Read Exodus 33
Moses has a serious meeting with God. God has just told Moses to get up and go to Canaan but He also said that He would not go among the people. They, like us, are a stiff-necked people and God said that if He were among them He would consume them. I think Moses was afraid of being abandoned by God with all of these people. But I must agree with the sentiment. If God is not involved, no matter what it is, I don't want to go.
