Happy Sunday , friends! I took a short break from my usual weekly devotion posting schedule every Sunday, but I’m getting back in the swing today! Prayerfully, I hope that this week’s faith post comforts and inspires you as you receive God’s word into your hearts and minds. Enjoy!
Weekly Devotion: Getting to Know God
Jesus Christ reveals God to us! As believers, we are grateful for this revelation because often times, we try to understand God in human terms, using our limited human thinking and reasoning. In no way, shape, or form can we compare ourselves to our God. He has unique power, knowledge, and understanding that far exceed ours.
No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.“ (John 1:18)
The Bible says that for us to comprehend God, we must know Jesus! This is because He is God in the bodily form, therefore we know God through Jesus.
Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” (John 14:9)
I strive to know Him in many ways: as a loving Father, a faithful friend, a provider, as the one true lover of my soul, and as much, much more. One thing’s for sure: the deeper we are in relationship with the Lord, the more we understand our Father God. As we understand God more, we learn His nature, along with His special characteristics.
With this understanding, fear, uncertainty, and even the need to know everything diminishes, leaving us strengthened and renewed. My prayer is that we all continually seek Him to get a glimpse of Him. Our God is so powerful that even a glimpse of Him causes change! Those sweet moments we experience through seeking are what enable us to align our thoughts, words, and actions with the standards of the Lord.
Additional Verses to Further Study Getting to Know God:
“And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ This is the true God and eternal life.” (1 John 5:20)
“but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18)
“I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me,” (John 10:14)
“Lord, I want to know you. As I allow You to reside in my heart, I surrender all fear, uncertainty, and the need to know everything to You, Father. I am in awe of You.”
Wishing you all a great week!
