Following the leader: A devotion for April 22, 2014

" 'In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strength you will guide them to your holy dwelling.' " — Exodus 15:13 (NIV)

When visiting a new place, whether it's going on a wilderness hike or spending time at an historic site, it's good to have a guide. Guides can make sure we get to where we want to go. In this song, sung by Moses and Miriam, after the Hebrews had crossed the Red Sea, escaping certain death by the Egyptians, we hear how God chooses to guide His people — in unfailing love and in strength. God leads us through difficulties and challenges, even through death, to bring us to the place where He wants us to be — His holy dwelling.

Prayer: Loving God, give us faith to always follow Your lead through the dangers of this life that we may rest assured in Your presence. Amen.
