Encouragement for your daily walk with God
Jesus prayed profound words when He said, “This is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent" [John 17:3]. Knowing God is possible, you know. The Apostle John said, "We know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding, in order that we might know Him who is true, and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ" [1 John 5:20].
We first know God in a general sense through salvation. But there is so much more. Beyond salvation, we can have an intimate knowledge of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — God.
I want that, don’t you? Like Moses prayed, "Let me know Your ways, that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight" [Exodus 33:13]. That attitude, that passion, is the driving force in prayer. Those who know God best are those who pray often and pray fervently. Passion for God will do that; compel you to know God and serve Him better.
A good question to end our week is: Do you only know God as your Savior or do you have intimate knowledge of God? The answer to that lies in the character of your prayers. Your desire to know God will motivate you toward fervent prayer
I want to know Christ and experience the mighty power that raised Him from the dead. I want to suffer with Him, sharing in His death… Philippians 3.10
