Exodus34-6b (1)

When Moses asked God to show him more about Himself, God gave him this revealing self-portrait: “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth” (Exodus 34:6).

Now consider that Moses was one of God’s best friends in the Old Testament. He spent days alone in God’s presence. So I think we can be sure that God’s first sentence summed up what seemed to Him most important to convey.

Ask yourself how your portrait of God measures up to the truth about God. If you see God as stingy, callous, unmerciful, quick to anger, or slow to bless, you are living in a cloud of error that has left you impoverished instead of blessed.
