Hope in Prayer

I have written about Exodus 33:12 – 17.  The passage though, keeps yielding help and hope to me in prayer.
Hope in Prayer
Look at Exodus 33:12 – 13.  God tells Moses that He knows Moses and that Moses has found favor in God’s sight.  On the basis of that Moses approaches God in intercession for the people.  In Exodus 33:17 God promises to grant Moses’ request on the basis that Moses has found favor in God’s sight and God knows Moses.

God knows me.  If you are a follower of Christ God knows you.  I have found favor in God’s sight, through the blood of His son.  Further, I have unbelievable favor in His sight, Ephesians 1:3 – 14.  Again, if you are a follower of Christ you have that favor.

I am challenged and encouraged to approach God in the way Moses did.  Claiming His knowledge of me and that I have His favor.


  1. What a wonderful, amazing and powerful truth! We come into the throne room of the universe, into the the presence of the King of kings and Lord of lords, the thrice Holy majestic God, as a little child comes to his loving Father!

    And we can, in fact are commanded to, come boldly. The power of the blood of Christ is incomprehensible!

    Thanks, Mike, for this rich reminder!

  2. Thanks Mike, cool stuff. I was in Eph. 1 yesterday and I couldn't get past the point of I am holy and blameless in HIS sight. I have been married almost 33 years and love my wife and I know she loves me and would do anything for me but after meditating on that verse I don't think I have ever felt so loved my whole life. With all the baggage I carry HE loves me so much that HE considers me holy and blameless in HIS sight. Grace and forgiveness I still have a lot to learn.
