Knowing God

Knowing God

You can know about God or you can know God. How can you know God? How can you know God’s heart? How can you know the Spirit of God? It is not so complicated.

When you live a Godly life according to the Scripture and the Holy Spirit, you become like God. You become like Him because He is the power to live that life in you. His Spirit controls you and all you think and do. That produces a purity and a confidence that cannot be fabricated.

As an obedient disciple of Jesus Christ, you become more like God as you come to know Him. Life is no longer your own but you are living and walking and talking with the God of the universe. The experience is intoxicating – totally controlling. You are not drunk with wine but you are filled with and controlled by the Spirit of the Living God.

You will delight in God, and in His life in you, irrespective of everyone and any thing. People will not understand you. You will be an anomaly in this world.

You can know about God. You can study and become proficient in Bible and Church history and psychology and business, and music, and, and….. And never know God. How can you know that you know God?

You know that you know God when:
You hurt with what hurts Him
You love what He loves
You rejoice when He rejoices
You care for those He cares for
You are angry at what makes Him angry
You speak His truth to those who reject Him
You stand alone with God on life’s issues
You speak comfort to those who are hurting
You bring healing to hurting hearts
You have your heart in what He values
Your heart beats with His heart
You care for those whom the world rejects
You make decisions based on what He wants
Your heart is fixed on eternity
You bless those who wish to harm you
You forgive those who speak against you
You call people to discipleship
Your energies are used to build God’s Kingdom
You do not count your life dear to yourself
Your life is at His disposal
Your will does not matter to you
You only want His will to be done
You know God when His Word and His words are your delight
When you fear to break His heart
When you cry when His heart is broken
Then, you know God
