Daily Meeting Place
A Promise of the LORD'S Presence
Today's Passage: Exodus 23:20-33
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.

20. "See, I am sending an angel before you to protect you on your journey and lead you safely to the place I have prepared for you.
21. Pay close attention to him, and obey his instructions. Do not rebel against him, for he is my representative, and he will not forgive your rebellion.
22. But if you are careful to obey him, following all my instructions, then I will be an enemy to your enemies, and I will oppose those who oppose you.
23. For my angel will go before you and bring you into the land of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites, and Jebusites, so you may live there. And I will destroy them completely.
24. You must not worship the gods of these nations or serve them in any way or imitate their evil practices. Instead, you must utterly destroy them and smash their sacred pillars.
25. "You must serve only the LORD your God. If you do, I will bless you with food and water, and I will protect you from illness.
26. There will be no miscarriages or infertility in your land, and I will give you long, full lives.
27. "I will send my terror ahead of you and create panic among all the people whose lands you invade. I will make all your enemies turn and run.
28. I will send terror ahead of you to drive out the Hivites, Canaanites, and Hittites.
29. But I will not drive them out in a single year, because the land would become desolate and the wild animals would multiply and threaten you.
30. I will drive them out a little at a time until your population has increased enough to take possession of the land.
31. And I will fix your boundaries from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, and from the eastern wilderness to the Euphrates River. I will hand over to you the people now living in the land, and you will drive them out ahead of you.
32. "Make no treaties with them or these gods.
33. They must not live in your land, or they will cause you to sin against me. If you serve their gods, you will be caught in the trap of idolatry.
