"God is most glorified in us, when we are most satisfied in Him" -Piper

Poetic Meditation

If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people (Ex.33:13)

Father I want to find favor with you

Not out of works

But out of being

Favor derived from intimacy with you

Heart to heart

Just like the dance of the Trinity

Effortless unity

No striving

No competition

Mutual respect for one another

God-preference

Your ways

The eternal way

That leads me to the door of intimacy

I want to know you

It burns red-hot in me

It consumes me

To know you

Your heart

Your thoughts

Your presence

As Paul said, ‘I consider everything as dung in comparison to knowing you’

I want to know you

I want to know you in my heart

In my emotions

In my intellect

I want to feel you as the lover of my soul

I long for your thoughts to saturate my thoughs

God thoughts

God knowledge

Heart to heart knowledge

No book knowledge

Shape my thinking about you

Sharpen my thoughts about you

They seem so blunt!

Practical Application

1. What does this verse teach me about God?

2. How does God want me to live right now?

3. What is God’s will for me right now?
