Then he said to Him, If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here – Exodus 33:15.
In this passage of scripture, Moses is speaking to God after a command has come out to say that he and the children of Israel must leave Sinai and go to the promise land. What’s important to note in the passage is the fact that upon hearing that the presence of God will not depart with them, Moses goes to the tabernacle to pray. He did that because he understood the significance of having the presence of God in one’s life and the dangers that come with living a life without His presence. It is very important that we as Christians, as we walk in our calling and in our Christian walk generally, we yearn for the presence of God to never depart from us.
We often face distractions and struggles in our calling and walk with God because we tend to do things without taking consideration of whether or not the presence of God is in what we do. We ought to understand that we are not supposed to do/say anything minus the presence of God. God should be involved in each and everything that we do, no matter how small or insignificant that thing may appear to be.
My servant Moses is faithful in all my house. I speak with him face to face, even plainly, and not in dark sayings; and he sees the form of the Lord [Numbers 12:7-8a]. This is the kind of relationship that we must have with our Father. To have Him speak face to face, even plainly with us. This would ensure that whatever we do/say is in alignment with the will of God and our calling. This would make our walk in Christianity the easiest and the most enjoyable one.
