“As my glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by” (Exodus 33:22 NLT).


God agreed to show Moses His glory, but had to hide him in the cleft of a rock so he wouldn’t die. Whenever I read this passage, I always find myself singing, “Rock of Ages, cleft for me. Let me hide myself in Thee.” Whatever Moses saw, it must have been amazing because even those who saw Moses’ face later were struck with awe and fear. The mere residual reflection of God’s glory on Moses’ face was so awesome that he had to wear a veil.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, like Moses we would ask to see Your glory manifest in our lives. We know that Jesus is the supreme revelation of Your glory to us. Yet, we would have more of Him reflected in us. As we begin this day, let others see Jesus in us. As we with “unveiled faces” (2 Cor. 3:18) consider the ever-increasing glory that awaits those who will spend eternity with You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
