Rest In The Midst Of...
And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” -Exodus 33:14 (NKJV)
Moses was already experiencing a close walk with God, yet he still needed reassurance from Him.
Take a look at Moses' prayer to God:
"You have said, I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight.’ Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight." -Exodus 12b-13 (NKJV)Moses starts off by stating what God had already promised him then he goes on to say if that is true then show me now Your way, that I may know you...
Moses was a mere human being who was used by God.
He made mistakes, was disobedient at times, and sometimes wanted to do things his own way, yet he always came back to God for guidance; Moses knew there was no other way but God's way.
In the midst of our daily activities, it is good to stop like Moses did and ask our Heavenly Father to show us His way that we may know His way.
As we do this, our crooked path will be made straight and thus will fall into accordance with His will1 rather than our own.
Furthermore and most great, we can be at peace because He is with us, and will provide us with much needed rest2 from our own striving.
Take time today from your busy schedule to re-connect with our Heavenly Father and experience His peace and His rest.
Thank you Heavenly Father that we can turn to you at any time for guidance, protection and rest. In Jesus' name!
