IN THE CLEFT OF THE ROCK

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 May 2024

Joshua 1:9
‘Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you.’

SCRIPTURE READING:

Exodus 33:21-23Then the LORD said, ‘There is a place near Me where you may stand on a rock. When My glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove My hand and you will see My back; but My face must not be seen.’

THERE IS A PLACE FOR YOU CLOSE TO GOD
Exodus 33:21Then the LORD said, ‘There is a place near Me…’

Moses had a desire and a request. His desire was to experience God in all His glory and to see and experience the glory of God firsthand for himself.

Exodus 33:18Then Moses said, ‘Now show me Your glory.’

As the Lord began to speak to Moses He tells him, or reminds him, of a place where there was the possibility of knowing the closeness of God. It may have been a place where Moses had often gone to pray or speak with God – the scripture does not give us exact clarity on the location. Perhaps it was a place that Moses was familiar with. The truth of the matter was that there was probably a place or a position, or certain conditions where Moses could experience the closeness of God. The Lord longs to make Himself real to each one of us. He has prepared a place for you that is close to Him. He does not desire that we would experience Him as being afar off. There are things, like sin, which can separate us from God, but there is also a place where we can find ourselves in right-standing with Him, where His presence can be real, perhaps almost tangible. There is a place near to God for you!
