“He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.” Psalm 103:7
“He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.”
Most Christians would prefer to see God perform mighty miracles rather than to have fellow- ship with Him and learn His ways.
Today’s text says that God made known His mighty acts to the people of Israel, but to Moses He “made known His ways.” Exodus 33 records a great crisis in which Moses humbly prayed, “If I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way.” He wanted to know God and His plans for His people more than to see another mighty miracle. No wonder the Lord conversed with him “as a man speaks to his friend” (v.11).
Commenting on the difference between ways and acts, F. B. Meyer wrote, “Ways, or plans, are only made known to the inner circle of the saints; the ordinary congregation learns only His acts.”
If you desire to know God personally more than you long to see His mighty miracles, you’ll be satisﬁed. God has His own ways to make Himself known to us. We can see in the Bible how God revealed Himself to us. Even though God revealed Himself clearly, we are still not able to understand Him properly.
We see from our text today that God is using two things to make Himself known to his people, He intends to make Himself known to His people by His ways and His acts. God is passionate about making Himself known to you. How passionate are you to know God?
Moses was able to know the ways of God. All the Israelites were able to know the acts of God, but only Moses was able to know His ways. It is one thing to see and know the acts of God, but, it is completely a different thing to see and know the ways of God. It is possible for a man to see the acts of God for all of his life, never knowing the ways of God. But a man who can look into the ways of God can hope to know God truly and fully.
If you truly desire to know God, then you have to start seeking His ways diligently, knowing God is not only seeing His works but also learning His ways.
