Exodus 23:20 (NIV) 20 “See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.”
As God’s children, He does not ‘send’ us anywhere without preparing the way. He will not leave us, forsake us, or allow us to be ill-prepared for any assignment He gives us. He has given His angels charge over us and if we allow Him – He will guide every step we take.
That does not mean there will not be bumps in the road. I know that each of us has a testimony about some of the ‘bumps’ we have encountered. But this world is not our ‘heaven’ nor is it the place where we need to put our trust and faith. Our eyes and our hearts should be firmly fixed on Jesus and our trust always placed in God. He is the one who sent His son to die for our sins so that we wouldn’t have to pay that price. He is the one who supplies ALL our needs. And He is the one preparing a place for us with Him in Heaven.
My prayer is that I am always in the place He wants me to be…that I seek after Jesus each day with all my heart, mind, soul and strength…that people around me know I have been in the presence of God. How about you?
