Moses’ Mountain Experience

(Begin with 1-2 minutes of silence)

Exodus 34:29 …Moses wasn’t aware that his face had become radiant because he had spoken to the LORD.

All throughout the Scriptures, we read about significant events occurring on top of mountains. One such event occurred in the Old Testament when Moses went to the top of Mount Sinai. While there, God Himself wrote out the Old Testament law into two stone tablets. When Moses came down from the mountain carrying these tablets, he was unaware that his face was radiant because He had spoken directly to the LORD. 

Once again, a principle we can glean from this passage is that being with God has an impact. The primary goal of the Christian life is one of ongoing, continual union with God. After experiencing this for an extended period of 40 days, Moses very appearance had changed. 

Throughout your lifetime, you will experience sacred moments with God in a number of ways. Some may be in a church or Group setting. But many, perhaps the majority, will come from you taking opportunities to be with God and enter into His presence. The more time you spend being with Him, the more others will see Him within you. 


     EXODUS 34:29-35, EXODUS 40:34-38 (also read the commentary notes in your Study Bible of choice.)

QUESTION: While your appearance may not become radiant, the more time you spend being with God, the more others will see Him within you. What is one thing you can remove from your life today so you can have more time to be with God? 

REAL LIFE PRACTICE: Continue to live your life at the pace of your soul. Slow down in order to catch up to the pace in which God created you to live. 

Take a Step: Remember to continue utilizing the One Minute Pause app throughout the week. If possible, begin to explore and practice the 3, 5 or 10 minute pause to more deeply root yourself in Christ.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I recognize there are dozens, if not hundreds of small decisions I make every day, many of which take time away from my ability to spend time with You. Once again, I pray that You will continue to help me slow down and embrace the moments I have with You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
