The Presence of God

In the 34th chapter of Exodus, we see where Moses spent some serious time in the presence of God. As a result, his physical appearance changed (V.29). If we claim to have been in the presence of the Lord, can anyone tell? What has changed about us?

It is impossible to experience the presence of God and remain the same. Something has got to be different. Maybe it starts out as something internal, but it should eventually manifest into a physical change if we continually get into God's presence. We are to be peculiar (different). If people can't see that something is different about you, perhaps you should evaluate your relationship with God. Ask Him to show you His glory. Of course, your flesh will not be admitted into God's presence, so you will first have to die to "self" before you can enter that secret place.

If you are hung up on your title, your position, your clique, or yourself in general, you will remain on the outside looking in. There is no greater joy than that you receive in the presence of the Lord. Give up on you, and allow God to have His way in you. I promise you won't regret it!
