When people are on the go in life, lots of things can change – new routines, perhaps no routines, unfamiliar surroundings, perhaps unable to have the things we are accustomed to having, new foods that could be good or different, going without the usual pleasantries we have had, perhaps freedom from some things, exposure to trying new things, exploring the new and exciting never done before, etc. Oh there can be lots of new experiences everyday for us wherever we are at in life for sure! Our Father is always doing new things beginning with the start of each new day. This is for sure – change is inevitable! I can get real comfortable in pleasant ruts, how about you?! However, it is when we step out to new adventures as Father leads us that we get to experience new things and well, as the saying goes, “try it, you might like it” or discover we don’t and that leads us along a path to discovering something new that Father can use for good, too!
Moses certainly understood that in his life and his ability to travel into new places in life was not in that he was an expert in doing so. He had never led a group of people out of Egypt before, but that was ok because God led him step by step. It is said of Moses “he kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the One who is invisible.” (Hebrews 11:27) In all of life when we are facing new things, it is ok if we do not know all the answers ourselves because we know the One who does! Jesus gives us peace to know that we continually have Him as our stable source of familiar that is our underlying refuge, shelter and victory in all times of newness, uncertainty and unfamiliarity. It is Jesus who is our solid rock, firm to stand on and unchanging in being all things we need to us as this song says here. Wherever we might be journeying for the first time in life, Father’s heart for us is this:
“…Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Now how fun to be able to travel with our Father and experience new things by His righteous right hand of favor upon us as we journey with Him as His kingdom family of faith! Let us anticipate that we will see the goodness of the Lord right where we are moment by moment as we keep looking to Him, for all the time He is good, working in us, thru us and all around us to deliver us to divine places even if we travel over some rough spots sometimes to get there! Wow! In those times when there was a lack or need, Moses saw God’s miracles big time and came out just fine, razzle dazzled by the Lord’s amazing abilities such as getting water from a rock and seeing food fall from heaven in perfect amounts for each day!
Oh let us celebrate that we are never alone and Father will see us through all things in heavenly ways in His right timing and in ways that will have us singing His praise all our days!! He who was worthy of praise yesterday, is today and will also be worthy of our praise for all our tomorrows! God is unchanging that way!
Oh all of that just makes me smile and be at such peace as this day closes out! I can be at peace knowing Father is going to see me through life in constant faithfulness with new divine adventures with ya’s in triumphant ways! I could get real excited right now about all of that, but I am winding down for rest so I will rest all of that anticipation and hope (having only powerful, positive, promised expectations) in Father’s hands for His timed giving of grace in it all as the time is right! YYEESS!!
I sooo love our Father who is sooo for us as His people of faith! Enjoy the sweet dreams and visions and surprises Father longs for you to have to see His glory that He longs to show to us and will give to us as we look to Him! His desires planted in our hearts are always the best forever!! Much love in the travels and rest stops as Father guides! My prayer in going to the ROCK (Jesus) for us is this:
“Father, please lift all not of you from us and fill us with your peace, for you are able to see us through all things as more than conquerors and are willing because you love us! Should our eyes drift from off You, please gently capture our attention and remind us You have us so we are continually resting in You at all times and in all things. In Jesus’s name, I give You thanks, love and praise for doing so lovingly always for us. Amen.”
Happy and smiling and thankful in His goodness towards us, sweet saints! I am thankful for you in my life, too!!
