God’s Presence Gives Us Rest


Daily Prayer USA

And He said, “My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.”  Exodus 33:14(ESV)

Words of God spoken to Moses.

Moses has a lengthy talk with God. He seeks God’s help in understanding his role in this journey.

God tells him that he (Moses) will not be alone in this part of the journey. God would be with Moses throughout the journey.

Moses responds in a forthright comment, “If Your presence will not go with me, do not bring us up from here.” (Verses15-16) Moses knows he cannot lead the nation by himself, In fact, it sounds like if God isn’t with him, Moses asks God not to take the people any farther.

In our present day lives, we sometimes need reassurance that God’s presence is with us as we travel through this life. Each of us has faced, is facing, or will face times when we doubt that we can go on without God being with us. When we ask Him to accompany us through those hard times, He guides us through them.

David said it in Psalm 23:4;

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

No matter how tough the circumstance, God is there with each of us. Because of His love for us.


  1. Amen, Cecelia! I couldn't go a step forward without knowing God is with me all the way.

    1. Martha Jane: I love this passage; I have times I need the assurance that God is with me when I begin an activity. God leads His children where He wants them to be, Peace and blessings to you and yours.

  2. Amen! If God is not with us on this journey, then I don't know how we could take another step. I am so thankful for God's presence in my life every single moment. I don't know how people who don't believe in Him can manage at all. Thank you for this today. It is good to be reminded that God is always with us in our journey of life.

  3. Pam: This is true of all of those who know God and strive to serve Him. He looks out for us and guides us when we are faced with issues we can't handle by ourselves. Peace and blessings to you and yours,


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
