Something Learnt Last Night

Principle 3

God reveals Himself most for those who are willing and who obediently go up the mountain alone. (In reference to Moses often ascending the mountain alone to speak with God)

"Sometimes God wants us to work alone with Him, that we may trust Him and not other people. However, this is hard and it takes courage."
Mount Sinai, or to be more exact, what is today thought to be Mount Sinai. 2285m high. Which is not very high actually. But going up alone?
These were the conditions:
"On the morning of the third day there was thunder and lightning, with a thick cloud over the mountain, and a very loud trumpet blast. Everyone in the camp trembled. Then Moses led the people out of the camp to meet with God and they stood at the foot of the mountain. Mount sinai was covered with smoke, because the Lord descended on it in fire. The smoke billowed up from it like smoke from a furnace, the whole mountain trembled violently, and the sound of the trupet grew louder and louder. Then Moses spoke and the voice of God answered him.
The Lord descended to the top of Mount Sinai and called Moses to the top of the mountain..." Exocus 19:16-20

"Do we do what we do out of love and obedience for God? Or do we do it for friends? What could God be asking you to do alone today?"
Imagine the approximately 2 million strong Israelite nation camping here, while 1X Moses goes up alone.
