A while back as I was reading through the book of Exodus, I was drawn to this conversation that Moses had with God. At God’s command, Moses was getting ready to lead the people of Israel into the promised land. Understandably, Moses was a little nervous and he made the following request:
“Let me know what your plans are, then I can obey and continue to please you…” Oh, how I can relate to that prayer. If I’ve prayed it once, I’ve prayed it a thousand times: “God, just tell me what you want me to do. If you make Your will clear then I’ll obey You, no matter what it is. Just please, let me in on the plan…” But do you know what God’s response to Moses was???
That’s it. He didn’t tell Moses how He was going to do it or when they were going to get there. All He said was, “I will go with you” and that was enough for Moses.
This is the passage I find myself coming back to over and over again. Whenever I want answers to questions such as “why do You have me in this job?”, “how is everything going to come together?”, “when am I going to see the fulfillment of the promises You’ve made to me?”, etc. I hear that gentle voice whispering to my heart: “I will go with you”. And I am learning that that is enough.
