January 29 "God Gives Rest" Exodus 33_35
"My Presence shall go with you; and I will give you rest." Exodus 33:14. The original Hebrew left off "with you." Moses, along with each of us, needs confirmation if this is a promise for the person or the people. God assures. He will give rest in the midst of pressing perplexities and he will give rest to the present people, then and today. I could live with this verse tucked in the pillow of my heart every night. Sweet dreams. Sleep in peace knowing His Presence comes; His Rest is real. Am I really finding rest from the demands of my day as the sun closes Sunday. What does it look like in my life to be at rest?
PHOTO: It's the place where I go to pray day in, day out. The place where I work. My Rest is in Him not in solving perplexities, not in connecting with a person or place.
