In Exodus 33, Moses could not see the full extent of God’s glory because God said that Moses would die if he did. So God protected him, letting Moses see the backside of God. The cleft speaks of God’s protection. Just like the iris was protected from the elements of the often storm-ravaged coast of Maine. It was also a promise to Moses as Moses didn’t want to go farther with God unless the presence of God went with him and the Israelites.
Maine people persevere in the midst of harsh winters and short growing seasons. To survive, they used their perserverance and resourcefulness. I am proud to call myself a “Mainer.” I see the qualites noted in Maine people in myself. Knowing your roots often tells you a lot about yourself. It leads to you feeling more secure about yourself like a plant deeply rooted in the soil. The plant can stand its ground during a storm. It can hold its head up high when the wind blows or the rain comes. I pray for that in my life.
There was something I also did right before and during the storm which impacted me the most. I got my boom box and worship tapes out. I decided that I was going to ride out the storm by worshipping God. It was then that I coined the phrase, “worship is my warship.”
