“And the Lord said, My Presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.” (Exodus 33: 14, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)
God gave Moses this assurance. As this man led his people, he would be accompanied by the very presence of God. Moses would have that Spirit of Truth, Life, and Love with him at all points. The embracing goodness, the wisdom, and the protection would always be at hand.
And God also promised Moses that he and his people would gain rest. All the journeying and the growing in understanding; all their conscious listening, following, and obeying; the work and the exploration and the progress out of bondage, would bring more than God’s pleasure. It would bring peace. God would reveal the liberty that also includes freedom of mind. God’s presence meant Moses and His people could release their cares, settle down, trust, and truly find rest.
Let’s recognize that this divine promise is for each of us. God is always with us, fully and attentively. His Love and His Life are ours to know and express at every moment, and to feel not only guided and encouraged, but also to experience the gift of comfort and rest that this reliance must bring.
