“I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt
that I might be your God. I am the Lord your God!” Numbers 15:41
Are you someone that functions better when you know the reason why? In an age when many are trying to find themselves, discover their purpose and just plain figure out what this life is all about, it’s easy to run to the next self-help book to get the answers to “Why am I here?”
There are verses in the Bible that will call us to stop running, stop chasing and stop striving. There are verses in the Word of God that if we simply took the time to listen will answer and calm our every anxious thought (and trust me, I have many.)
Numbers 15:41 is one of those verse that answers the question of “Lord, why did you bring me here, why did you get me through all these battles and struggles, what on earth am I doing here?”
The answer is “I brought you through so that I might be your God.”
There is a whole lot packed into that. If He is our God that means that that we have a strong Tower to run to. If He is our God, it means that we are His children and heirs to the Kingdom. If He is our God, it means that we are comforted. If He is our God, it means that we do not need to fear. If He is our God, it means no one can come against us because He is for us. If He is our God it means all of His promises are true. If He is our God, it means that we are Loved.
He IS our God! Rest in that today and take a moment to simply breath that in.
What does it mean for you today and in the season of life that you are in for Him to be Your God?
