And from there to Beer, which is the well where the Lord said to Moses, “Assemble the people that I may give them water.”
In the moment that God wants to save/free the Jewish people, He first sends a stirring of desire in their hearts.
Sometimes The Ishbitzer can say so much with so little. At this point in their journey, the Israelites were wandering through the desert, and when they FIRST reached Beer, God THEN said “Assemble the people…” ie. This place that you have already come to on your own, I will meet you there and give you what you need.
Sometimes we have a feeling, a stirring, even some inner tumult, that points us towards what we really want. What is that thing that I need to pursue to fully become me? To be free of all other constraints and expectations, and to do what I need to do, be who I need to be in order that I manifest my purpose on this earth to make the world a better place? This “stirring of desire” can be both individual and collective.
When we feel that, the Ishbitzer wants us to go for it. Take that seriously and move forward with the confidence that God is ready to meet you there. If you are feeling it, it is because God is feeling it and wants it too.
