Did you know that your Heavenly Father can’t wait to meet with you today? It’s true! Spend a minute or two dwelling on that and then read the passage below using your Bible Study Insert.
In today’s passage, God reveals His identity for us. He tells us, in no uncertain terms, who He is and what He’s like. Our passage today from Exodus 34 is one of the most repeated and alluded to passages in the entire Bible. This is the passage where God actually says, "I want to clear up the picture of who I am and what I’m really like.” This is God’s self-disclosure. This is His press release statement to the world.
The writers of the Bible come back to this passage over and over again, dozens of times. Moses, David, Jeremiah and Jonah quote it, allude to it, pray it, sing it, claim it and even complain about it. But above everything else, THEY BELIEVE IT! This passage is the absolute foundation for a proper view of God.
As you prepare to pray, what do you sense your Heavenly Father speaking to you right now? What questions do you have as you read about who He says He is? Take some time in prayer seeking Him, and asking Him to speak to you.
