Scripture of The Day 5/5/2022
Anyone inquiring of the Lord would go to the tent. (Exodus 33:7)
Moses did something we need to do: “Moses used to take a tent and pitch it outside the camp some distance away, calling it the ‘tent of meeting’. Anyone inquiring of the Lord would go to the tent.” (Ex 33:7) And what would happen in that tent? “The lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks with his friend.” Face time with God! That’s what you need. Turn off the your mobile phone. Sell your TV and buy a tent. God has your answer.
And what did they talk about in that tent? Moses prayed: (a) ” Let me know whom you will send with me.” Some of the problems you’re experiencing are because of the people who are influencing you. (b) “Teach me your ways.” You say your way of doing things doesn’t seem to be working too well. Get God input! (c) “So I may know you.” This word “know” is not a casual acquaintance; it’s intimacy between two people. How well do you know God? (d) “So I may continue to find favor with you.” God’s favor…you have got to have it! It opens doors, gives you the advantage, and influences people before you speak a word. And what did God say back to Moses in that tent? “I will do the very thing you have asked because I am pleased with you and I know you by name.” How would you like to be on a first name basis with God? Buy a tent! (Ex. 33:7-17)
