You know, my wife knows me very, very well.

She knows me so well that if I made a decision without Janet being present…and you told her the circumstances and gave her the information that was given to me…99 out of 100 times she would be able to tell you exactly the decision I made.

She could tell you just how I responded.  And she’d probably be able to tell you just how I felt because she knows my ways.  She knows my habits.  She knows how I think.  She knows how I respond to things.  She knows how I feel.  She understands my passion.  She knows the things I don’t like.

She would be able to tell you the decision I made because we have an intimate relationship.  She knows me.

I think this gives us an understanding of what Moses was really praying about in Exodus 33:13 when he prayed, “Show me now Your way, that I may know You.”  He was saying, “God, I don’t want to just know what You do, but I want to know why You do what You do.  I want to know who You are.  I intuitively want to know Your will.  While others are wandering around trying to figure out what You want, I want to already be doing it.”

And I think that’s possible for you and me too!  You can know God intimately!
