Message: In Exodus 34 Moses went back up to the mountain to have the
ten commandments remade after he destroyed them. God allowed Moses to
experience the frustration with the people that he himself felt when they were
down there worshipping a golden calf. After Moses had begged God to reconsider
in destroying them, he had felt the same anger and frustration come over him
and had destroyed the ten commandments. Now he was with God again and God was
calming him. What really caught my attention here is that now Moses was begging
God to travel with them!
Command: Don’t walk it out alone!
Promise: God will walk it our with us if we
ask him to
Warning: Isolation brings fear. Don’t go it
Application: As I read through this I thought of
all the times I was dreading what I had to walk though and asking God to walk
through it with me. I’ve told God that I can handle whatever he requires of me
as long as I know he is with me. This couldn’t be more true as I face new
things even right now. I don’t have to know the plan ahead. I just need to know
that God is walking through it with me and guiding each step of the way. Even
if the plan is that I do nothing, I have peace because God is with me and when
it’s time to move he will tell me.
