Isaiah 52:11-12 MSG
in the process of worship, carrying the holy vessels of God.
But you don’t have to be in a hurry.
You’re not running from anybody!
God is leading you out of here,
and the God of Israel is also your rear guard.
Currently I’m in a kind of awkward situation. I’m happy at work but another company is interested in interviewing me for another position because of the work I’ve done here. It’s easy when you are unhappy at a job to think about leaving—but when you are content and finally settled in a new job–it’s uncomfortable to think about change.
I love this verse because it reminds me that I’m not running. I don’t have to think about leaving here and running somewhere else. If God wants to move He will direct my path and I will day by day and step by step go in that direction. Nothing needs to be stressful about this. Nothing needs to feel rushed and frenzied. If God is leading me out of here–He will do so by going before me and by walking behind me. I am surrounded on all sides.
God hears our prayers. We can smile and rest knowing He’s got it all under control. We can rest.
