In the Midst of it all.......
Today, like many days I looked up to admire the mountain view that God has blessed us with here. I love the fact that I can wake up and walk outside and see a beautiful mountain range with patch like works of tree lines. Each day is a different type of view depending on the cloud cover. Today was no different. However, as I looked up I began to think about Moses and his meetings of fellowship with our Lord. How he walked up to the top of the mountain and God covered him with his presence and put him in the midst so that no-one else could see. WOW! What a time that must have been for him. At the same time I start to think about what the people below were thinking. Maybe they were thinking; "what makes him so special" or "why is he the only one chosen". Really the fact of the matter is we all have the opportunities to spend time with God if we want it. We can have HIM in the good times or in the bad. We can have him on the mountain or in the valley. As I looked up at the misty range today...I could not help but think how God makes and wants each of us to feel loved and special and important. He covered Moses so no-one else could see....they had a private conversation. It is awesome to think about really. I am so grateful that the Lord loves me and wants to hear from me in the midst of everything that he has to deal with.
And the Lord came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the Lord called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up. Exodus 19:20
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.....my help cometh from the Lord. Psalms 121:1-2
