Moses took the tent and....

Daily Word - Nov. 16, 2018

"Moses took the tent and pitched it outside the camp, a good distance from the camp, and he called the tent of meeting. Anyone seeking the Lord would go out to the tent of meeting outside

the camp." Exodus 33:7

After the golden calf incident in Exodus 32, the Lord was upset with the children of Israel. Moses therefore took a tent and set it outside the camp of Israel.

According to Jewish commentary he set it up about two thousand cubits (3 thousand feet) away from the camp. Moses (according to Jewish commentary) was exceedingly angry with the children

of Israel. Now understand the tabernacle that was to be built hadn't been built yet, (Exo. 35-39). It had only been commissioned by the Lord upon the mount during Moses' 40 days upon the mount. But when Moses came down from the mount he found the children

in rebellion.

Which brings us to this point. Moses set a tent outside the camp and called it "the tent of inquiry" by one translation. Any man that wanted to inquire of the Lord could go up to the tent

where Moses would commune with the Lord.

Sometimes God doesn't make himself convenient, only available. For some if there is any effort involved in the pursuit of the Lord you will never find him. Sometimes you have to "seek",

sometimes you have to "knock", sometimes you only have to "ask". But there are times when you have to do all three.

"And he shall seek me and find me, when ye shall seek me with all your heart." Jer. 29:13.
