Getting to Know God
October 15, 2015, 12:00 AM

Do you really know God?  Who is God to you?  God knows you, but do you really know Him?

If you are a Born again believer in Christ than you have turned to God as Savior and that is the most important but is that all He is?

The reality is that God will reveal Himself to you as you walk with Him.  God has always revealed Himself to His people through the generations as they walked with Him through life.  He progressively reveals His nature according to His purposes for and the needs of His people.

Abraham, Isaac and Jacob knew Him as God almighty because they needed Him to protect them from their enemies.  

Moses and Israel learned not only was He God almighty who delivered them from the Egyptians but He was Lord and master over every nation and everything.  He delivered them from their mighty enemies but also led them into the promised Land.

David knew Him as Lord and God Almighty but also as an intimate and loving Shepherd who cares for His own.  

As you go through life and face life’s circumstances God will continue to reveal His character to you based on His calling for your life and the needs of your life.  You will only come to know these characteristics as we obey Him.

When you grieve He will be a comforter.

When you are in need He will show Himself to be a great provider.

When you are afraid He will spread His arms around you to protect you like a bird protects her young.

When you face a serious challenge He will be to you God Almighty.

When you sin, fall and fail, He will be to you a forgiving Father and friend who picks you up, dusts you off and encourages you to keep going.

Your understanding of who God is now should be greater than your understanding of Who God was when you first became a Christian.  You aught to know Him better today than you did yesterday, a month ago or 5 years ago.  

One reason why we must go through difficulty and trial is so that we can come to know God’s character and to learn that God will be all that we will ever need.  

Sadly it is the going through these trials that cause many to turn away from Him.  Understand that God works all things for your good if you love Him and believe in Him.  All the things  you go through are designed to draw you closer to God and thus help you know him better today and therefore make you stronger for tomorrow.  

Whatever your current situation or the situation you find yourself in tomorrow; view it in the light that it is God teaching you something else about Himself.

If you do you will come to know God in dimensions that you have never known Him before.  

If you don’t know Him, have never called upon Him and never trusted Him as savior:  Turn to Him today and discover that He is the very need of your life and salvation of your soul.

Exodus 6:2-3

And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the Lord:

And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.
