“And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.” (Exodus 33: 14)
God spoke these words “face to face” to Moses as he was preparing to lead his people into freedom. This holy presence of God is a promise for us as well. God’s presence and present-ness, His qualities and power, accompany us in every place and at all times, whether into a humdrum regular day or into new challenges.
There is nothing we can do to escape His hand holding ours, His voice in our ears, His Life in the walk of our days and His Love expressed in and to and through our very being. God’s presence, His essence, His substance, is inseparable from us in every way and under every circumstance. We get the whole of Him and we get Him always and now.
This mighty atmosphere containing Truth, Life, and Love, is our rest from fear, from toil, from care. Because God is the very substance of our days, there is no confusion in them, no lack, nothing to fear. His intelligence and His conscientiousness is our trust, the reason that our own watch is natural and full of eagerness and joy. Our own work is only the expression of what He is and has already so wonderfully done. His presence is our glory and it is also our present and active and comforting and energizing peace today and every day.
