You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need]. My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence) Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word]. Psalm 27:8 (Amplified Bible) In Exodus, chapter 33, Moses meets with God on the mountain. He has just delivered them out of bondage in Egypt and has prepared the Ten Commandments for His people. God wanted to provide them with a better way of life. That is the beauty of God’s instruction and His design for us to live a righteous life – He promises a better life, a better hope – than what the world can offer. Verse 14 says, And Moses said to the Lord, If Your Presence does not go with me, do not carry us up from here! In verse 13, Moses asks the Lord to show him who He is – that I may know You. Moses desired the Presence of the Lord in His life – he wanted to know Him.
