How important is the presence of God?

“Go up to the land flowing with milk and honey. But I will not go with you, because you are a stiff-necked people and I might destroy you on the way.” Exodus 33:3
            The presence of God means God is with you, protecting you, preparing the way for you, helping you to succeed.  If God’s not with you, you will perish.
            Many times we move ahead and never ask God to join us because we feel self-sufficient.  Even with years of religious training, that can be dangerous.
            God threatened to not join the Israelites in the desert in Exodus 33.  The people and Moses panicked.  They pleaded with God who reconsidered, seeing their passion.  The presence of God means the approval of God.  Don’t go anywhere God isn’t present.
