Inside the Tent of Meeting, the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Exodus 33:11a (NLT)
Even though we aim to live for God’s purposes, as sinners this side of heaven we still sometimes get off-track. This happens when we forget to stay in daily contact with God, or when we rely on our own strength to accomplish God’s purposes.
Thanks to God’s faithfulness, though, His Spirit will continue to speak to us, as to a friend, so as to return us to a faithful walk in the Spirit’s strength. Then God’s radiance will shine through our lives.
