Leave Mount Horeb

6 The Lord our God said to us in Horeb, ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. 7 Turn and take your journey, and go to the hill country of the Amorites and to all their neighbors in the Arabah, in the hill country and in the lowland and in the Negeb and by the seacoast, the land of the Canaanites, and Lebanon, as far as the great river, the river Euphrates. 8 See, I have set the land before you. Go in and take possession of the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give to them and to their offspring after them.’ ~ Deuteronomy 1:6-8

Mount Horeb is the Mountain of God; that’s where God came down to meet them. But they didn’t spend their lives there. No. God told them they had spent enough time in His presence learning His law; now it was time to put that worship into action. Sometimes, we stay in worship and don’t put that worship into action. We don’t do anything with what we have been given. We’re expected to go out into the world and carry the Spirit of the LORD with us in the name of Jesus so that we might spread His light wherever we go. We’re to break up the darkness, not just remain at the mountain. Because the LORD doesn’t just remain on the mountaintop. No. His dwelling is with mankind. He will go before us, behind us, beside us, and in us if we will follow Him.

Dear LORD, please forgive me for remaining in my own comfort zone and not evangelizing all that I meet and come in contact with. Please help me not to ever get caught up in my own little world, instead, help me to be a light in this deep darkness around me. Please shine Your light through me and give me the confidence to always share Your Word with the world. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
