Did God really say he is pulling for you?
Yes … yes he did.
Early in his career as leader of Jewish slaves, God said to Moses and the people, “I will be with you.” Exodus 3:12.
“I AM!” Exodus 3:14.
“You will plunder …” Exodus 3:22.
“I have promised to bring you up out of your misery and into a land flowing with milk and honey.” Exodus 3:17.
Then much later God, working through Jesus, said, “I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Often we think we are alone, that nothing we do matters — that our efforts are a waste of time, a waste of money. But if God is for you, if you have exchanged your life for the life of Christ, then when you are doing the thing he called you to do, he is pulling for you. You may not see your efforts rewarded immediately. You may not hear his voice or see circumstances change, but he is working on your behalf.
Moses and God’s people heard these promises from God, but outwardly nothing changed. They remained slaves in Egypt. In fact, over the next year their conditions grew worse.
In what way do you wish God was pulling for you? Ask for his help.
“Lord, please be with me today. Be my God today. Be the great I AM that stands for me against my enemies. Take plunder from my enemy, Satan, and provide for my daily needs. Bring me out of this land, these circumstances, and lead me into your expansive kingdom. Finally, Father, at the end of each day, each week, and my life, give me rest in you.”
