In the world but not of it

The LORD spoke to him from there. Numbers 7:89

Moses did all that God instructed. The Lord had given Moses specific instructions on building the temple, performing the ceremonies and handling the anointed and most holy elements before him.

The Lord then spoke to Moses from the most holy place, the mercy seat between the two cherubim of the Ark of the Covenant. This is where God spoke to Moses and this is where the Lord also speaks to us, in the most holy place. But how is that possible since we don’t go to the temple. In Hebrews 4:16 we are told “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most”.

We know from the events of the day when Jesus was crucified and when He breathed His last that “at that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom” (Matthew 27:51)…

And so we have an audience with our Lord anytime we want it. We have access to Him from our bedroom or the boardroom. We can sit with the Father and He will speak to us there, wherever “there” is for us.

People often say they don’t hear God speaking to them and they interpret that as having to go church or a bible study. While it is true that we must be in church, it is not our physical location that dictates whether God speaks to us or not but rather our spiritual location. In other words, God can speak to us anywhere assuming we are taking the time to be still and quiet before Him, with His word and our hearts open, to listen…

A truth shared from a godly man of old was “if you wake up tomorrow and don’t feel close to God guess who moved”…
