Rhythms of Grace – Know God Yourself

Know God Yourself

Ephesians 1:16-18 NIV “I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,”

There is a big difference in knowing about God and knowing Him Yourself. When we truly know God, we experience His life & power. Many Christians only live by their feeling’s. When they feel joyful and happy, then God is blessing them, but if they feel down and things are upside down they start to wonder, “Where is God today?”

If we have a personal knowledge of God, we are not disturbed by how we feel or by circumstances or by outstanding prayers or questions because we have a perfect assurance that God loves us and He is always with us and working for our good and so we know that nothing else matters.

People always want to explain God, but if we know Him for yourself, then the first thing we give up is trying to understand Him or explain Him. The person who knows Him spiritually has no need to understand everything mentally.

Pray for a spirit of wisdom and revelation that you might know God and His Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed One.

Celebrate that you know God, and progressively pursue Him by getting to know Him better as each day passes by, that’s what protects our Joy and makes us want to shout and Praise Him more and more.
