A Tent of Meeting by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/11/11

“Every time I start to go in and read my Bible, or I want to spend some time with the Lord in prayer, the phone starts ringing. I mean, how do they know? By the time I finish, it’s time to start dinner! As to my Bible time—it’s out the door.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Sometimes, in order to focus on God, we need to get away from all the distractions. Exodus 33 tells us that Moses used to take a tent and pitch it outside the camp some distance away, calling it the “tent of meeting.”

This tent was away from the normal flow of traffic. It was a place set apart for meeting with God. We all need a tent of meeting—a place where we can spend some undistracted time in God’s Word and prayer. Your tent of meeting may be in a bathroom, a closet, the hallway, or your car. The important thing is that you find a place where you can meet with Him alone.

Starting tomorrow, where could you meet with God alone—away from the distractions?
