Know God and His Ways
“Teach me your ways so that I may know you and continue to find favor with you.” (Exodus 33:13)
Make knowing God a top priority in life! Moses yearned to know God and to know His ways. In turn, God revealed himself to Moses. Moses found that through this process, he experienced God’s presence and his favor. Later, Moses was called to lead God’s people out of Egypt. He knew that the Israelites would die in the wilderness without God’s favor, so Moses made it a priority to teach the people God’s ways. As they lived for God, they too experienced his presence and favor. It was this very presence of God and his favor that set the Israelites apart from others.
Things happen when God has priority in our life. His favor opens doors, changes circumstances, causes blessing, gives protection, provides counsel, overcomes barriers, and gives strength, fortitude and hope. He is what we need in order to navigate successfully through this world. As we learn to trust him, especially in our weaknesses, his power and strength become fully active in us.
Do you see the evidence of God’s favor and blessing in your life? Have you made it a priority in your life to know God and his ways? He promises to show his friendship to those who fear and honor him, and to show them the blessings that come as a result of a relationship with him.
It is important for us to study the biblical accounts of the lives of those who came before us. From them we learn what to do and what not to do. When we spend time with God in his Word, we make ourselves candidates for him to show us his ways and to direct us to his purposes.
Is knowing God the first priority in your life? What else is clamoring for your attention? Are you experiencing God’s favor? Are there changes you need to make in your life in order to experience more of God?
