After the Exodus, God remained engaged in Moses’ life. God called Moses up to the mountain numerous times, and even gave Moses a detailed book of law that functioned as a guide to life—the Torah. It is clear that throughout his life, Moses was able to look to God for support, for encouragement, for assurance. He conversed with God, engaged God, and let God lead him through the challenges he faced.
In life today, we are each faced with our own challenges. As a result, we may feel as if we are left to wander through the barren desert wondering where to go and how to proceed with no assurance if we are capable of succeeding alone.
There’s so much work to do. So many responsibilities.
So many obligations to uphold. So many challenges.
But, unlike Moses, we can’t go to God every time we need guidance, or support or assurance. Or can we?
