July 10 – Moses Meets with God – Exodus 33

Moses speaks to God as a man speaketh to his friend (verse 11).  Moses begins by laying a foundation as to why he is praying to God this time.  He is not complaining to God, but realistically acknowledging the challenges that he is facing.  Moses is not ignoring his own lack of confidence, but recognizing his weaknesses then asking for help.  Moses is looking for an affirmation of the will of God in his life.  God’s replied to Moses that He would grant his request because Moses found grace in the eyes of God and because God knew Moses by name.  Does this mean that God does not know some people by name?  No!  It does indicate that Moses was a frequent guest on God’s phone line.  Moses prayed to God constantly, and Moses reaped the benefits of constant communication with God.
