Knowing God

Posted on

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

Colossians 3:16

God created everything and he also designed everything, as he spoke it into existence.  How often do we think deeply or meditate, to really understand God, to understand his infinite power, love, wisdom, grace, mercy, and forgiveness through Christ. God created everything, including the Word; so we can know Him and his Son, and have a close loving relationship.

If we truly know Christ, we can will know God, and our faith will increase. When we know God, he gets bigger and we get smaller, and although we are small, we are crowned with majesty because Christ lives in us. Jesus was human yet he had the power of God, and God gives us his power. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. The more we live in the power of God, the more we will know the God.

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. (1 John 4:7) God is love, and the more love we have in our hearts the more we know God. We understand the emotions of God, because we have the same emotions.

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. (Joshua 1:8) We meditate on the word and on God, and we serve Christ; because it helps to place our understanding from our minds into our hearts. It’s important we know the Word and God’s love, because we are changed when God’s love his Word fills our hearts.

Our motivation to serve Christ comes from God’s love in our hearts, and our desire to be closer to Christ. This increases our desire to be in Heaven with the Father and the Son, and reduces our desire for things of the world, because the blessings from God into our soul are far better and last forever.

Today seek to know God by serving Christ, reading the Word, praying, and meditating.

Prayer: Lord, draw me closer to you as I serve you by being a light in this world. Guide me in the Spirit to obey your will.  In Jesus name, Amen.
