Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Numbers 10:11 - 11:3)
“The Comfort of His Presence”
Text: Numbers 10:33
“So they departed from the mountain of the LORD on a journey of three days; and the ark of the covenant of the LORD went before them for the three days’ journey, to search out a resting place for them.”
Aaah, “The Comfort of His Presence,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
After more than a year at Mt Sinai learning the law of God and How To Worship Him, Israel sets our in and orderly March through the wilderness to the Promised Land of Canaan.
God’s Cloud will Lead them to places of Rest along the way. The rest may be for a day, a week, a month, or even a year; but it will always be a temporary rest - because The Wilderness is a Journey NOT a Destination! Ooooh Rah!
We the Cloud went before them they rose up and marched together, and when it rested above them they rested.
So this is for you and I Warrior!
God’s Presence is with us at all times; “....For He Himself has said ‘I will never leave nor forsake you.”(Heb.13:5).
You and I are on a ‘journey through the wilderness of this world on our way home to Heaven.’ Our journey is temporary but our Destination in Heaven is Permanent! Ooooh Rah!
And our Commander has places of rest for us all along the way of this journey; and He guides us to each one of them.
So let’s begin our journey each day with the prayer and declaration that Moses did every time the Cloud rose up before them:
“Rise up, O LORD!
Let Your enemies be scattered,
And let those who hate You flee before You.”
And when we end each day, after having Dinner with Jesus, we will pray and declare for our family and for the family of God:
“Return, O LORD,
To the many thousands of Israel.”
Warriors walk each day in the Presence of Yahweh! When He leads us to a place of rest - We Must Stop and Rest, even when we don’t want to! In sufferings, persecution, sickness, abuse, we can be tempted to run not rest. God has a place of Rest for us in these times, and the name of this place of Rest is GRACE and MERCY! Ooooh, this is the place where we get to really Know Our Commander the God of Battles and the Prince of Peace.
With His work of Grace and Mercy completed at the place of Rest, He rises up and leads us to yet another Battlefield of Faith, to Conquer our spiritual enemies Again; as we March by Faith under the Cloud of Our Commander The WayMaker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper, Light In The Darkness, My God, THAT IS WHO YOU ARE! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
