Know His Presence
The well-known line by Ralph Waldo Emerson says, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” Altered just a bit, it lines up perfectly with how God sees it all: Life is a journey with a destination. The Book of Exodus plots that journey for the believer as it recounts the story of the Hebrews becoming the people of God on the way to their Promised Land. For the Jews, it was the land of Canaan, but for the Christ-follower today, it is the eternal kingdom of Jesus Christ. We are bound for glory! And along the way, God works in us to ensure that the journey is all about the destination. His promise is to shape us into his people saying, “It is an awesome thing that I will do with you” (Exodus 34:10 ESV). Today we begin a ten-week series that goes after those awesome things that God has in store for us as we make our way.
