His Abiding Presence

I told you that I recently got away overnight for a personal prayer retreat. During that time, God spoke something to me that I had never seen before. Most of us are familiar with the story of God’s glory becoming so strong upon Moses that his face literally glowed with the presence of the Lord. Moses put a veil over his face to keep from scaring people. Paul uses this symbolically in the N.T., telling us, “When one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away” (2 Cor. 3:16). What a wonderful idea that everything that has held us back from God can be removed! But here is what was new to me. This was not a one-time occurrence. Moses wore the veil in front of the people. But when he went back before the Lord, he took it off (Ex. 34:33-35). The supernatural glow was enhanced on each subsequent encounter with God. That is the reason we need to experience God’s presence on an on-going basis. In recent services, we have been enjoying fresh encounters with God. God is resurrecting some things. He has told us so. Too many people go to church, but they have little appetite for God’s presence. I pray that you will allow God to stir fresh in you in this season the desire to know His abiding presence. -Pastors Mark and Jennifer
