MEETING WITH GOD IS OUR JOY AND PRIVILEGE.
What a joy it is to know that we can have a relationship with the Lord. In that relationship, we can talk to Him (prayer) and He can speak to us. We can spend time together with our Saviour and know and feel His presence in our lives. In Exodus 19, we see how Moses would have regular interaction and he would meet with God. Moses would speak to Him, and He would speak to Moses. It was during these times that the Lord handed down His instructions and plans to Moses, and through him, to the nation of Israel. Because of what Christ has done, we too can have a relationship with the Lord. The way has been opened, the veil has been torn and we can enter in and have fellowship with the Lord.
Exodus 19:3 (TLB) ‘Moses climbed the rugged mountain to meet with God…’
I love the phrase: ‘To meet with God!’ As you read these notes, may you discover the joy and privilege of meeting with Him!
GOD DESIRES TO MEET WITH US EVEN MORE THAN WE DESIRE TO MEET WITH HIM!
Man was created by the Lord to have relationship and fellowship with Him. We were created to bring glory to God and to enjoy Him forever. We were also created to ‘enjoy Him forever’ and this speaks of an ongoing relationship. God’s love for us and His desire for relationship with us, precedes our love and desire for relationship with Him.
1 John 4:19‘We love Him because He first loved us.’
God stepped out into creation and created man, and the whole purpose was fellowship, interaction, and relationship, based on love.
1 John 4:10‘And love consists in this: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.’
When Moses went up the mountain to meet with God, the Lord was already there, waiting for him.
Exodus 19:3 (TLB) ‘Moses climbed the rugged mountain to meet with God, and from somewhere in the mountain God called to him…’
I believe that God is calling to you today. He is saying: ‘Come up here, I want to spend time with you, I want to know you and be known by you!’
Exodus 19:4 (TLB) ‘You have seen… how I brought you to Myself as though on eagles’ wings.’
He is drawing you today, to Himself, so that you can know a living, vital, relationship with Him. Do not hold back, go up and meet with Him for yourself!
