Resting in God

by | Sep 20, 2023 | Vital Life Application Devotions

Exodus 33:9-11 And it came to pass, when Moses entered the tabernacle, that the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the LORD talked with Moses. All the people saw the pillar of cloud standing at the tabernacle door, and all the people rose and worshiped, each man in his tent door. So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tabernacle.


It’s in abiding in God’s presence that God speaks to us. But how do we continually abide in God’s presence? How do we take His presence into every area of our lives—our every day lives?

When you spend time in God’s presence His character comes through in our attitudes, and in the way we think about things, and how we respond to people, and the way we handle situations. In this way, we are being transformed, and as a result, we are able to take His presence with us wherever we may go.

Above all other things in our lives, including service to the Lord, we need to be living in God’s presence. Sometimes we can get so busy ‘doing’ that we neglect just ‘being’ in God’s presence. For it’s out of being in God’s presence that we can hear God speak, and inspiration can flow, creativity can flow and service can flow. But it’s firstly coming into God’s presence, and daily walking in it, before we have this ‘outflow’.

God longs to have this fellowship with us. But sometimes we feel ashamed or unworthy, so we hide from Him. We may feel as though we have no time in our busy schedule to spend time just basking in God’s presence. God wants us to put off all these ‘hindrances’ and ‘excuses’ to just commune with Him.

So why don’t you choose today, and every day, to abide in God’s presence—despite how you feel. You will all be better off for it!
