Get To Know God Better
You're on the adventure of a lifetime when you pursue a greater knowledge of God. What you've learned about God so far should give you a hunger to know Him even more. You must never be satisfied with what you know about Him already. Here are four practical benefits of knowing God:
1) Blessing. The more you know God and obey His will, the more you'll experience His blessings. 'If you obey all the decrees and commands I am giving you today, all will be well with you and your children… ' (Deuteronomy 4:40)
2) Peace. 'Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God… ' (2 Peter 1:2 ). The more you know God, the more at peace you'll be. Yes, struggles and setbacks will come, but even then you'll have a sense of wellbeing because you'll feel His nearness
3) Wisdom. Paul prayed that God would give the Ephesians 'a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him' (Ephesians 1:17). Wisdom is seeing things the right way. Revelation is when God bypasses the limitations of your mind and shows you things you otherwise wouldn't know. Instead of finding a solution to life's problems every now and then, you can walk each day in a 'spirit of wisdom and of revelation.
4) Freedom. 'when you did not know God, you were slaves to those which by nature are no gods' (Galatians 4:8). Without the confidence that comes from knowing God, and your standing before Him, you become a slave to circumstances, emotions, or other people's opinions. Refuse to live that way. Instead, get to know God better.
