When Moses was struggling to lead Israel into the Promise Land, he cried out to God, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here…. Please, show me Your glory” (Exodus 33:15, 18 NKJV). The Lord said to Moses, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock” (v. 21 NKJV)
The invitation is still extended. God is right where He has always been, waiting on you and me to come stand beside Him. God’s Word also challenges us to stand up and stand down, stand in and stand out, stand with and stand alone… and to stand in many other ways.
