FROM THE FIRST DAY UNTIL THE LAST
Heb. 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Moses had seen the hand of God upon his life even before he began to follow Him. When Moses faced death as a child, on the order of Pharaoh, The Lord delivered him supernaturally through unusual circumstances. He was hidden away in a small ark only to be discovered and raised by Pharaoh’s daughter. The Lord prepared Moses, protected him, and directed him all throughout his life.
The unseen Friend was with Moses when the Israelites wanted to stone him, and also when he came down from the mountain and saw the people’s idolatry. He was with Moses when the people began to die because they were being bitten by snakes. The holy, invisible God was with him when armies from all the surrounding nations came against Israel, and He smote the enemies of His people. The Lord was with him every step of the way. In the end, Moses walked up the mountain, looked into the Promised Land, and died. The Bible says in Deuteronomy 34:6 that his secret friend buried him. His Friend who sticks closer than a brother was with him to the end. This same Friend will take care of you from your first breath to your dying day. He knows where you are, and He is very near to you.
Today is the day that you can begin to depend upon Him who is invisible. This invisible Friend, once a stranger, has become my very best Friend and I know He will never leave me nor forsake me (see Deut. 31:6). He is always there for me. God knows what you are facing today in your family, in your body, in your finances, and in your past. He is closer than you think. If you will open your heart to Him, Jesus will give you everything you need on this journey through the wilderness that we call life.
Put the blood on your doorposts, feast on the Lamb, and get strength for the journey. He will strengthen you deep down on the inside. He will make a way where there seems to be no way. He will guide and direct you by His Holy Spirit. He will heal you. He will feed you daily with spiritual food that you gather every day as you search His Word. And He will satisfy your thirsty soul with living water. This invisible friend is all that you need and more, He longs to come near to you. He has been with you, watching over you all of your life. Just as he watched and cared for Moses, He has His eye on you. He has been with you from your very first day and will stay with you to the very last day of your life. His plans are sure, His care is perfect.
