We’re finishing up week four with Priscilla Shirer, reading One in a Million: Journey to Your Promised Land. Our lesson today is about seeing God, as He reveals Himself so we will trust Him. We read through the passages of Exodus 19:10-13 in today’s lesson and saw a demonstration of how God reveals Himself. Believing God would come, the people did as Moses instructed, and they demonstrated their faith. As we continue to read in Exodus 19:16-18, we learn that God did not appear as a human, rather He appeared in supernatural formation.
On page 100, Priscilla asks what you would do if God appeared to you, run towards Him or run away from Him.
After reading today’s lesson, you learn the difference between a healthy fear of God and an unhealthy fear of God. Priscilla ends the lesson saying “the more clearly God comes into view, the more humbled and in awe of Him you should grow.” Are you prepared for a visit from your Father, the King?
Father, we are humbled by Your presence and Your attention. May each of us be prepared to hear and see You, as You come to us in love. We bow down in your presence, honored before our King. Thank you Lord, for loving us and reaching out to us. Amen.

- God did not display His glory on the mountain so they would run from Him, but so they would run to Him.
