In the Tent

Read Numbers 7:1–89

What would it feel like to be Moses? Would it be scary to enter a tent and hear God’s voice? How would such a voice sound? Moses had many unique experiences: his desire to make a difference, his mistakes, his dialogue with God, and his invitation to bring freedom to a nation that had been in bondage. Each of those occurrences would frighten many people. Entering the tent might be especially scary. The tent of meeting was a holy place Moses entered to speak with God.

When Moses entered the tent of meeting to speak with the Lord, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the atonement cover on the ark of the covenant law. In this way the Lord spoke to him (Numbers 7:89).

God spoke to Moses. And God still speaks, just as He spoke to Valentine—a third century Christian who emphasized marriage and was eventually martyred because he wanted to make a difference. God still speaks to those who will listen.

Thought for Today: On a day known as Valentine’s Day, the greatest love to remember is how a holy God embraces His people in everyday life.

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
