Word-filled-Wednesday...His 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?" Exodus 33:15 & 16

Wow! When I read this yesterday and then again today it really made me stop and think. I do not want to go anywhere without the Presence of God. I do not want to teach a Bible study, sing a song, usher at church, unless God's presence goes with me.

I have to constantly seek out the Presence of God, invite Him into every area of my life. It is a scary thought going on in life and working for God but without His presence.

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power, His presence.

Moses asked, "What else will distinguish me and Your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?" What will let others know that we are different? What will let them know that we belong to God? His love, His Presence in our lives.

I pray this Wednesday, that you not take another step, unless you invite the Presence of the Holy God in.

I dare not serve God without God.

Lord, show me Your glory, let Your Presence be always with me. In Jesus name.

Have a great Word-filled-Wednesday

Vickie....I dare not serve God without God. With that thought, my heart is stricken with the thought if I do, then my motives are all wrong and off kilter.

Lord, we dare not serve You without You, we need You more than ever before. Amen.
