Presence before purpose or plan

Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place.” Ex. 33:16  [Jesus said] “But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.” Luke 24:49

The only plan the disciples in the upper room had was to wait for the Holy Spirit. Moses wasn’t about to budge until He sensed God’s personal presence. We can get caught up in purpose and planning and fail to recognize or enjoy God’s personal presence. Fully and continually experiencing God’s presence is the purpose and plan.

Lord, help me to be with You and in You before trying to do anything for You.
