I know God loves me so much and I desire to love HIM with every breath in me. No doubt He has great plans for me. But you see the thought that HE could actually prefer or choose some over others baffles me. So I ask you ‘does HE have favourites?’
HE revealed HIS character to Moses but HIS deeds to the people of Israel. In other words Moses had the privilege to know the personality, nature, disposition, temperament, and constitution… the make-up of God. Wow! – While the whole nation of Israel, only knew HIS actions…activities. God showed Moses ‘Who & How’ while He showed others ‘what’
I want more than the gifts. I want to know the Giver! But do I have to be a Minister, Deacon, or a Pastor to have Moses-like privilege? Doesn’t the scripture say ‘there is no partiality with God’ Fair enough, I know some got the call to ‘go higher’ but there were also those who volunteered. Moses was chosen. Isaiah heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ to which he replied – “Here am I. Send me!”
I strongly agree with C.S Lewis. He proposed that ‘when it comes to knowing God, the initiative lies on His side…If He does not show Himself, nothing you can do will enable you to find Him. And, in fact, He shows much more of Himself to some people than to others — not because He has favorites, but because it is impossible for Him to show Himself to a man whose whole mind and character are in the wrong condition. Just as sunlight, though it has no favorites, cannot be reflected in a dusty mirror as clearly as in a clean one.’
That’s why HE said ‘You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart’ Meaning the finding is guaranteed when we seek HIM with all our heart!
Father, help us to seek you above all else. Prepare us and make us ready and receptive to your will. And please reveal yourself to us, to our children and children’s children in Jesus name. Amen
