Each time Moses left the camp to go to the tent of meeting, the people would stand at the entrance of their tents to watch him as he passed by. Now, this is a guy who was facing some major mountains. He had enemies to fight, battles to win, and a nation to lead. And as he walked out of the camp, there had to be a million things on his mind.
But despite all his responsibilities, Moses left all these distractions behind to go to the tent of meeting and spend time in the presence of the Lord.
The Hebrew word for "face" (vs 11a) symbolizes not just someone's appearance, but also the very essence of who that person is.
Moses did not simply seek the hand of God; he sought to know God.
This time of fasting hasn’t merely been about getting an answer but about drawing closer to God than ever before.
If we are going to see battles won and mountains moved, it will be our nearness to God that makes all the difference!
As we finish these 21 days, if we have made it our goal to get closer to Him,
we will see mountain.
SHIFT THE ATMOSPHERE:
Here we are - Day 21, and at the end of this prayer and fasting series.
There is not, however, ever an end to how deeply we can press into God, nor to the abundance found in being so near to Him. Keep stewarding what you have developed between you and the Father, and cultivate a heart for diving even deeper into everything He desires of the brilliant destiny He has laid out for you! Let's each aim to be carriers of the scent of His Presence on us that lingers and draws seekers to Him.
Take some time to read back over your journal, or reflect on these last 21 days. Changes are high that you are changed, and circumstances, relationships, atmospheres have begun to shift since you began. Share as you feel comfortable below - we want to stand and praise with you! Let's keep connected - and reach out to us if you are currently seeking community.
Let's keep the momentum going - let's bring the shift through bold and persistent prayer into the atmosphere, paving the way for Kingdom to come, and delight alongside Jesus as we celebrate the harvest come in!
You are the right person, in the right place, at the right time! You were born for, and are here, for such a time as this!
