A Mountaintop Experience with God

By: Sarah Geringer

What if God called you to a mountaintop? Would you want to see Him, or would you be happy just listening to His voice?

In Exodus 34:1-35:9, Moses is on Mt. Sinai for the second time. God is inscribing a new set of stone tablets with the Ten Commandments and giving the Israelites a second chance at obedience.

Early in the morning, Moses met with God on the mountain. The Bible says God appeared in a pillar of cloud and called out His own name, "the LORD," as Moses stood in his presence.

Then God spoke these words:

"I am the LORD, the merciful and gracious God. I am slow to anger and rich in love and faithfulness."

Exodus 34:6 NLT

Moses immediately feel to the ground and worshiped.

This was the beginning of forty days up on the mountain with God. No food or drink. Moses came down from the mountain and glowed so much from being in God's presence that he had to wear a veil in front of the people so they wouldn't be afraid of him.

Can you imagine spending forty days alone with God, sustained by Him alone? Surely your life would be forever changed, and you'd be glowing with His glory.

Friend, you and I don't need to visit a mountain to immerse ourselves in God's presence. We can take a few minutes each day to be alone with Him, listening to His word and learning who He is. I challenge you to spend time in God's Word every day this week, basking in His loving presence.
