Let us have a conversation together, says God.
Put aside distractions, set down what is in your hand.
I want to mull some things over with you, I want to hear your inner thoughts and I want you to hear my inner thoughts. I yearn to give you a window on my world and to share with you my perspective on your situation.
So please come and sit and let us chat back and forwards. Let us have a conversation.
I come to sit and talk as a man speaks with his friend. I am on your side completely. Do not fear this request, but know that I have some hidden treasure that I want you to hear that are crucial for the next stage of your journey.
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.
