Beloved, what a beautiful day we have ahead of us today. Thank You Jesus, thank You Jesus. The joy of the Lord is our strength dearie beloved, His salvation is forever sure. Another opportunity to seek God’s face in prayer is here again and we must make the best of it.
Before we get into business of the day, I just want to ask you a simply but interesting question “Do you know your God?” or putting it in a better perspective “Do you know God?”
What you know about a subject, an object, a person, or whatsoever be it goes a long way to guide you in relationship with same. Sometime you are meeting an individual for the frist time and he or she is so aggressive to you and you being to wonder what is going on. Only to discover that the attitude being meted to you was on some information this person had before your encounter. Sometime it might be the opposite and you are wondering also while is person so nice to me.
Same way, what you know about God matters a lot in your relationship with Him. We all encountered God in different circumstance at new birth or when you got born-again. Those experiences to a greater extend form your opinion and effects your relationship with Him also. Remember the story of the five blind men and the elephant?
It is so important that we take out time to know God through prayer, discussions, reading the bible and most especially asking Him to reveal Himself to you by whatever means that you may truly know Him.
As you will later also discover in today’s devotion, if there is any aspect of Him you are yet to experience, desire it and seek after it rather than discountenancing the truth. Tell Him what your heart desires are and He will bring it to past.
Oftentimes we belittle our God and make Him so small and believe the lie of Satan. My prayer for you that after today you will begin to have an encounter with God and begin to know Him more than ever before. Know Him though His Might works, Great deliverance, Restorations and Divest manifold blessings of the Lord that will come your way.
This third month of the year will do you good and take you where you least expected in Jesus Name. Come along with Me to discover more:
This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God,
and the One You have sent—Jesus Christ.—John 17:3
Knowing God through experience is radically different than knowing about God from a theology textbook. According to the Bible, you cannot say you know God unless you have experienced Him (Phil. 3:8, 10). Biblical knowledge always involves experience. You may become discouraged because the truths you read about in the Bible are much richer than the reality of your own experience.
If you have not experienced God’s power at work in and through your life, do not settle for a secondhand knowledge of God’s power, rejoicing in what He has done in others. Jesus’ prayer was that you would come to know God and His presence in your life and experience. Don’t discount the power of God as described in Scripture simply because you have not experienced it. Bring your experience up to the standard of Scripture, never reduce Scripture to the level of your experience.
Don’t settle for a head knowledge of God’s love. Jesus prayed that you would experience the depth and width and height of His love and that you would enjoy God’s full and unending love in the day-to-day experiences of your life.
If you sense there are biblical truths that you are not experiencing, keep that truth before you and ask God to bring it into your everyday experience. Ask God if there are any adjustments you need to make in order to receive His promise. Don’t give up on the promises of God, stay with them until you are fully experiencing them.
Did you hear that, don’t give up but stay on with those promises until you fully experience it. There is so much in God that this piece cannot exhaust however, stay on with what you want from God till it becomes your portion or loses it holds upon your life too. Knowing God also talk about the Trinity. Jesus is our salvation, I hope you know that my dear:
“Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.” Psalm 35:3
What does this sweet prayer teach me? It shall be my evening’s petition; but first let it yield me an instructive meditation. The text informs me first of all that David had his doubts; for why should he pray, “Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation,” if he were not sometimes exercised with doubts and fears? Let me, then, be of good cheer, for I am not the only saint who has to complain of weakness of faith.
If David doubted, I need not conclude that I am no Christian because I have doubts. The text reminds me that David was not content while he had doubts and fears, but he repaired at once to the mercy-seat to pray for assurance; for he valued it as much fine gold. I too must labour after an abiding sense of my acceptance in the Beloved, and must have no joy when His love is not shed abroad in my soul. When my Bridegroom is gone from me, my soul must and will fast.
I learn also that David knew where to obtain full assurance. He went to his God in prayer, crying, “Say unto my soul I am thy salvation.” I must be much alone with God if I would have a clear sense of Jesus’ love. Let my prayers cease, and my eye of faith will grow dim. Much in prayer, much in heaven; slow in prayer, slow in progress.
I notice that David would not be satisfied unless his assurance had a divine source. “Say unto my soul.” Lord, do Thou say it! Nothing short of a divine testimony in the soul will ever content the true Christian. Moreover, David could not rest unless his assurance had a vivid personality about it. “Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.”
Lord, if Thou shouldst say this to all the saints, it were nothing, unless Thou shouldst say it to me. Lord, I have sinned; I deserve not Thy smile; I scarcely dare to ask it; but oh! say to my soul, even to my soul, “I am thy salvation.” Let me have a present, personal, infallible, indisputable sense that I am Thine, and that Thou art mine.
Are you making that a prayer right away? Are praying to know Him better than you have ever done before now. Beloved, Enoch walked with God and was translated into heaven alive. How far do you know your God? The extend you know Him keep you stable even in the storm. So never mind if are storms around, the goodnews is that you will overcomer and that is where we stand – “OVERCOMERS BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS.
Today as declared earlier is gonna be good for you as you go through. Know God and be an overcomer though His Son and with the help of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Name I pray!!!! Remember God is the builder of all things, therefore nothing is too difficult for Him to do for you (Heb 3:4; Phil 4:19).
Remain ever blessed in the Lord.
