Winning Wisdom: Meet God 3


Topic: Meet God 3 [Saturday, 4th August 2017]

For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. Acts 17:23

Now that we have reasonably grasped the importance of knowing the Lord, the question is, how do I get to know the Lord? You guessed right: the Word. God and His Word are one and the same. He gave us His Word, that is, He gave us Himself. So as we interface with the Word of God, we are interfacing with God Himself. Scriptures say Jesus is the revealed image or person of God (Hebrews 1:1-3), and He is also called the Word of God. When we look at the exploit of Jesus in scriptures, we are looking at the exploit of God. Remember, Jesus said "I and my Father are one" ( John 10:30).

The Word of God, as we know, has been given to us to build us to perfection, inclusive is the perfect knowledge of God. Continuous study of the word exposes us to the true and precise nature of God. We don’t need to walk by what we hear around or what we assume. We can know directly from His word. Christ said in John 5:39, “search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” All through scriptures the nature of God is expounded to us, and we can believe it because it was inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Job 37:23 says: “touching the Almighty, we cannot find Him out: He is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.” Psalms 116:5: says of Him: “gracious is the Lord, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.” James 4:9 says: “for God is Love." All these scriptures reveal something about God, and God would really be pleased when we will, through the scriptures, Get to know Him. When we diligently search through the scripture, God’s nature is revealed to us day after day, which enables us to trust Him even more.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Father, I believe in You, and that Your Word is provided that I may know You. Help me daily to search Your Word, and stay on Your Word so I can learn You more, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
