Ever been lonely in a crowd? Surrounded by noise and people and activity – but feeling lost, alone, insecure? That’s how Moses felt, leading God’s people towards the Promised Land. He had a big, important job to do. He was man of the moment! Yet he felt lonely and afraid. He desperately needed the encouragement and assurance of God’s presence.

He cried out to God, and God so kindly replied: ‘I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you resteverything will be fine for you.’ (Exodus 33:14)

Alone or in a crowd, your God is with you every moment.
