Intimate with God By Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/13/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When you develop a consistent devotional life, you’re becoming intimate with your Heavenly Father—kind of like Moses. In Exodus 24, God invited Aaron and his two sons, along with seventy elders of Israel, to come up on a mountain to “worship at a distance.”

It was an incredible opportunity. But their leader, Moses, was closer to God. The Bible says that he spoke to God “face to face, as a man speaks with his friend.”

Are you like someone who’s never been on the mountain—never experienced God’s presence? Are you like one of the elders—seeing God, but keeping a safe distance away? Or are you like Moses—getting to know God deeply, like a friend?

Through the blood of Christ, God invites us to draw near to Him. Through His Word and prayer, our relationship with God can grow deeper every day. What’s standing between you and true intimacy with God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
