I don’t know where you’re at in your life and relationship with God right now, but there’s encouragement and challenge in this story from Exodus for a many of us. Maybe you’re in that hard place of trying to figure out where you fit and belong in this world – you feel like an alien in a foreign land. Maybe you’ve tried stepping out the way you think you’re supposed to, but it seems to be backfiring. Maybe you’ve been going through a really hard time and you’re crying out to God, but he doesn’t seem to be listening. Maybe you see God doing something out of the corner of your eye and you’re thinking about going closer to take a look. Or maybe God has already told you what he’s calling you to do, but the fears and insecurities are holding you back from going.
I just want to encourage you to press in to God. Whatever you’re going through, know that God sees you, he hears you, he knows what you’re experiencing and he is present and moving and at work. Cry out to him, seek him, and trust that he is the Great I AM present with you.
