“So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by,” (Exodus 33:22, Holy Bible, New King James). Eavesdrop on this scene. God and Moses are conversing after he broke the stone tablets in his frustration with the Israelites under his charge. Moses asking God to journey with the huge entourage needs a new confirmation (verse 18). He says, “…show me Your glory.” God’s agrees but tells Moses “…no man shall see Me, and live” (verse 20). God shielded Moses and gave him a partial view of His glory. The magnificence of God hovers nearby, but you must first be willing to be hidden in a crevice, a protected place, before God eclipses you with His overwhelming presence.
Prayer: Lord, I’m waiting in the shadows, ready to experience Your magnificent presence. Amen.
