The phone will ring and a little voice on the other end asks, ” Lola, can we talk?”
“Ok…we call you back!”
And in a few minutes I am engaged in what even little Graham knows is the next best thing to being right in the same room … Face Time!
One night we ate our dinner together.
I watched him watch his show.
Because it’s all about being together.
Moses knew that when he told God there was no way he could go on if God didn’t go with him….
In Exodus 33:11 we are told that Moses had FaceTime with God.
“The Lord would speak to Moses face to face as one speaks to a friend.” NIV
At one point, Moses asked several times for the assurance that God would go with them as they wandered around the desert – how else would people know that they belonged to Him. And even after God assured him, Moses repeated his request.
Jesus promised to be with us always to the end of the age.
And sometimes, often…I wish I could have that Face Time by sight and not by faith.
Like Graham, I want that tangible, visual PRESENCE….
But you and I walk by faith and not by sight…
Rest assured today, if you have asked Jesus Christ into your heart….His Presence is WITH YOU….so talk to Him, be near Him, believe that He is there…because He is <3
