Today brought me to the end of week 9 in my study, A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place, by Beth Moore. Today saw the conclusion of the building of the tabernacle and the very presence of God moving in.
34 Then the cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 35 Moses could not enter the Tent of Meeting because the cloud had settled upon it, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
36 In all the travels of the Israelites, whenever the cloud lifted from above the tabernacle, they would set out; 37 but if the cloud did not lift, they did not set out—until the day it lifted. 38 So the cloud of the LORD was over the tabernacle by day, and fire was in the cloud by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel during all their travels. Exodus 40:34-38 (NIV)
Can you imagine? What must they have thought? How must they have felt?
As I sat and contemplated this, I began to think about the fact that His presence dwells with me today. Right now, at this very moment, as I sit and type, He is with me. The very presence of God Almighty Himself.
This morning, I experienced a renewed sense of awe and wonderment. I am humbled. I am filled with gratitude. With love. With joy. I could not help but fall to my knees and weep. My eyes are filling now.
It is a relationship. A love like none I have ever known.
If you don’t know Him, you can. He wants you to. All you need do is ask. It’s not difficult. He loves you and accepts you just as you are right now, this very minute.
