Loving His Presence

Recently I was reading in Exodus 33 and came across a verse that really resonated with me and I felt it was a word to DSC.  In the story Moses is talking to God about leading the people of Israel and making sure that God would be with them.  Moses tells God that He must be with them because…

  • Exodus 33:16 (NLT) 16 How will anyone know that you look favorably on me—on me and on your people—if you don’t go with us? For your presence among us sets your people and me apart from all other people on the earth.”

 I love that last part – “your presence among us sets us apart…”

That has been my prayer for DSC – that God’s presence will be evident among us and that His presence will set us apart.  We are not just striving for good programs and well planned events (we still do those) but more than those things we want the presence of God among us.
