Discover the profound connection between set apart scripture and divine encounters.
Table of Contents
Welcome to today’s Bible devotional podcast, where we’ll explore the concept of “thin places” and how they remind us of God’s unique presence in our lives. Our inspiration for today comes from Exodus 33:12-23.
Exodus 33 – Set Apart Scripture
In this passage, Moses fervently seeks God’s presence as he leads the Israelites. He understands that God’s presence is what sets them apart from the nations around them. These moments, where the presence of God is tangible and real, are often referred to as “thin places.” These are times when the boundary between heaven and earth seems to blur, allowing us to experience the divine more intimately.
God’s Presence Sets Us Apart
Thin places can be a sunrise, the laughter of a child, or the stillness of a quiet forest. In these moments, we feel God’s presence and realize that we, too, are set apart as His people.
- Have you experienced a “thin place” in your life? How did it remind you of God’s unique presence and your role as one of His chosen people?
