I don't know about anyone else, but when I read something I don't understand (or if there seems to be no explanation or direct response), I enter a life-long quest for an answer! I want to know what "it" means. I wouldn't say I can't sleep or "it" keeps me up at night - but it remains in the back of my mind until the mystery is solved.
In the Bible, it is written that God spoke with Moses "face to face". Yet, it also states that no one can live if they see the face of God. For me, that created confusion. So yesterday morning, while entering my quiet time (with no definate plan of study), HE showed me the answer! How cool is that! I can't help but think it was because I was faithful; I was tired and didn't feel like being disciplined and reading His Word, so He provided this amazing answer!
In the Book of Numbers, Chapter 12, Miriam and Aaron oppose Moses; due to his marriage to a Cushite. The LORD heard them and summoned all three to the Tent of Meeting, where He came down in a pillar of cloud. He summoned Miriam and Aaron forward and this was His response:
6“When there is a prophet among you,
I, the LORD, reveal myself to them in visions,
I speak to them in dreams.
7 But this is not true of my servant Moses;
he is faithful in all my house.
8 With him I speak face to face,
clearly and not in riddles;
he sees the form of the LORD.
OH MY GOSH! It mean's He doesn't speak in riddles to Moses - He tells him exactly as it is! I LOVE THAT!!!! I am finally at rest....
