Show Me Your Ways

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Promises - Day 326 - Exodus 33:12-14 - Show Me Your Ways - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Promises – Day 326 – Exodus 33:12-14 – Show Me Your Ways – Growing As Disciples

Moses said to the LORD, “See, you say to me, ‘Bring up this people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.’  Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may know you in order to find favor in your sight. Consider too that this nation is your people.”  And he said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:12-14 (ESV)

Show Me

Yes, that is exactly what I want and need. That is the request that I am making to you right now. What do you want and need? What request are you making to me right now? I want you to show me your ways so I can come to know you. That is a bold request. Yes, I suppose that it is a bold request. I can make it only because you have put that desire and prayer in my heart to request. You have helped me to want to know and love and follow and serve you with all that is within me. Such a desire does not originate with me, there is no doubt about that. Desiring to know and love and follow and serve you is the very best gift you could have given to me. It is this gift that led me to receive forgiveness and cleansing of my sin through your Son’s death on the cross. He paid for my sin. He cleansed my unrighteousness. He secured a new life for me. He made me righteous in your sight. He made it so I can live in an intimate relationship with you. He made it so I can walk through life with you. Once I turned from my old ways and received Him as my Savior and Lord, you filled me with your Holy Spirit. Now, here I am asking you to show me your ways so I can come to know you. That is an excellent prayer to be praying. 

Why do you so passionately want me to show you, my ways? Why do you so strongly want to come to know me? I can only and simply say, “I love you because you first loved me.” Love compels me to want to know and love and follow and serve you with all that is within me. I want to follow you to where you lead me. I want to do whatever you ask of me. I want to fully live the life that you have called me to live. But most of all, I simply want to know you. Knowing you will mold and shape my life. Knowing you will change my heart, transform my mind, and guide my life. Knowing you will make me able to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. Is that enough? Is that sufficient reason for me to want you to show me your ways so I can come to know you? Yes, you have prayed well. You have asked for something I will gladly give to you. I will show you, my ways. I will help you to come to know me intimately. Thank you, Heavenly Father. 

Heavenly Father, you have my full attention. It is my utmost and highest desire to see your ways and come to know you. Have you favor be with me so that I may love and follow and serve you well. I want to fully live the life you have called me to live for you. Amen

My Presence Will Go With You

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Guidance - Exodus 33:12-14 - My Presence Will Go With You - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Guidance – Exodus 33:12-14 – My Presence Will Go With You – Growing As Disciples

Moses said to the LORD, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.” The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:12-14 (NIV)

Help You

I have a large assignment I have given you to do for me. You can’t possible do what I have given you to do for me without my help. This should come as a great encouragement to you. This should not discourage you. This should not cause you to shrink back in doubt. This should not paralyze you with fear. Why is that? You have found favor with me.  I know you by name. My hand is on you. I will work in and through. I will be with you to help you. Be encouraged. Be strengthened. Be ready to move forward with me. Yes Lord, I will.

Can I ask you for some details? Can I have some more information? What would you like to know? Where will I go? What will I do? Who will you send with me? How will you use me? You have a lot of questions. You want to know ever step of your way. Do you think that I will answer every last one of your questions? Will I give you a complete road map before you start your journey? Is that the way I work? Is that what I will do for you? I doubt it. I’m pretty sure you won’t do that. Why is that?

You want me to trust in you. You want me to rely on you for all my help. You alone will be the only road map that you will give me. You will be my guide. You want me to follow you to where you will lead me. You want me to take one step at a time with you. I am pleased with you. I want you to know me. I want you to know my will and walk in my ways. I will teach you. I will train you. I will help you. I will use you for my purposes and according to my plan. Will you follow me? Yes Lord, I will follow you to wherever you lead me to do whatever you ask of me.

Lord, thank you for calling me into your service. It will be my pleasure to serve you. I will go and do whatever you ask of me. I will trust you to help me with what you have given me to do. Fill me with your presence. Have your favor rest on me as I serve you. Amen

Give You Rest

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Becoming Like Christ - Day 223- Exodus 33:1 - Give You Rest - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Becoming Like Christ – Day 223- Exodus 33:1 – Give You Rest – Growing As Disciples

Moses said to the LORD, “You have been telling me, ‘Lead these people,’ but you have not let me know whom you will send with me. You have said, ‘I know you by name and you have found favor with me.’ If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.” The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:12-14 (NIV) 

Your Rest 

There is no doubt about it, my life has been filled with strenuous effort that has left me weary, worn out and exhausted. Is that my will for you? Is that my plan for your life? Do you think that I want you to be weary and worn out and exhausted? Well, you have given me large assignments that have been far beyond my ability to accomplish. Yes, that is true. Why have I given you assignments that are far beyond your ability to accomplish? You can’t think that I have given you large assignments to make you weary, worn out and exhausted. No, that is not what I think. What do you think? I think you want me to come to rely on you. Why do you think that I want you to come to rely on me? You want me to come to know you. Yes, I do. Have you come to know me as you have relied on me? Yes, I have, without a doubt. That is good. What has happened to you as you have come to know me? As I have come to know you, I have come to love you. What has happened to you as you have come to know and love me? As I have come to know and love you, I have been filled with passion to follow and serve you. Isn’t that great? Yes, for that, I am very thankful. That’s good.

What else have you learned from the very large assignments that I have given to you? I have learned that you are working in and through me to accomplish your purposes and plans. I have learned that you are with me to help me every step of my way through life. I have learned that your favor is resting on me. Now let me ask you a question. I’m listening. Have you experienced rest in your life as a result of your coming to know and love and follow and serve me? Yes, I have a rest within me that can only come from you. Do you also have rest in your life because you know that I am with, I will help you, my favor rests on you, and I will make you able to accomplish my purposes and fulfill my plans? Yes, you have filed my life with your rest even in the midst every unrestful circumstance, difficult task or large assignment that may come my way in life. Live in my rest. Yes Lord, I will. That will be very good. 

Lord, I want nothing more than to live in your rest. I know that your rest does not come by my efforts. My efforts simply wear me out. No, I want the rest that can only be mine by coming to know, love, follow and serve you. Help me to live fully in your rest. Amen
