A Hunger To Know My God
"I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians." Exodus 6:7
Scripture Focus: Philippians 3:7-14
It's all about Jesus. Our hearts vibrate with the message of God's love, grace, salvation and victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. We cry out with the Apostle Paul, "I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings..." (Philippians 3:10)
The person of Jesus, and God's working through Him in our lives, is wonderfully prefigured in His much earlier working with His chosen people Israel. Much of that took place in the wilderness, even as much of our lives seems to be "in the wilderness," too. As God patiently led and fashioned the hearts of His people, so He desires to work with us.
His purpose, expressed often in the book of Exodus, was "that you may know that I am the Lord." We come to know His person; we develop confidence in His power; we rest in the glory of our personal relationship with Him. As I study the Old Testament, I find a hunger to know my God; I am led to worship; I see my Savior; I long to know Him better. That's an exciting journey!
Insight: Lord, help us to know you more intimately so that we can trust you more implicitly.
