All week I have been reading and reflecting on Exodus 33. For me it is one of the important chapters in the Old Testament.
One section that really has stayed with me in verses 12-16. This is where Moses asks God to go with them on their journey. Earlier on God said He would not go because of the rebellious people (v3), but God agrees to go with Moses.
I like that Moses did not want to go if God did not go with them. It was a huge task that could only work if God was with them. Moses knew his inability to get the job done without God.
Moses knew it was the glory of God is what made them stand out from the surrounding nations. It was His power and presence that made the impossible possible.
As I have dwelt upon this chapter this week I have been reminded that we need to have the Moses attitude as Christians. We need to ask for God’s glory to go with us too. We need Him to make the impossible possible too.
Sometimes I wonder if we try and go it alone too much? I wonder if we would be better off waiting on God and asking for Him to go with us?
Just a thought.
