Just Give It Time

by Joyce Meyer – posted January 14, 2013

Show me now Your way, that I  may know You [progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with  You]. —Exodus 33:13

When you spend time with God, it  becomes evident. You become calmer, you’re easier to get along with, you are  more joyful, and you remain stable in every situation. Spending quality time  with God is an investment that yields rich benefits. You begin to understand  what He likes and what offends Him. As with any friend, the more time you spend  with God, the more like Him you become.

Spending time with God causes you to become more sensitive to the love He wants to demonstrate to you and to  others. Your conscience alerts you when you’re talking to someone in a way that  does not please Him. Your heart grieves when He grieves, and you quickly pray,  “Oh, God, I’m sorry.” You soon want to apologize to the person you have  offended and discover that saying, “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt you,”  isn’t so difficult after all.

When God told Moses he had found  favor in His eyes (see Exodus 33:12), Moses understood that God was telling him  he could ask for anything his heart desired.

Moses responded by saying that he  simply wanted to become more intimately acquainted with God. Moses had seen God  perform history’s most magnificent miracles, yet what he wanted most of all was  to know God intimately.

I pray that knowing God is the  desire of your heart. You can know Him and hear His voice as clearly and as  intimately as you want to. All it takes is spending time with Him.

God’s word for you today: God does not have favorites, but He does have confidantes.
