God’s Presence

Memory Verse

“Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee: for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.” Exodus 33:3

Text: Exodus 33:1-8.

The Children of Israel were led through difficult ways on their journey to the Promised Land. They overcame their various enemies and problems through the counsel and the power of God Almighty. All they needed were also supplied. God’s presence with them was indeed the greatest treasure they had. In our text today however, the Lord sent Moses to tell them that He would no longer go with them in their journey.
This was indeed very sorrowful news for them. God created us to live in His presence. By this we receive His fullness of peace, protection, guidance and direction for life, victory over satanic powers and plans, righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
God gave the reason why He could not go with the people of Israel anymore. It was because of their stubbornness. How is your personal friendship with God? Have you been living in sin and disobedience to His word? Do you seem to feel that He is far away from you because of your sin? To make personal and lively fellowship with God possible again, Jesus came to save from sin.
(Matthew 1:21). Settle this with God and put your faith in Christ. If you have been saved from sin, but sometimes don’t feel God near you, it may be because of unbelief. Put your trust in God and His promises, rather than your feelings.
