Daily D – Exodus 33:13
Exodus 33:13 “If it is true that you look favorably on me, let me know your ways so I may understand you more fully and continue to enjoy your favor. And remember that this nation is your very own people.” (NLT)
Those who come to know God as more than a name, more than an idea, want to know more of who he is. They want to know his ways. Having experienced his grace and mercy, they desire to wade deeper into this love that endures forever.
Sunday worship is a good time to get to know God better. There we are surrounded by others who seek to know his will and ways. In the company of such seekers, we find strength and encouragement. We stand with other pilgrims. We join brothers and sisters on a journey.
Morning by morning, or evening by evening, or both, are good times to get to know God better as well. Learning to see his thumbprint on our lives and in the lives of others is instructive. This becomes clearer many times in retrospect. This is where a daily journal and gratitude journal come in handy. They help us identify and ponder what we often hurry past along the way.
Here is a Sunday prayer: “Our Father, I want to know you and your ways. I want to understand your heart. I want to think your thoughts after you. I want to adjust my life so that I can join you in bringing grace and mercy and peace and wonder in increasing measure into this world of yours. Amen.”
I will seek to know God and his ways.
Our Father, I want to know you and your ways. I want to understand your heart. I want to think your thoughts after you. I want to adjust my life so that I can join you in bringing grace and mercy and peace and wonder in increasing measure into this world of yours. Amen.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
