My Presence will go together with you, and I provides you with relaxation (Exodus 33:14).

In all of lifes challenges, God provides us the one factor we’d like probably the most:

His Presence.

When Moses was main the kids of Israel by the wilderness to the promised land, God personally accompanied them. A pillar of cloud would descend upon the tent of assembly and God would communicate to Moses as a person speaks along with his buddy (Exodus 33:11).

After the Israelites sinned by making a golden calf and worshipping it, God stated, I’ll now not journey with you, for you’re a cussed, unruly individuals. If I did, I’d be tempted to destroy you alongside the best way. I’ll ship an angel to information you (see Exodus 32).

A few of us may need been proud of an angelic presence, however Moses was devastated. He wished Gods private presence.

For those who dont go together with us personally, I dont wish to transfer a step from this place, he stated. Moses knew from years of expertise that our safety is in God alone.

And the LORD relented.

I’ll personally go together with you, Moses, and I provides you with relaxation,
He stated (Exodus 33:14 NLT).

On the finish of his life, Moses was capable of move on the promise to Joshua. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD is the one who goes earlier than you.

He will probably be with you; he’ll neither fail you nor abandon you (Deuteronomy 31:8 NLT).

Jesus repeated the promise to us:

I cannot depart you as orphans. I’ll come to you (John 14:18);

and the author of Hebrews reiterated the promise:

God has stated, By no means will I depart you; by no means will I forsake you(Hebrews 13:5).

However I dont really feel His presence, you may say. Ive discovered that our emotions dont all the time inform us the reality. They fluctuate with the climate or a very good nights sleep. However once we hold clinging to Gods abiding truthGod is with me now– the sentiments finally observe.

To Brother Lawrence, a monk who lived in France throughout the seventeenth century, practising the presence of God was a moment-by-moment self-discipline that resulted in joyful dwelling. He would cease his menial work within the kitchenor no matter he was doingand reward God f or the privilege of understanding Him and serving Him.

Keep in mind God by no means leaves us except we go away first,

he writes in his e-book Working towards the Presence of God.

Our decisions each day, hourly, minute-by-minute immediately have an effect on whether or not we transfer towards God or away from Him.

Thanks, Father, thanks that you’re with me not simply in idea however in precise presence and you’ll be with me all day lengthy. I wish to stroll in Your methods and do Your will.
