“The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Then Moses said to him, ‘If your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here.’ – Then Moses said, ‘Now show me your glory.’”
Exodus 33:14-5, 18 (NLT)
The people of God had sinned. Moses was in the mountain, hearing from God, when God told him to go down from the mountain. This was because while Moses was with God, the people were rebelling against God by creating an idol and worshipping it. Moses pleaded with God to spare the people and God told him to take the people away. Moses knew better than to lead this people without God’s guidance so he asked for God’s presence to be with him. Even more, Moses asked God to show him His glory. Oh that we would seek out and depend upon the presence of God the same way Moses did! What a difference it would make in our life. In his book “Experiencing Healing Prayer”, Rick Richardson writes, “Do you long to be filled at the core of your being with more strength, more substance, more hope? You may feel urgent need of immediate help and practical steps. But I implore you to realize that knowing God, practicing God’s presence and seeking God’s life are more important to your healing than anything else in all the world.” C.S Lewis, in his book “Miracles” writes, “The presence of God is the most real thing we ever encounter.” Today, decide like Moses not to go any further, not to consider any new direction, without being conscious of the presence of God. Might we pray, “Lord, show me Your glory.”
Father, I know so little about Your presence. All I know is I don’t want to take another step without really knowing You. Lord, help me become aware of Your presence. Reveal Yourself to me. I pray in Jesus’ name.
