“And when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance. Then they said to Moses, ‘Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, or we will die’”
God drew near, showing Israel His glory, and out of fear Israel backed away. They were content to follow a man rather than their God. The same is still true for too many of us today. We will rely upon our churches and pastors to lead us, but are unwilling or unable to find God for ourselves. Nevertheless, Jesus pursues a relationship with each of us if we are but willing to seek Him out. Let me show you the journey God has taken me on to find that He is nearer than I ever believed.
