Teach me your ways Lord, my God !
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.”
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’s precious name !
From the context of the subject verse, we could see that Moses is interceding for His people. By the promises God made to him, he asked God to teach him the ways. Certainly, they are the ways to lead the people to the promised land. Furthermore, the ultimate aim of Moses was to seek God’s presence with him and the Israelites all throughout their journey and beyond.
Moses reverently asked God to show His ways. By asking this, he wanted to know God more. Moreover, he wanted to live in such a way that ensures the constant favor of the Almighty God. Moses knew that he by himself would not be able to lead the Israelites. He wanted a partner. Undoubtedly, Moses wanted that he and his people to safely reach their destination. But he did not seek to rely on his own wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Even more, just like our Lord Jesus is interceding for us now, we see Moses doing the same for the Israelites.
Therefore brethren, let us also rely upon the Omnipotent God who is able to do everything for us. Let our confidence be in the Lord and may His continuous favor be upon us who are his people. In Jesus’ matchless name. Amen.
