I'm doing Beth Moore's revised version of A Woman's Heart, God's Dwelling Place on my own. Today's homework was encouraging and I thought I'd share what helped me most.
Exodus 14:19-20 "Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, 20 coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long." (NIV)
"Jehovah-Jireh provided the pillar of a cloud not only to direct the people but also to protect them. Revel in a God whose business is to come between you and your enemies!"
"Remember this foundational truth: everything God did with Israel in the realm of the seen, He does with us in the realm of the unseen. God has not ceased actively parenting His children."
"What enemy are you battling today? First, invite God to come between you and your enemy. Second, invite Him to open "the eyes of your heart" so that you will recognize Him at work (Eph. 1:18). Third, count on Jesus; He never fails. "
