My Presence will go with you

Cantabile – John Weston

Why do you complain that He answers none of Your words?

For God does speak, again and again,
though people may not recognize it.

He speaks in dreams and visions of the night,
and whispers in their ears
to turn them from wrongdoing;
and to keep them from pride.

I weep
and you are too blind to see

but I will always draw near
to the one who most desires
to feel as I feel
and to see as I see.

“If we are faithful in little things, we will also be faithful in larger ones.
But if we are untrustworthy in small matters, and in worldly wealth,
who will trust us with greater responsibilities and true spiritual riches?

In great distress Moses cried out,

“Lord, If your Presence does not go with us,
do not send us up from here.

How will anyone know that you are pleased with me
and with your people unless you go with us?

The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

In the book of Job, Elihu declared:
I sinned and twisted the truth,
perverting what was right,
but I soon discovered that it was not worth it.

God delivered me
from going down to the pit,
He shone His light into my life,
not once but many times,

and He does these things again and again,
to turn people back from the pit,
so that we may enjoy the light of life.
