A Guard on the journey

Exodus 23:20-22 (ESV)

Behold, I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. Pay careful attention to him and obey his voice: do not rebel against him, for he will not pardon your transgression, for my name is in him. But if you carefully obey his voice  and do all that I say, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.

He has prepared a place for me. I have a prepared place. Reserved and paid for from His own treasury, but I am lost without someone to go before me and guard the way. My obedience stems from that relationship to my Guard. He is no nonsense. He does not abide disobedience, and if I follow the prepared path, prepared journey, prepared destination, then I have a true Guard who never fails to protect.
