The LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.
What an amazing Scripture! God is speaking to Moses as a friend. The plan of God has always been to have a people that He could walk with in the cool of the day. This is the type of relationship that Jesus bought for us through His blood on the cross. So in the midst of all of our activities, make sure to take time to quiet your soul and listen – you may be surprised by what you hear.
