As Bekah and I read through the book of Exodus in the fall, this verse stood out to me. God had directed Moses to take His people into the Promised Land, and Moses pled with the Lord for direction, and for assurance that he had found grace in His sight. God answered him, "My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest." Then Moses said,
"If your presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here."
