Why God might not go on your journey - Exodus 33:3

Exodus 33 1 The Lord said to Moses, “Lead these people you brought from Egypt to the land I promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; for I said, ‘I will give this land to your descendants.’ 2 I will send an Angel before you to drive out the Canaanites, Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. 3 It is a land ‘flowing with milk and honey’; but I will not travel among you, for you are a stubborn, unruly people, and I would be tempted to destroy you along the way.”

If you've ever found yourself making up scenarios or imagining things that haven’t happened and worrying yourself needlessly, stop it.  Our mind is a powerful tool given to us by God yet many of us never learn to use it wisely.

Philippians 2:13 (TLB) - For God is at work within you, helping you want to obey him, and then helping you do what he wants.
There was an air of expectancy when I stepped through sacred doors recently. 
What is God going to do today?  The thought had briefly crossed my mind earlier in the day.
One more door, open one more door.
I did. 
I wasn't disappointed.
