Exodus 33:14 And He said, “My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Okay, so if God is unchanging (He is) and if what God declares is truth (it is), then what He said to Moses all those centuries ago rings true in our hearts today as well. If people are feeling unrest right now (we are), then I get the sense that we need to learn, and keep on learning, what God’s presence really means, how deep it really goes, and in that depth is where we find our rest, come what may. Tall order for the average human being who likes to rely on securities we can grasp with our five senses – but didn’t Jesus come to earth to solidly connect those five senses with the seeming abstractness of the Spirit; and isn’t our true “rest” in that relationship!
