November 16– Exodus 33:17-23

November 16– Exodus 33:17-23

17 And the Lord said to Moses, “This very thing that you have spoken I will do, for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.” 18 Moses said, “Please show me your glory.” 19 And he said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name ‘The Lord.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy. 20 But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for man shall not see me and live.” 21 And the Lord said, “Behold, there is a place by me where you shall stand on the rock, 22 and while my glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with my hand until I have passed by. 23 Then I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back, but my face shall not be seen.”

I love that God is so loving to Moses. He will show himself but in doing so He must protect Moses. What a loving God we serve. Have you experienced the love of God recently? As you ponder this question, show you gratitude and praise to our Father. Sing, worship, shout for joy that we are so loved that our God knows us by name and meets our every need.


Heavenly Father, You show us Your glory in so many ways every single day and I am so thankful that You allowed me to be on this side of the cross.  I can’t imagine life without the Holy Spirit.  And being a “gentile”, I can’t imagine living in the days before Jesus.  I am so grateful that He came for everyone, not just a chosen few.  Help me share with others how wonderful and merciful You are so they can have a relationship with You as well.  You are the only One worthy of our praise.  Help me remember daily all the many ways I have to be grateful and to also remember to thank You for them because You are the Author of everything!

In Jesus’ name.
