Presence · Rest in Him

rest in Him… Exodus 33:14…

And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Exodus 33:14 ESV
God had said to Moses…
“… I will not go up among you, lest I consume you on the way,
for you are a stiff-necked people.”
Exodus 33:3 ESV
He said this after the golden calf incident…
and the smashing of the commandments…
His announcement sent Moses into a tizzy…
Moses said to the Lord, “See, you say to me,
‘Bring up this people,’ but you have not let me know
whom you will send with me. Yet you have said,
‘I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.’
Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight.
Consider too that this nation is your people.”
Exodus 33:12-13 ESV
Moses found no rest… in God staying behind…
God had compassion on Moses…
in response to his prayer…
He relented and said…
My presence will go with you…

Along with God’s presence…
He gives us rest…
No other presence…
gives us rest…
only God…
Like Moses…
call on Him to lead you…
follow Him and no other…
know His rest…
