“Having facts about someone is not the same as truly knowing the person.  For instance, if a friend you know relatively well were to come and live with you for several months – you would discover his or her ways – habits – preferences, and priorities.

When Scripture speaks of God’s ways, it’s referring to much more than His actions or facts about His nature.  His ways include His manner – motivations – desires- thoughts and purposes.  One of the reasons believers often become discouraged is that they don’t understand what God is doing in their life.  It’s essential to learn how the Lord operates – as long as we remain ignorant of His ways as revealed in His Word – we won’t trust or know Him intimately!
