Walking with God is not always as clear as we would like for it to be. But then, maybe we shouldn’t desire for it to be clear. Walking with God is about trusting Him… trusting his Son, Jesus, to be who he has destined to be in our lives. And allowing the Holy Spirit to have total freedom to lead and empower as He desires.
Today, I went for a hike on a rainy day up Pine Mountain. As I walked up the mountain, I thought of Moses and wondered what it was like for him to walk up to spend time with God in such an intimate way. I’m no Moses but as I approached the clouds I asked God to surround me and let me walk with Him up there. I didn’t descend the mountain with stone tablets or a specific word to share with His people, but rather an assurance He is with me.
GOD said to Moses, “Get ready. I’m about to come to you in a thick cloud so that the people can listen in and trust you completely when I speak to you.” (Exodus 19:9, The Message).
Even though our lives don’t seem to make sense at times – or the outcomes aren’t as we planned – or the answer to prayer didn’t come in a way we wanted it to – He is with us. I captured the moment in this picture. I thought about how much this path represents life… my life. As I reflect upon this afternoon,
Walking into the future is much like this path. I’m asking God to fall on me and my path as the clouds did today on the mountain. Totally enveloped by His presence.
