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.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
