Led to Abide

Exodus 15: 13

In Your lovingkindness You have led the people whom You have redeemed; In Your strength You have guided them to Your holy habitation.

Yesterday we talked about the Lord’s Prayer and that God leads us away from temptation. Fully grasping that the Lord wants to lead us day by day and moment by moment is one of the biggest revelations we can have. This verse comes from the book that is all about God leading His people. He busted them out of slavery and led them day and night to the land of promise, to the place He has destined as their place of habitation.

God hasn’t changed. He has redeemed His people and He leads them to a safe place, the place of habitation with Him. This verse says that God leads us to His holy habitation. In other words, this is a place of living with Him. Now, these days, that is not about going to Canaan. It is about living in Him and with Him. In every area of your life He is leading you into a life with Him. He wants to live with you in your work life, in your family and friends life, and even in your sleep life. He has prepared a place in the Spirit where we can abide with Him 24/7. This is the place of His holy abode, living in us with us even as we intertwine ourselves around Him. What He did for the Israelites, He wishes to do for us. We are all His redeemed. He has set us free so that we can be together with Him.

God is always leading His people to the land of milk and honey, to the land of promise. We must take Him at His word and open our ears, hearts and minds to His leading. Allow God to speak to you in everything you do. You are going to enjoy abiding with Him.
