What is Your Default?


The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent (Exo. 33:11).

Pray - What is Your Default?

If God is who He is and we believe Him, then it is inconceivable for anyone to ever seek help elsewhere except from God. People who do not believe in God turn to Him as a last resort. He ought to be the first and only option we have. We must wait on Him until He shows us the next step. Our passage for today reveals what Moses and Joshua did in their time. Moses showed up regularly at the Tent of Meeting to connect with God. Joshua made the Tent his home – dwelling in the presence of God all the time. Others who turned to God to resolve their crises included Job, whose regular custom was to pray for his children (Job 1:5). Daniel continued to pray just as he had done before, even when a decree criminalized prayer (Dan. 6:10). But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed (Luke 5:15). What is your default when crises hit?
