“He said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Exodus 33:14 NRSV
We often move away from the presence of God when we give in to sorrow, trouble and fear. The irony is that, when we have been given the chance to walk in the presence of God all throughout our life, we sometimes still choose to move away from His presence. But, if we choose over and over again to walk in His presence every single day of our lives, we can be rest assured that we would not make decisions in haste but rather walk in discernment.
In the book of Exodus, chapter 33 verses 12-15, we see that Moses asked God for a way. Not for a sign or a miracle to take place but rather for a way! We need to understand that when God gives us something it’s not always related to materialistic or physical needs. We have been promised something even more precious, which is to Rest in His Presence.
To rest in His presence means to be at peace, to experience His love and to be filled with joy even in the midst of sorrow, trouble and fear. As mere humans, all we need at the end of the day is peace, and God assures us that, only in His presence.
After running errands all day long, I believe you and I need to peacefully rest in His presence, being rest assured that God is in control over everything and every situation. Let's be sure that without the presence of God, life is overshadowed by discouragement, disappointment and disaster.
Rest Is Essential To Overcome Every Struggle!
I encourage you to seek God and push yourself to be in His presence all throughout the day and for the rest of your lives. Be confirmed that God will give you the rest you need.
“Do not cast me away from your presence, and do not take your holy spirit from me.”
Psalms 51:11 NRSV
Prayer For Rest
“You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence; he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, or the arrow that flies by day, or the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your refuge, the Most High your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.”
Psalms 91:1-11 NRSV
It is so by Faith and by Faith so it is. AMEN❣
