Exodus 16:10 “And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud.”
Glory of the Lord or “kevod Yehoveh”, this is the same cloud, the expression of the presence of God, that had been leading them and had protected them from Pharaoh’s army.
Why did Moses have to tell these people to stop, look up, and come-near to God’s presence? Because, while God’s presence is available to us and we must choose to “come-near” to Him.
Following YHWH (Yeshua) is a choice we have to make on a daily basis. He wants our relationship to ‘on purpose’.
Many times we hear “believers” say things like “it’s all in Gods timing” and “I am just waiting to hear from God”.
Have you ever considered that the Father is doing the same with you? He is waiting to hear from you, He is waiting to see if you put time into His word.
John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God.”
Notice too, He wants us to have a daily portion not to gorge ourselves on one day and then take six days off.
