I Will Be With You…

I was just reading Exodus 3:11 – 12.  I was thinking of the three trips I have coming up to equip pastors to study the Bible more effectively.  The first is less than six weeks away.  There are many logistical challenges that I am facing with these three trips.  Not the least of which is translation.
Do you ever find yourself reading what you want into the text?  Thoughts at DTTB.
So I am looking for comfort.  I was reading this passage and, although I know better, I was kind of thinking that God was speaking to me through this.  He will be with me.  But I know better than to wrench passages violently out of context…

As I was praying just now about what to write, the Lord brought Matthew 28:18 – 20 to mind.  I have not noticed before the parallel between the Lord’s commission of Moses and His commission of the disciples.
  • …certainly I will be with you…
  • …lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
So perhaps I can take comfort.
