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.
Exodus 33:13 (NIV)
As Christians, we know that it is a duty, an obligation for us to enter into the presence of God in prayer. However, prioritizing other things in their lives, some Christians simply say that God will understand that they cannot pray now because He is an omniscient and merciful God. There are those who, because of their fear, pray while they are still in bed, but with the same reasoning, God will understand.
Such an attitude of laziness and neglect towards God is called "Getting Too Comfortable". When we get too comfortable in our comfort zone, we completely neglect our personal relationship with God. We see Him more as a God who owes us everything without us having to appeal to Him; like a God who must read deep into our minds to know what we can and cannot do in order to understand us as we are.
As we consider today's verse, Moses teaches us that being too comfortable should never be the attitude of a true Christian. He had God's promise to take care of him, to help him guide the people. He knew he had found favor in God's eyes and had His favor, but that was not enough for him. He wanted more, he wanted to be taught by God and wanted to know Him even better to have more grace and favor. Come to think of it, are you too comfortable to want more of God or are you like Moses who didn't want to be comfortable without God.
May the grace and the peace of God be with you all.
