Good morning.


Moses had a special relationship with God. "The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend." (Exodus 33:11) This relationship was so special that Moses could say to God, "Now show me your glory.” (Exodus 33:18)


What happens when the glory of the Lord comes?


The presence of God brings change. We cannot stay the same. In Exodus 34:34-35 we see a visible change takes place.


When Jesus came, "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14)


We read about this grace and truth in Exodus 34:6-7

• Grace - the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.

• Truth - He does not leave the guilty unpunished


People often want grace but do not want the truth .


• The presence of God is not shared with other gods. (1 Samuel 5:1-4)

• The presence of God is not a lucky charm (1 Samuel 4:1-11)

• The presence of God does not bring familiarity with Him (1 Samuel 6:19-20a)


As we seek God's presence, allow Him to bring change in our lives.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
