9 As Moses went into the tent, the pillar of cloud would come down and stay at the entrance, while the Lord spoke with Moses. 10 Whenever the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the entrance to the tent, they all stood and worshiped, each at the entrance to their tent. 11 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. Exodus 33:9-11
DL Moody once said, “Moses spent forty years in the king’s palace thinking that he was somebody; then he lived forty years in the wilderness finding out that without GOD he was a nobody; finally he spent forty more years discovering how a nobody with GOD can be a somebody.” Moses found his strength not in a tent or pillar of cloud, but meeting with God. I think we tend to overestimate ourselves as somebodies until we walk through the wilderness of defeat and discouragement to find out that we are a nobody without God, only to discover that a nobody with God can become somebody for God. Let Moses serve as your example today, to pray for the nobodies with God to become somebodies for God. Pray for renewal of your heart, mind and soul all day today. Pray for the nobodies of this world to find their worth in Jesus Christ, so that they can become a somebody for God.
