The below two verses caught my attention. I’ve been meditating on these a lot more lately…
“Thus the LORD used to speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. When Moses turned again into the camp, his assistant Joshua the son of Nun, a young man, would not depart from the tent.” Exodus 33:11
“…and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying.” -Luke 2:37
Both the young assistant and the widow were not people with big ministry but all they did was stay in His presence. Their attraction was not the ministry but the Master. They were ready to serve but they were found loving Him first.
In this busy and distractive life can we do the same by staying in His presence day and night?
The Lord desires to have a face to face encounter with His children. We have an option to either be servants who love Him or lovers of God who serve Him.
There is nothing greater in this world than meeting Jesus face to face. Let’s renew our desire to have an encounter with our Master!
