    Moses said to Yahweh, "Behold, you tell me, 'Bring up this people:' and you haven't let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.' Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may...

    But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. In praying, don't use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard for their much speakin...

    Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree," that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13'14 WEB....

The Cattle Drive

  • Moses said to the people, "Don't be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of Yahweh, which he will work for you today: for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you shall never see them again. Yahweh will fight for you, and you shall be still." Yahweh said to Moses, "Why do you cry to me? Speak to the children of Israel, that they go forward." Exodus 14:13'15 WEB.

    Moses and the Israelite people stood on the river bank with the Egyptian army closing in on them. Moses had just finished a great faith-filled speech about resisting fear. He had told the people that the enemy you see today, you will never see again. Then in the following verse, the Lord asked him: "Why do you cry to Me? Tell the people to go forward."

    Sometimes we can become paralyzed, waiting to know the will of God when we really need to get moving. Oh yes, we need to pray and listen, but do we really need seven confirmations before we get started? A car can only be steered while moving, and a boat can't be navigated while sitting at anchor. Often the Lord will speak to us after we start the journey. If you miss Him, He will find you, for the Shepherd goes after the lost sheep.

    "By faith, Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out to the place which he was to receive for an inheritance. He went out, not knowing where he went." (Hebrews 11:8 WEB).

    In our life, we often find that a word from God comes to correct our course much as they do on a cattle drive. As long as the herd is moving in the right direction, little has to be said. The word comes to us when we start to get off course, come to an intersection, or to bring encouragement during a difficult part of the journey.

    Looking back over my life, I have sometimes felt like I was being herded through a loading chute with no door on either side. In fact, I prefer it when the Lord does it that way, for it keeps my decisions simple. Put Him first in your life, let your journey begin, and let Him correct your course as needed.

    As long as we are walking the correct path, it's often pretty quiet. Isaiah 30:21 reads, "And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it; when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left." A word of correction comes when you turn from His path, and I say that from experience.

    Also, you stay with the last word given until a new one comes. Even things that I felt strongly about which seemed to fail still worked out for our good, if for no more than education. So don't become paralyzed by fear and anxiety because you feel that you may miss "God's Will." He will catch you if you fall.

    If you have a problem determining His will, how do you know this isn't it? That idea that keeps returning could very well be Him trying to guide you. It's often easier to follow the voice of God than you think. All that it takes is putting Him first in your life, then He will bring the course corrections as they are needed one day at a time.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I choose to put You first in my life. I submit to Your will. Please guide me today, and put me where I need to be. Help me become the very best version of myself and to shine Your light on this earth. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6) ~ If you are in need of prayer, we and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
