“The LORD replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.””
Exodus 33:14 NLT
I love reading of Moses and all that the Lord did in him and through him. What a legacy he left behind, the things he saw and experienced are really things I can only covet and imagine. He experienced the presence of God in ways I can’t even fathom. He was the one who was trusted with the Law and to be a mouthpiece for God to his people. There are just so many things that I can only read about and imagine what it must have been like. But there’s one thing we have in common.
I read this verse and it just hit me, I do have something Moses had, and it’s this promise. It wasn’t given to me in the same way but I got it in what I consider to be a much more precious way. Through the blood of Jesus I received this promise. When he died on that cross, It allowed me to insert my name in this verse. The Lord offered me a personal relationship. He told me he would go to the ends of the earth with me, even beyond the grave. He said he would be my personal savior and walk with me throughout my life. He said I could come to him and he would give me rest. He said when I accepted him, everything would be fine for me. He didn’t say everything would work out exactly how I want, and that I wouldn’t go through difficulties, or that things wouldn’t get ugly in my life sometimes. He did say that I would be fine though, as long as he was walking with me.
This promise is one that I cherish. I can’t think about the Lord and not thank him. I can’t look at what he’s done and not worship him. I can’t exist in his presence and not be moved. I can’t know him and not love him. I can’t walk with him and not know things are going to be fine no matter what it may look like. I find him to be so much more faithful each day than the day before. I experience this promise every single day. Much like Moses I don’t walk worthy of this promise every day, but I serve a patient and forgiving God. One who will go to great lengths to make sure I learn what I need to and grow in him as I need to. Even when I don’t walk worthy sometimes, he is always worthy.
I hope you know this promise to be true in your life. Yes it costs something in this life to accept this promise, but as Paul once said, I count all that I’ve lost or given up in this life as dung in comparison to knowing Jesus. Know him, love him, accept this promise and insert your name. It’ll be the best decision you’ve ever made.
