Starting in Exodus 13, God lead the Israelites out of Egypt, through the wilderness, and into the promised land.
“The Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud by day to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire by night to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night. He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.”
He was a pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire during the night. They were never alone. He was with them through all of their troubles, through all of their wanderings, and then also during their accomplishments.
Sometimes, homeschooling makes me feel alone. It sometimes feels as though I am the only one in this great big world doing what I’m doing. When I take my kids to the store in the middle of the day, we get “the look”. You know, the look. That, “why aren’t her kids in school?” look. Sometimes it gets to me. It makes me feel like no one gets it.
But, then I remember that I’m not alone. God is always with me, just as he is always with you.
He never left the Israelites just like He never leaves us. He is there carrying us through our troubles, walking beside us through our wanderings, and celebrating with us during our accomplishments. Even though we don’t always think that He’s with us, He is. He promises to always be there.
“Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
