are a peculiar people chosen by God.

We may be facing distressing times. There may be great mountains ahead of us causing a great deal of anxiety or perhaps deep waters as we face an empty chair where once our loved one sat. Perhaps we are overcome with great loneliness, thinking that nobody cares about us. Perhaps our health is not what it once was and we fear a time in hospital or perhaps you are bracing yourself for the results of a scan or other such tests.

There are times when obstacles lie in our path. We build them up into mountains. We become discouraged, depressed and frightened. We would do anything rather than having to face it. If we could walk around it we would. If there was an easy path then we would gladly take it. ‘Hills at the presence of the Lord like wax doth melt away.’ Fear not my friend the Lord has a sure word for your trembling knees this day. ‘As I was with Moses, so I will be with thee.’

I was truly challenged by this question today:- ‘Do we wish more for His glory than we do for our own deliverance?’ This I have to confess left me speechless!

The child of God is not immune to pain, suffering or trial yet through all these things our Lord is with us each step of the way. Facing difficulties in our own strength will wear us out, however with Christ we can do all things.

Listen to what God is saying to your soul today, 'as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee.' Can there be any greater comfort?
