When Moses entered the tent of meeting to speak with the Lord, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the atonement cover on the ark of the covenant law. In this way the Lord spoke to him. Numbers 7:89
Communication is extremely important between two or more people. It is how people can understand each other and allow each other to know what is expected. This is done by talking and listening to each other.
In order to be able to communicate, one must be in the same area or have some means to bring them together, such as a cell phone.
Moses would enter the tent of meeting to hear God speak to him before the ark of the covenant law.
During the time of Moses, it was only Moses and the high priests that could go in before the ark of the covenant to speak and listen to God. If anyone else was to enter that area, he would be killed by God. Jesus tore that veil down, opening the way directly to God.
Since Jesus tore that veil down believers have direct access to God any time of the day or night. However, the believer must be willing to go in before God to speak with Him and listen to Him.
This new place is not a physical place, but a change of heart and mental focus. Instead of physically going somewhere, the believer must now take his focus off of the here and now and focus upon God in prayer.
Taking time to pray is a sacrifice. It means that one must let go of what is immediately trying to capture his attention and placing it upon God alone. The value of doing this is found in hearing God speak and guide the believer in life.
As a believer, you have direct access to God no matter the time of day or night. He is waiting for you to come to Him so that He can talk with you and guide you in how to live this life on earth He has given you.
Do not allow the things and cares of this world get in the way of spending time with God. Enter into the private place of prayer with God. Tell Him what is on your heart and listen to what He has to say.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will regularly spend time in prayer with God; that you will hear God’s voice and direction in your life; and that you will obey God’s commands to you.
