Caddo’s Seven Word Sundays!

Caddo’s Seven Word Sundays!

This post is for Caddo’s Seven Word Sundays! My seven words are in two parts this Sunday, because that’s what the Lord placed on my heart. 🙂

He Made Known His Ways To Moses

(Psalm 103:7a NKJV)

I love this  portion of scripture, because it speaks volumes. He made known His ways to Moses… When you’re intimate with someone, you know their ways… You know what each glance means… You know what each smile means… You know the things that please the one you’re intimate with, and you know the things that displease him/her… You know what buttons to push, when you’re intimate with someone… 

I’ve been married to my husband for more than 31 years. Because we’re intimate, I know how to put a smile on that man’s face, and I know how to irritate him. I know how to make him laugh, and I know the things that hurt him. Because we’re intimate, we know how to communicate with each other without even speaking. Because we are intimate, we even think alike on many issues…

This is the kind of relationship that God had with Moses. It’s the kind of relationship He wants with us… It’s the kind of relationship I want with Him…

His Acts to The Children of Israel
(Psalm 103:7b NKJV)

The children of Israel weren’t intimate with God like Moses was. They knew the mighty acts He did… how He sent the plagues to Egypt… How He parted the Red Sea… How He led them through the wilderness with a pillar of fire and a cloud… How He sent manna from heaven… They knew all about those mighty acts of God, but they didn’t know Him intimately, nor did they want to. It was enough for them to just receive His gifts… It was all they wanted from Him…

So… what do you want? Do you want to know His ways, or is it enough to only know His acts?

Show Me Your Ways

He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel. (Psalm 103:7 NKJV)

Lord, show me Your ways
I don’t just want to know about Your mighty acts
I want to know Your ways
I want to know You

Show me the way You love
Show me the way You minister
Show me the way You remain steadfast
Show me the way You forgive

Show me the way You give
Show me the way You take
Show me the way You save to the utmost
Show me the way You deliver

Show me the way You heal
Show me the way You listen to the cries of my heart
Show me the way You answer prayer
Show me the way You move

Show me the way You move
Show me the way You abide
Show me the way You see me
Show me the way You see others

Lord, make Your ways known to Cheryl
