“If Your presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here.” – Exodus 33:15
In essence, Moses declared, “If I have to choose between Your presence and your blessing, I’ll take Your presence even if it’s a place of lack and hardship – over Your blessing in a great environment.” Moses targeted goal- his reward – was to know God intimately. #POWERFUL! (If you want a more understanding of what was taking place when Moses left Egypt, read the book of Exodus chapter 33)
I need the presence of God in my LIFE!
***Example: A woman can marry a man for his wealth. She may love him, but it can be for the wrong reasons. I don’t ever want to get to a point where I love God based on what he does.
What is your ultimate goal? What is your GPS set on? This chapter was interesting because mentions everything about staying focused on Christ! Timing, purpose, and having the right motive is so important. What should be your targeted goal?
Love must be in everything we do
Check your prayers
God is not blind to our inner motives
“Cleansing ourselves from the filth of the world’s system ensure our internal GPS will not e compromised and choose what’s good over what’s bet. To maintain the most beneficial GPS setting- toward a close relationship with God- it would seem the word holiness is the key factor.”
In order to make sure your internal GPS is set, you must 1) Have a relationship with God 2) Holiness 3) Cleansing of self and worldly flesh
My blog along does not justify how detailed and eye-opening this chapter was. The scriptures and examples used really blessed me. I’m going to do my best to keep this post short and straight to the point.
God bless you.
