“The Lord replied, ‘My Presence will go with
you and I will give you rest.’” Exodus 33: 14 (NIV)
We know God delivered on His promise. He led them by day in a cloud and by night in fire in the sky.
He does that for us if we let Him. I recently attended a series of classes on how to better handle finances. I had to pay the money before the classes began. I was hesitant to enroll. We had a trip planned to go see our son. I wasn’t sure if I could spend the money on something that I might not be able to complete. (With the cost involved, I didn’t want to stop going part-way through.)
In the kit that the class fee covered there was a pack of CDs, which had all the class sessions recorded. I missed one class because I had a sinus infection. I used the CD and marked my work book.
After our trip, I again used the lesson CD and marked the pages in my workbook. At the next class, one of the teachers asked me if I had watched online. I told her I hadn’t but how I had again received the material.
Then she tells me that if a student watches the missed lesson online, he or she receives a certificate from the website and that counts as a make-up class for the student.
I came home and watched the two missed classes. On the last night of class, we all received graduation certificates. Had I not followed the Lord’s guidance, I would probably have continued making some bad mistakes in handling my money. That would have led to some depressing times for me. God knew my heart and led me out of my comfort zone and into the place He wanted me to be in order to learn what He has for me. I feel more confident because of attending this class.
