Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Exod.33:1 - 34:3)
"Lost and Found"
"And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Breakfast this morning shows us the Drama of Life; Lost in sin and Found in Grace.
Israel chose an idol created by them instead of God Who created them. That choice of sin separated them from God's manifest presence, leaving them alone in the wilderness.
God had to leave because sin was in the camp. If He had stayed everyone would be dead - because 'sin is destroyed by the Holiness of God,' the same way darkness disappears when Light shows up!
How then, can Israel walk with this Holy And Almighty God? They needed 'God's Representative Moses, to plead for them to be forgiven (Exod.32:32). God's Presence in the form of the Pillar returns 'outside the camp' over a tent where Moses meets with Him. Everyone stands in the door of their tent and worships God as they see this miracle of God's Presence (Exod.33:7-10). Israel was Lost in sin and was Found in God's Mercy, because God heard and granted the prayer of Moses.
God's Presence would now go with them and He would give them Rest. Oooooh Rah!
How do we walk with our Commander and King today? He is our Perfect and Eternal High Priest Who continually prays for us who Love Him and Obey Him (Heb.7:25).
Listen up Warrior! We remember what it was like to be Lost in sin, outside of His Presence, wandering in the wilderness of life alone!
And we Know now, the thrill of being Found by His Grace and Mercy, enjoying His Presence every day - and settling our hearts in His Rest (Heb.4:9-10).
Yes, once we were Lost but Now we are Found today in His Grace, Mercy, and Love (Eph.2:11-13)
It's always a good time to tell your Lost and Found Story to someone who is still Lost......
Warrior at your side
