Exodus 33:12-14 Moses said to the Lord, “Look, you’ve been telling me, ‘Lead these people forward.’ But you haven’t told me whom you will send with me. Yet you’ve assured me, ‘I know you by name and think highly of you.’ Now if you do think highly of me, show me your ways so that I may know you and so that you may really approve of me. Remember too that this nation is your people.” The Lord replied, “I’ll go myself, and I’ll help you.”
Morning Prayer: God, so often I am unsure as to what You are asking of me. I’m fearful, anxious and sometimes afraid that I am not up to the task. And then I am reminded that You are not sending me alone. You go before me, to meet me and support me. That gives me courage to be willing to listen for Your voice and to step out into the unknown. Help me to continue to listen and respond so that I can share Your love and grace with others. May it be so.
Reflection Question: How hard is it for you to go where God is sending you? How reassured are you that God will go before you, to meet you in that place?
