Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Exodus 33:7 – 34:28 & Psalm 103
When he was travelling with the refugees from Egypt to their promised land, Moses took care to set up a tent of meeting where he could ‘come away’ from the people and their issues and pray in the nearer presence of God. This gave him the perspective, strength and wisdom to continue to live out his life’s calling and lead the Israelites. When I, like Moses, take time and place to meet with God, I too find that “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” Time spent with Father God, enfolded in his compassion and mercy, strengthens and inspires me to continue to fulfill his calling within my own life. Let me let you embrace me with your steadfast love, O Lord.
Let your face shine on your servant. Save me in your merciful love. (Psalm 31:6)
