Daily Devotional Bible Verse
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.” (Exodus 33:13 ESV)
As we reread Moses’ prayer today, we are struck with the humility in which Moses asks God to continue revealing His ways. If anyone had first hand experience of watching God work, it was Moses. Here are a few examples:
-God speaks to him through a burning bush (Exodus 3).
-God uses Moses to prophesy 10 plagues on Egypt (Exodus 7-11).
-God works through Moses to split the Red Sea (Exodus 14).
-God gives Moses the 10 Commandments on Mount Sinai (Exodus 20).
-God speaks to Moses as a man speaks to a friend (Exodus 34:34).
Moses had seen God do some amazing miracles. Moses was the first person to read God’s law. Moses had an incredibly intimate knowledge of God… Yet he prays, “please show me your ways.”
If Moses realized he had not arrived, then there’s a good chance we have not either. Throughout scripture and history the best leaders are those who posture themselves as life-long learners. Solid spiritual leaders continuously lead out of the overflow of what God is teaching them. As we pray, there should be a sense of humility in our prayers for a guidance only God can give. Learn from Moses today; the man considered to be one of the most humble (Number 12:3).
Is there a sense of Humility in your prayers?
