It's not about making a point…let's make a difference

Unless the Lord Goes With Us

“Danger Will Robinson, danger!” exclaimed the robot. That phrase is from the 1960’s TV show ‘Lost in Space’. It was about a family sent on a space mission that went awry for a multitude of reasons. It was loosely based on the book The Swiss Family Robinson, a novel by Johann David Wyss. Will Robinson, the youngest of the family, was always up for adventure and at times was as inquisitive and reckless as anyone at his age.

His constant companion was a robot, named robot. The robot’s primary purpose was to provide environmental control which often led to warnings of impending danger. It seemed the robot was always warning young Will of danger, sometimes he’d listen and other times he wouldn’t. When he didn’t, he often ended up in a life or death situation requiring rescue.

So it is with the Holy Spirit, if we will listen to His promptings, we will avoid the pitfalls of the enemy. This does not just apply to our personal life, but also our professional and business life. Remember, pray, wait, listen and then step out in faith as the Lord leads.

Unless the Lord Goes With Us
by Os Hillman

“Then Moses said to him, ‘If Your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.’” Exodus 33:15

Moses was in the middle of his journey through the wilderness, leading the people of Israel out of Egypt. The people had just sinned by worshiping the golden calf. Moses interceded for them and God spared them their lives. Moses then talked one on one with the Lord. He knew he could not lead this stubborn people without God’s presence. He had come to realize that without God’s presence, he could not do anything. How will anyone know that You are pleased with me and with Your people unless You go with us? What else will distinguish me and Your people from all the other people on the face of the earth? (Exodus 33:16)

Moses did not want to move farther without the assurance that God was moving with him. He knew it was a life-and-death situation. He sought the Lord with his whole heart on this one matter.

The question is a good one. If we are to be effective in anything we do for the Lord, the Lord must be in the midst of it. Unless the Lord’s power is seen among us, we will be just another person who has religion. Unless we manifest His life to others, they will see only good behavior that is easily counterfeited by moral people. Moving out in presumption will end in failure and frustration. Ask the Lord today to assure you of His presence and power in your activities. Then you will be assured that you will be distinguished among all the other people on the face of the earth.
