It was in the tabernacle that God’s presence was day in and day out. There was even a most special time when Moses saw the Lord face to face and was able to ask him about finding grace in his sight. Just image God coming down in a cloud and desiring to speak to none other than you. This is what happened to Moses, and I bet he was on his knees the whole time he was speaking to God. Surely, to kneel before the Lord, my King, would be the least I could do. It is written, “and all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his tent door. And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.” (Exodus 33:10,11) Notice how Joshua saw what was happening and most likely was speechless as he stood and saw Moses speak to God. Wouldn’t you be speechless if you witnessed an event like this? I know I would be, for sure.
So now let’s find out what Moses wanted to ask God about, being in that special moment with him, like on Mount Sinai. Number one, he wanted to be directed by God and shown the way. Number two, to consider Israel and the people’s needs. These are valiant words, coming from someone as sincere as Moses. It is written, “and Moses said unto the Lord, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight. Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people. And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.” (Exodus 33:12-14) Surely, because God’s grace it on us, he will also show us the way, while helping us, and giving us rest. God is with those who seek His face on a daily basis. I pray that this is your life. However, if it is not, will you do what it takes to get right with God today. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that one day I may see You face to face, and on good terms. I know that the wicked will see You during the great white throne judgment, while in fear and trembling before You. When I finally see You, I pray that I am in paradise before Your throne. I love You, Lord. I pray that You have found me worthy to enter heaven. Be with me, God. Guide me on the path of righteousness. Help me to be the father I should be for my children. Help me to be the husband I should be for my wife. Check everything that is in my life and help me remove anything that goes against Your will. Be with me and help me. See my needs and the needs of my family. I have prayed about many things over and over again and I pray that I will one day find closure upon those things. I truly feel that these things are important and I pray that I will find favor in Your sight. I don’t wish my health to interrupt what I could be doing for You as an evangelist for Your kingdom and while at work. You are my greater healer and I pray that I will be healed in Your due time. I love You, Lord. I trust in You. Amen.
