Where To Start
Do you ever wonder what God expects of us?
As a people-pleaser, it is in my nature to do so.
I am “wired” to wonder- wonder what pleases Him, what He wants from me, wonder if He thinks I am living out my faith the way He expects.
I know I am unconditionally loved, AND accepted, infinitely beyond what my finite mind can fathom. That’s not the issue. It’s the fact that I know God can be “pleased” that compels me to understand how.
Exodus 33 gives me an example of Moses pleasing the LORD. Verse 13 says,
If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so that I may know you and continue to find favor with you.
And God responds back to Moses in verse 17 saying,
I will do the very thing you have asked, because I am pleased with you and know you by name.
That gets my attention!
It shows me what is possible in my life of faith, that I can know God intimately, profoundly, AND that it is mine for the asking/seeking.
