“Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may know you in order to find favor in your sight. Consider too that this nation is your people.” And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”” (Exodus 33:13-14)
At this point, Moses is having a conversation with God about the Israelites. They had gotten out of Egypt and Moses knew that they couldn’t get to the Promised Land if God wasn’t there with them. So he pleaded with God that wherever they go, that God was with them. God’s response to Moses reassured him that he would be with them. Not only that, but that he would give them rest.
There is a calm reassurance being with God. We can rest in Him knowing that He is in control. We can trust Him to lead us in the right direction when we follow Him. So this Labor Day Weekend, let us enjoy being with God and find rest in Him.
