When God Moves
LORD, when You came from Seir, when You marched from the fields of Edom, the earth trembled, the heavens poured rain, the clouds poured water. The mountains melted before the LORD, even Sinai before the LORD, the God of Israel.
These verses depict a great storm, which carried the presence of God. It is a picture of God moving from the wilderness into Canaan via the land of Edom. When God gives us a great victory, He is often moving us to another place where we are called to build His kingdom. That is why the devil has us in bondage in the first place. He knows that if we are able to move to the places God has destined for us, we will flourish and increase the kingdom of God. If we become comfortable in the devil’s domain, we will never experience the freedom, reward, and fulfillment of the Promised Land.
God moved from Sinai (place where the law was given) into Canaan (Promised Land) via the land of Edom, which means red. God moves us from bondage to the law into the fruitful place of our own promised land through the blood of Christ, which is grace! Matthew 27:45-52 tells us of a time when darkness came over the whole land, and an earthquake shook the place. Indeed, God was moving from one place to another. Christ was on the cross taking the full punishment of our sins, and He felt the presence of God leave Him at that time. God was making a new covenant of grace with His people, and the curtain of the temple was split in two.
When God moves from one place to another, it is very obvious. Move with Him! Don’t remain in bondage. Follow Him into your promised land by grace. Look to the finished work of Christ on the cross, and enter a new place designed just for you.
Have a blessed day!
