One of my favourite words from the Christmas season is the name - 'Immanuel' - and the reason for this is because of the powerful reminder that 'God is always with us.' However, in a slight variation of this word, we see another reminder of God's presence in Exodus 13 - it is the promise that God is guiding us on our journey of Faith.
...God is 'in front of the people'
...God is leading us
...God WILL direct our paths
...God is in the pillar of cloud and in the pillar of fire
...God uses two different (but clear) signs to lead us
All of this is done so that God can help his people get to their RIGHT destination - His chosen path and His chosen destination.
I have been challenged to put God in the right place as we begin 2019.
May you join me in doing so.
Living in Grace
