Topic: Who Are You Travelling With?

TEXT: Exodus 4:18-26

“And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of God in his hand.” – (Exodus 4:20)

Life is a journey fraught with many twists and turns. Disasters and dangers lurk along the way, just like success and victory. The experiences encountered in life are often the outcome of the company you keep as you go on this journey. Regrettably, many people go through life either alone or in the wrong company. How different they are from Moses.

God had commanded Moses to return to Egypt to convince Pharaoh to set Israel free and allow them leave his nation. On his part, Moses, who had settled into a regular life of a family man, was now being uprooted from his comfort zone and sent on an arduous duty. With the backing of his father-in-law, Jethro, Moses took his wife and sons along. God warned him that it would not be an easy task convincing Pharaoh to free the Israelites. He was, however, to remain consistent with his message.

As he pondered over this heavy assignment on his way back to Egypt, he encountered another serious challenge. God threatened to kill him and his son whom he had not circumcised. Until his wife reluctantly and with much complaints obeyed and circumcised their son, the journey was almost aborted.

You need God to stabilise your heart and reassure you as you go through life. You need His presence and power with you. With Him on your side, you will not fear what man can do to you. Allow His word to guide you, believe His promises that cannot fail, obey His every command and look unto Jesus constantly. That way, you can neither fail nor fall.

Walking with God makes the challenges of life easier to deal with.
