Bible League: Living His Word
If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you.

God was pleased with Moses. We know this because God chose Moses to lead His people to the Promised Land. Although Moses was not perfect, God revealed Himself to Moses at the Burning Bush and He revealed His plans for him. God is pleased with us as well. We know this because God has chosen us for the tasks He has for us. Although we are not perfect either, God revealed Himself to us and He is revealing His plans for us.

Given His favor, we may expect something from Him. We may expect that He will do something for us like He did for Moses.

What we may expect is that God will teach us His ways. We may expect that when we pray to God to lead us and guide us in accordance with His plans for our lives He will answer our prayers. He will teach us the way He wants things done. We will not have to wander aimlessly through life wondering if we are doing the right thing or not. God will make sure that we receive proper instruction in His ways from the Bible (Psalm 119:105) and from the more personal forms of guidance He gives us (Psalm 32:8).

When He does this for us we will learn more about Him. We will learn what He is like and what He expects from people in general and from us in particular. We will come to know Him personally. We will have a personal two-way relationship with Him. He will be real to us, not just a philosophical or theological concept. We will make our way through life with the confidence that our God cares enough to enter into a personal relationship with us.

When God teaches us His ways we will continue to find favor with Him. God sovereignly decided to show us His favor in the first place and when we are taught His ways our obedience to them will only increase His favor. He will show His favor and goodness by continuing to help us accomplish the things He wants us to accomplish and by continuing to instruct us and guide us in His ways.

God is pleased with you. You may ask Him for instruction in His ways so you will know Him better and continue to find favor with Him.

Tyndale Life Application Daily Devotion
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.
Insight
What does it mean to “put on your new nature”? It means that your conduct should match your faith.
Challenge
If you are a Christian, you should act like it. To be a Christian means more than just making good resolutions and having good intentions; it means taking the right actions. This is a straightforward step that is as simple as putting on your clothes.
Morning and Evening by Spurgeon
Isaiah 33:16  His place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

Do you doubt, O Christian, do you doubt as to whether God will fulfil his promise? Shall the munitions of rock be carried by storm? Shall the storehouses of heaven fail? Do you think that your heavenly Father, though he knoweth that you have need of food and raiment, will yet forget you? When not a sparrow falls to the ground without your Father, and the very hairs of your head are all numbered, will you mistrust and doubt him? Perhaps your affliction will continue upon you till you dare to trust your God, and then it shall end. Full many there be who have been tried and sore vexed till at last they have been driven in sheer desperation to exercise faith in God, and the moment of their faith has been the instant of their deliverance; they have seen whether God would keep his promise or not. Oh, I pray you, doubt him no longer! Please not Satan, and vex not yourself by indulging any more those hard thoughts of God. Think it not a light matter to doubt Jehovah. Remember, it is a sin; and not a little sin either, but in the highest degree criminal. The angels never doubted him, nor the devils either: we alone, out of all the beings that God has fashioned, dishonor him by unbelief, and tarnish his honor by mistrust. Shame upon us for this! Our God does not deserve to be so basely suspected; in our past life we have proved him to be true and faithful to his word, and with so many instances of his love and of his kindness as we have received, and are daily receiving, at his hands, it is base and inexcusable that we suffer a doubt to sojourn within our heart. May we henceforth wage constant war against doubts of our God--enemies to our peace and to his honor; and with an unstaggering faith believe that what he has promised he will also perform. "Lord, I believe, help thou mine unbelief."

Daily Light on the Daily Path
Psalm 50:5  "Gather My godly ones to Me, Those who have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice."

Hebrews 9:28  so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.

Hebrews 9:15  For this reason He is the mediator of a new covenant, so that, since a death has taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were committed under the first covenant, those who have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.

John 17:24  "Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

Mark 13:27  "And then He will send forth the angels, and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest end of the earth to the farthest end of heaven.

Deuteronomy 30:4  "If your outcasts are at the ends of the earth, from there the LORD your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you back.

1 Thessalonians 4:16,17  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. • Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
