Not Without Your Presence!

Not Without Your Presence!

There is a word that you may have heard a lot lately used by those who would like to see change in America.  That word is “re-imagine”. The definition of the word imagine is:  to form a mental image or concept of; suppose or assume.  So to re-imagine something would be to rethink it or form a different image or concept other than your original thought. This word sounds so good and innocent doesn’t it? Because change can be good. But changes are not always for the better. Satan did his best in the garden to get Eve to “re-imagine” what it would be like if she knew what God knew. Scripture calls Satan cunning.  He had to sweet talk Eve to get her to see things differently and he was quite successful because we read – “6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too.”  We must be on guard in the day we are living as Satan roams around looking for those he may devour.  And he is sly.  He will use seducing words and phrases to get you to consider things you know are contrary to God’s Word and God’s will.  God’s hand was upon those who established this government and its Constitution. America’s founding was ordained by God and flourishes as long as we serve Him. Be on guard to those who would have you re-imagine a different way where God has no place. Let us be like Moses and say we will not go on without God’s presence! It’s what sets us apart from the rest of the world!

1 The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the LORD God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” 2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. 3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’” 4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. 5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” 6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. Genesis 3:1-6 (NLT)

Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place. 16 How will anyone know that you look favorably on me—on me and on your people—if you don’t go with us? For your presence among us sets your people and me apart from all other people on the earth.” Exodus 33:15-16 (NLT)
