Do You Know God?

This is what the LORD says, “Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom, or the powerful boast in their power, or the rich boast in their riches. or the rich boast in their riches.But those who wish to boast should boast in this alone: that they truly know me and understand that I am the LORD -Jeremiah 9:25

I’ve been wrestling with a question lately: do I really know God? Let me ask you . . . Do you know God? I didn’t ask: Do you know about Him? Did you know Him? Do you think about Him? Not do you pray to Him? Do you serve Him? Do you go to chapel or church or youth group and learn about Him. I’m asking Do YOU KNOW HIM? Personally? Do you have your own relationship with God?

Here are a few questions I’ve been asking myself that I would encourage you to ask yourself about your relationship with God:

Are you spending time with God? – Spending time with Laura! You can’t know someone without taking the time to know them! In His Word, in worship? In Prayer?

Are you being Led by God? – When’s the last time you know God spoke to your heart about something? If you haven’t been led by God in a while, go back to the last thing God told you to do!

Are you Relying on God or Relying on What He’s put in You? – The more naturally talented you are, the harder it will be for you to get to know God because you won’t think you will need Him. Don’t let what God has put in you rob you of an opportunity to know the One who gave it to you

Are you being corrected by God? – When’s the last time you got a Divine slap in the face? When’s the last time God really dealt with you on an issue? Maybe a relationship you were in, a hidden sin nobody else knows about, a relationship you need to restore, etc.

Are you doing what God says to do? – James  1:22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.

Do you go to Him about everything? – The Bible says to cast ALL your cares upon the Lord!

Are You Telling Others About Him or Better yet, Do Others Know that You Know Him? One of the greatest compliments you could ever receive in your life is that you know God! If you really know Him, you won’t be able to not tell people about Him!

The greatest relationship you can ever have is the one you have with God! Knowing God will do more for you than you could ever do in on your own. The more you know Him, the More you trust Him! Don’t settle for just knowing about Him, you can KNOW HIM!
