Secure in God’s Presence

February 23, 2015

“My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Ex 33:14 NIV

Unless you spend time in God’s presence you will always have an underlying sense of insecurity. There are certain people we draw security from just by being around them; their presence and approach to life make us feel better. Likewise, when you need to be lifted and strengthened you must spend time with God. Being in His presence is like being in a room filled with perfume; you take the fragrance of it with you when you leave. Moses spent a great deal of time with God. He knew that without God’s presence he wasn’t worth two cents. Can you imagine being responsible for the daily care of two million people, getting them out of one country and into another—on foot? It’s mind-boggling. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, the Israelites spent much of their time complaining about their lot in life and finding fault with Moses. When things went wrong, he was their favorite target. It was an ideal situation for losing your mind. But God told Moses, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” God can give you rest in the midst of trouble, and peace in the midst of conflict. That includes a difficult workplace, or a home that’s in constant turmoil. God’s presence can help you to show love in the face of mistreatment, and patience in times of stress. It can help you to bring positive change without a lot of words, and end up feeling good about the way you handled things. So spend time in God’s presence today.
