So the LORD spoke to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. . . (EXODUS 33:11).

EXODUS 33:20-23, EXODUS 3:4, EXODUS 19:19

Can you imagine it? Speaking to God? Look at our verse. It says that the LORD spoke to Moses as a man speaks to his friend. How wonderful that must have been. Actually, the Bible tells us that God spoke out loud to Moses many times as he led the Israelites to the Promised Land. God wanted to be sure the people knew exactly what He expected of them. It must have been incredible for Moses because we read in Exodus that after God spoke to Moses his face would shine bright. I believe that the Bible’s account of God speaking to Moses is one of the many wonderful, miraculous things we read about in the Bible. The shining face of Moses also reminds us of how holy God is!
