The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.” Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place. How will anyone know that you look favorably on me—on me and on your people—if you don’t go with us? For your presence among us sets your people and me apart from all other people on the earth.” The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked, for I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.”Exodus 33:14-17 NLT
Have you ever received a word from God that required big faith? Like there is absolutely no way that you could accomplish it by yourself. Although it seems daunting to look at the task He’s set before you, there is something more important to keep in focus.
God’s presence sets you apart.
Today, I want to encourage you to embrace God’s favor! The very presence of God sets you apart from other people in this world. You were called by name and divinely gifted to accomplish His will. The challenge ahead may appear big, but you have God and He’s more powerful than your situation. He will provide for you and protect you as you move forward. This is a call for you to remember that God is with you.
Reflect – Where do you focus in challenging times? How can you remind yourself to remember the presence of God and how it sets you apart regardless of the situation?
