“And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount. And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount. Neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount.” Exodus 34:2-3
The spiritual journey will always require growth and with growth comes separation from certain things and certain people. Sometimes when God is taking you to another level in him, he sometimes allows even your best friends to turn against you and better yet, some family members will suddenly turn away from you.
Another way to mark growth in Christ is in your interest. The things that once had your interest no longer seem significant and that can include even the very church that you have been a member of for years. It does not mean that something is wrong with your church or your leaders, but it simple means that God has work for you to do elsewhere and he has shifted your focus. Shifting our focus from familiarities and routine is necessary because we tend to want to remain in what we are used to and sometimes delay our spiritual assignment. Many times, this feeling of lack of interest even in your church can be misread for backsliding from your faith. So, it is especially important to stay in prayer and faith as you continue to seek God for his perfect will and most importantly for his guidance as you cross over that season. The journey to the next level can become lonely and you may experience rejection as well, but it is a necessary spiritual component that you will need though you may not fully understand it at this time.
When God told Moses to come back up to mount Sinai, he gave him specific instructions, first he told him to hew the tablets of stone (hew means to cut or chop with an axe). Then he told Moses to get ready to come up in the morning and present himself (his heart must be ready to receive). Also, he told Moses that no man shall accompany him to the mount and no man should be seen near the mount, and neither should the flocks be fed near the mount (Exodus 34:1-3). Glory be to God! like Moses, today God has plans to take you higher, but you must first lose somethings and you must leave some people behind. They cannot accompany you as you go through your season of change. The journey only requires you and God.
How are you feeling today? Have you been feeling confused lately; to the point where you are wondering if you are still a Christian? Or maybe you have experienced some disappointments and rejections as you helplessly watched some of your relationships unexplainable crumbled to the ground. Do not panic! Take it the Lord in prayer and continue to trust him with your salvation. Who knows? It could very well be the start of your journey towards your mount Sinai experience.
Let us pray: Lord, please forgive me of my sins today. Thank you for your word. Please continue to strengthen me as I walk into this new season of my life. Please continue to guide me and give me patience when nothing is making sense in my life, to continue walking in the spirit, knowing that you are there with me in Jesus name. Amen. Until next time. God bless you.
