The Bible is filled with images of God's desire for a personal relationship with individuals. Exodus 33:7-12 is a powerful account of God meeting with Moses as he leads the people toward the Promised Land.
As Moses went into the tent, the pillar of cloud would come down and stay at the entrance, while the Lord spoke with Moses. The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks with His friend. -Exodus 33:9,11
Wherever the nation of Israel camped, a special tent served as a place where Moses would meet with God. Whenever Moses entered the tent, a cloud symbolizing God's presence came down and stayed at the entrance.
MOSES WENT TO MEET GOD...
GOD WENT TO MEET MOSES.
God truly desires to walk with us in our daily lives. Intimacy with God is a relationship in which you come to know Him on a deep and personal level, similar to the kind of relationship you might have with a best friend.
True friendship dispels fear and insecurity as friends share unconditional love and commitment. Moses’ friendship with God was not a distant connection, but a close, intimate, personal relationship.
