Happy Sunday everyone! It’s a rainy Sunday morning today and I’m not sure whether I want to be reading, sleeping or just staying cozy in my bed, sipping hot tea and digressing from all my work by day-dreaming. The books will win at the end of the day. Hope y’all are going to church? Fellowship is everything everything!
I just want to share something quick from my meditation this morning. All coming from Exodus 33: 12-23. My Bible tags it ‘Moses and the Glory of the Lord’. Please read it when you can. But my verse there is verse 15. It says;
Then Moses said to him, “If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.
It takes a certain level of boldness to tell God not to send you out for any reason. Here, Moses was not ready to take a step if God was not going to be with him. It was like, Baba, you gats show or I no do again.
This wasn’t meant for today but I woke up with this verse in mind and I decided to go with it. Looking back, I saw many times when I told God I wasn’t going to leave the spot if he wasn’t coming along. And then, I said, Well, I’m going whether you coming or not. And I went on a frollic of my own, knowing fully well that God wasn’t with me.
It takes a level of complete trust to say to God, don’t even send me up from here if you are not planning on coming along. For me now, it’s all about my Bar finals and it is so hard for me to say to God, do not even send me up from here if you are not planning on coming. What is the point? In verse 16, Moses said, how will anyone know that you are pleased with me if you don’t go with us? What will distinguish us? We don’t want to be like every other red scholar… We don’t want to be like every other person! So no Lord, thanks but no thanks. We want none of it if you are not a part of it.
Have we gotten to the point where we genuinely say for your Glory Lord, for your Glory? I don’t want anything if it doesn’t showcase you. Don’t come and give me the one that I will see and forget you.
Again, I also saw that many times I have worked hard because I felt I had something to prove to certain people. I wanted to show that I was just as smart, just as pretty and just as amazing. Wrong motive. We need to check ourselves everytime we want something so bad and ask ourselves why.
For your Glory Lord
I will do anything
I will take anything
I will give anything
If you do not go with me into that victory
Then do not send me up from here
What’s the point of winning
If you are not pleased with me
If people can’t smell, see and hear you all over it
What is the point of the victory?
Have a great Sunday y’all and remember to remind yourself all the time, it’s for His Glory. It’s the only legit reason to want anything. Every other thing falls behind.
I love you all!
Some would say it’s no biggie but I love any reason to celebrate and I love milestones. This is my 100th post. I’m screaming internally because I’m so excited. It’s really hard to believe that I have published 100 times!
God has been faithful and gracious. Have a treat on my behalf today. 100 posts ain’t no joke. 🤗
