What marks us other than the very presence of God?

When Moses intereceded on Israel’s behalf in Exodus 33, he told God he would not move any farther unless the presence of God went with them.

“For how shall it be known that I have found favor in your sight, I and your people? Is it not in your going with us, so that we are distinct, I and your people, from every other people on the face of the earth?” (Ex. 33:16, ESV)

It is being the people of the presence of God that separates us from all others. We should not live lives satisfied with moving on without the presence and blessings of God. We should be obstinate, like Moses! If we sense God is not directing, we need to hold off until we know what HE is up to in our lives!

What distinguishes US from all other people on this earth?
