Simple Thoughts On Promises- 191

The LORD replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." (Exodus 33:14)

Going somewhere but not confident about your journey? Take the above promise with you. You can't get any greater protection, because the One who goes with you is none other than God Almighty.

Do you fear the enemy who is greater in number? Take another promise.
"Those who are with us are more than those who are with them." (2 Kings 6:16)
A host of angels to take care of you as a child of God.

Worried about the unseen evil forces? The Bible has a remedy- Believe this-
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)

Ezra the scribe who was among the returning exiles from Babylon was given a command by King Artaxerxes:
Deliver to the God of Jerusalem all the articles entrusted to you for worship in the temple of your God. (Ezra 7:19)

Ezra writes: I was ashamed to ask the king for soldiers and horsemen to protect us from enemies on the road, because we had told the king, "The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him, but his great anger is against all who forsake him." So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer. (Ezra 8:22,23)

If you have looked to the Lord, his gracious hand will be on you at all times. He will fulfill this promise of his in your life too.
"My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." (Exodus 33:14)
