Psalm 123:2 (KJV)
“Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.”
The LORD our God – these are the people that build their relationship with the Hand of God. The hand of God is synonymous to the anointing.
1 Samuel 15:30 (KJV)

“Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the LORD thy God.”
The LORD thy God – those at this level are more concerned with their own appearances at the expense of God’s feelings. Saul was a Jew but he did not know God. David on the other hand, was always after God’s heart. God is not looking for servants but for children. Servants look at the hand of the Master but Children look for the heart of the Father. Are you after God’s heart or His hand? You will gradually become a man after His heart as you prepare your heart to seek Him.
Psalm 103:7(KJV) “He made known His ways unto Moses, His acts unto the children of Israel.”

God made His Ways and Acts known; ways to Moses and acts to Israel. The Lord Jesus is the only prophet that was better than Moses in intimacy with the Father. His Ways formed the reason behind His Acts. God demonstrates His Acts to His servants. In the family of God, there is progression in intimacy. God wants progression in our intimacy with Him. Our flesh always gets in the way of intimacy.
Abraham had the privilege of Intimacy with God but his flesh made him stop at ten (10) righteous people when interceding for Sodom and Gomorrah though God was waiting for him to ask for one soul. If you believe that you can’t change the mind of God, then you have not seen the power of intimacy. Moses pleaded for the children of Israel and God changed His mind. There is a joy in every father’s heart when his son has grown up from being a child to a representative. God is not looking for replacements of Himself but representatives. Having an audience with God the way Moses did is available for all of us; it is a function of maturity. You determine how long you want to be a child. People that are enjoying the acts of God always complain. The operation of the devil in these last days will require Christians that are intimate with God to win.

Prayer: Lord, make your ways known unto me and help me to pay the price of intimacy in Jesus name.
