Go To God

God directed Moses and he followed. Moses did what the Lord told him to do. He put God first and walked by faith.

He stood firm against Pharaoh. He didn’t compromise. It would’ve been so easy to negotiate, not hold fast to the direction of the Lord, and at least get some quick relief for the suffering Israelites. But Moses went to God and obeyed.

In the desert, Moses led the people where the Lord led him. The people complained and grumbled to Moses. Again, it would’ve been so easy for Moses to try to work things out with the people, or maybe just give up on them. Instead, he went to God with the people’s complaints. God gave him answers and he obeyed.

Moses sought God every time. He kept his eyes on God.

He knew where his answers came from. He knew where his hope came from. He knew where his life came from.

God is the giver of life.

Pharaoh went after Moses. The people went to Moses. Moses went to God.

Psalm 121 on clouds
Psalm 121

When God calls me and leads me to walk the path He’s called me to, I will experience resistance of some kind. Whether it’s people, circumstance, or even myself and my doubts.

I must go to my God.

God made me, gave me life, set my feet on His path. God will see me through. He is mine and I am His.

He has my answers. He is my hope. He gives me life.

Just like Moses, I go to God first. Or do I? I must. I must go to God first. I need to because I need Him.

When others cast doubt and complain against me, when I fear, when I stumble, I must turn to God first.

Moses, David, Elijah, patriarchs and prophets of old all went to God. We, as believers, have this great cloud of witnesses, those who have gone before (Hebrews 12:1). We go to God.

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
The sun will not smite you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
The Lord will protect you from all evil;
He will keep your soul.
The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in
From this time forth and forever.
Psalm 121 NASB
