Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
“I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also surely bring you up again…” – Gen 46:4
Jacob was caught between a rock and a hard place: if he stayed in Canaan, he might starve; but if he journeyed to Egypt, he might die! As Jacob sat and thought about whether to go down to Egypt, God came to him in a vision. “I will go down with you,” God said. That was all Jacob needed to hear. He arose and went.
God gave Moses the same promise in Exodus, as He called Moses into the Promised Land. Moses knew he couldn’t stay in the wilderness; but he also knew the road to God’s inheritance would be full of obstacles. So what did he do? He talked to God. He asked God, “Will You go with us?” And God answered: “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest” (Gen 33:14). That was all Moses needed to hear. He arose and went.
Is God calling you into the unknown? Has He called you to the Promised Land – a place filled with opportunity and abundance – but left the details of how exactly you are going to get there unclear? Ask Him to come with you. Invite Him to lead you into the unknown, and volunteer to follow His lead. Refuse to take one single step until He directs your path. Then, set out with full confidence as He communicates His plan for you.
God’s Presence is enough. He is all you need! God will protect you from all your enemies, and promote you to His best for your life. If He goes with you, you cannot fail!
Father, thank You that You are with me! I know that I don’t have to fear, for You are with me. I know that I don’t have to doubt, for You are with me! Because You are with me, nothing can stand against me!
