Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Exodus 13:1 - 14:4)
“God Leads The Way Home”
Text: Exodus 13:21
“And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to go by day and night.”
“God Leads The Way Home,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
What an awesome display of God’s presence this was for Israel; the physical pillar of cloud in the daytime, shielding them from the scorching heat of the wilderness desert, and the physical pillar of fire in the night, to give them light through the wilderness…… all the way home to God’s land of Promise for them.
“He spread a cloud for a covering,
And fire to give light in the night.”(Psa.105:39)
The LORD went before Israel to protect them and assure them that God Himself was Leading them through all the perils and snares of their wilderness journey “all the way home to Canaan.” They did not always realize this but God was there in spite of their unbelief and rebellion. He never took away the pillar of cloud and the pillar of fire in the wilderness.
God leads you and I too as His Warriors, not as a pillar of cloud and a pillar of fire but with His Word.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.”(Psa.119:105).
Jesus tells you and I:
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)
Jesus IS the Way so He Leads us IN the Way.
We don’t walk through our journey by sight, but by Faith, Trust, and Obedience to God’s Word.
Our Commander Jesus Christ Leads You and I with His Word through the wilderness of this present world all the way home to heaven. I love that old song:
“All the way my Savior leads me
What have I to ask beside?
Can I doubt His faithful mercies?
Who through life has been my guide
Heavenly peace, divinest comfort
Ere by faith in Him to dwell
For I know whate'er fall me
Jesus doeth all things well”
Oh Hallelujah Warrior! Know this! Your Commander and King IS with you in the days and nights of trial and suffering as your “sun” of Hope at night and your “shield” of Faith in the day; ready to give His Grace and Glory to you along the way home, as you walk with Him in Faith, Trust, and Obedience to His Word.
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
The LORD will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold
From those who walk uprightly.
O LORD of hosts,
Blessed is the man who trusts in You!” (Psa.84:11,12).
God Leads The Way Home! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
