CRAVE AND YOU WILL RECEIVE
Do you long to see the Lord? Moses did. Exodus 33:12-23 -- Moses prays intimately to see His face
Moses is a mature follower who still asks God for more of his presence
1. IT IS HERE WHERE ONE TRULY LEARNS TO KNOW GOD
34: 5-6 "The Lord is merciful..." Do I want to know God or just want to know more ABOUT God?
2. WE BEGIN TO TRULY LEARN THE WAYS OF GOD
Moses came to understand God's instruction when Moses was devoted to Him ... in this case, for a supernatural 40 days
Prayer is a way we bathe ourselves in the Divine Presence
We want a formula, but God is a person
3. IT IS HERE ONE IS CHANGED
34:29 "Moses was not aware his face was radiant because he had spoken weith God"
Too many of us think our face is shining and it is not
1 Cor 13:4-7 -- what love is
Gal 5:22- fruit of the spirit
4. THIS IS WHERE WE INFLUENCE OTHERS
34:31-35 "...they saw the face of moses, that he shone..."
Our job is to influence, not to demand or dictate
"To be much for God, you must be much WITH God."
Nothing matters if you don't have Jesus in the house; He won't be if He's not in our hearts and minds
Jer 29:13 "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
Pray that God will show up in my church and in my life.
