    Help From God, a Necessity

    Moses had learned that in order to prevail with the people, he must have help from God. He pleaded for an assurance of God's presence: “Now therefore, I pray Thee, if I have found grace in Thy sight, show me now Thy way, that I may know Thee, that I may find grace in Thy sight: and consider that this nation is Thy people.”EP 228.1

    The answer was, “My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.” But Moses was not yet satisfied. He prayed that the favor of God might be restored to His people and that the token of His presence might continue to direct their journeyings: “If Thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence. For wherein shall it be known here that I and Thy people have found grace in Thy sight? is it not in that Thou goest with us?”EP 228.2

    And the Lord said, “I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in My sight, and I know thee.” Still the prophet did not cease pleading. He now made a request that no human being had ever made before: “I beseech Thee, show me Thy glory.”EP 228.3
