Finding Favor!

What Does it Mean to have the Favor of God?

"But Moses sought the favor of the LORD his God"

Does getting God's favor mean getting everything we want?
Does it have to do with "getting stuff", or is it something deeper?
These are the questions I asked myself as I searched for answers from the Word.

"Moses said to the LORD... You have said, 
I know you by name and you have found favor with me.  
If you are pleased with me, teach me Your ways
 so I may know You and continue to find favor with You...  
The LORD replied, 'My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.'"

It seems to me that God was saying that finding the favor of God is actually finding HIM!
- Getting to KNOW Him,
- Entering His Presence.
"...In Your Presence is fullness of joy..."

"Blessed is the man who listens to Me, 
watching daily at My doors,
waiting at My doorway.
For whoever finds Me finds life,
and receives favor of the LORD..."

Our hearts, our emotions, get pulled in many directions, but what we really need is God's presence. thank-you for your insight into "favor."
