Proverbs 27:19(KJV); As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.
When describing the relationship that He shared with Moses, the Lord God says, in Numbers 12:8, “With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold.”
The Bible in Exodus 33:11 expounds on this experience when it says, “And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend.”
This experience of Moses is what our theme scripture alludes to, that as in water face answereth to face. Water here represents the Spirit and the realms therein. Therefore, it is in the depths of the spirit that face answers to face.
When deep called unto deep (Psalm 42:7), Moses answered. He was a man who lived in the depth of God, so much that the Bible says that he esteemed the reproach of Christ as greater riches even before Christ walked in the flesh (Hebrews 11:26).
The good news is that the relationship Moses shared with God was not exclusive to him alone. God has not stopped speaking to men face to face. It is not His desire that we merely swim in the wells of salvation. He wants you to move past visions and dreams to the depth of a face to face relationship.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God has not stopped speaking to men face to face. He wants you to move past visions and dreams to the depth of a face to face relationship.
PRAYER: My Lord, I thank You for this truth. I hear deep calling unto me and the deep in me responds. Thank You because more than ever before, You submerge me in the experiences of the Spirit. These experiences define my reality and what I call my life, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
