With a Friend

October 29, 2010 Donna New

I’m experiencing right now that friends don’t always agree. Discussion is necessary to weed out the answer to the dilemma. Not harsh argument, just reasoning together is what’s needed. The Lord said, “Come let us reason together…”  so not only do we reason with each other but we reason with the Lord.

Moses reasoned with the Lord. Exodus 33:11 says “And the Lord spoke to Moses face to face as a man speaks to his friend.” There’s a great song that says “I am a friend of God…” and we can’t take that lightly. God reveals Himself to us and that makes us a friend of His. But He is holy and we are unworthy to be called His friend except by the sacrifice of His Son. The Lord paid a precious price to be able to call us friends.

In Exodus 33:13-19 Moses reasons with God because God is ready to let the Israelites go on their own. He had reached His limit with them. But Moses interceded for them and God heard Him and said ”My Presence will go with you.” Moses told God…You don’t go, I don’t go. Moses wasn’t leaving his Friend.

Then Moses asked to see God’s glory. Can you imagine feeling comfortable enough with God to ask Him face to face to experience His glory? So God did show Moses the back of His glory. We can’t see the face of His glory and live. During the conversation God says I will show mercy…and I will show lovingkindness… They must be part of His glory. When we show mercy and lovingkindness I wonder if we don’t glow a little too.
