Exodus 33 – The Presence of God

“Moses said to the Lord, “Look, You have told me, ‘Lead this people up,’ but You have not let me know whom You will send with me. You said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.’  Now if I have indeed found favor in Your sight, please teach me Your ways, and I will know You and find favor in Your sight. Now consider that this nation is Your people.”  Then He replied, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”  “If Your presence does not go,” Moses responded to Him, “don’t make us go up from here.”
