"Favor in God's Sight"

“Favor in God’s Sight”

Now if I have indeed found favor in Your sight, please teach me Your ways, and I will know You and find favor in Your sight.     Exodus 33:13

Moses found FAVOR in GOD’S SIGHT.  He desired to KNOW GOD intimately, and LEARN His ways.  God had just told Moses: “I know you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.”  Guess what!  God knows your name, but the question is: Has He found FAVOR with you, in His sight?

Moses led the Children of Israel out of Egypt and towards the Promised Land.  He did this under the LEADERSHIP of the ALMIGHTY GOD, and for the most part he was OBEDIENT to God’s direction. He did DISOBEY God once, and it cost him dearly, he was not allowed to enter the Promised Land. 

In order to find FAVOR in GOD’S SIGHT one MUST be FIRST of all, a Child of the Living God, then they MUST be OBEDIENT to His Will.  Psalm 18:24 says: “The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight.” 

In our Scripture, Exodus 33:13, we can see that Moses is asking God to TEACH him His ways, and then he would KNOW Him.  What Moses was basically saying was: “May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; ESTABLISH the work of our hands for us---yes, ESTABLISH the work of our hands.” (Psalm 90:17)  If God would TEACH Moses His ways, and Moses grew to TRULY KNOW GOD, he would be able to do what God wanted him to do.  This is the way it is with God’s TRUE CHILDREN, today, if we were OBEDIENT to God and FAITHFUL in ALL He wants us to do, we like Moses, could ask God to ESTABLISH the work of our hands that we might find FAVOR in GOD’S SIGHT.  Have you found FAVOR in GOD’S SIGHT?

If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, and have been REJECTING His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, you have NOT found FAVOR in GOD’S SIGHT.  And your DESTINY is an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE.  In order for you to find FAVOR in GOD’S SIGHT, and change your DESTINY, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.  Then BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.  Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and find FAVOR in GOD’S SIGHT.  Do this NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
