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.
