Know that God is:
God is the eternal God. Everything there is in the heavens and on the earth—every planet, every plant, every person, and every creature had a first moment, a first day, or a first breath—and that “first” came from God. There has never been an eternal moment without God…from everlasting to everlasting He is God.
There is a God you can turn to and believe in. Trust God to be true to His word.
But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]. Hebrews 11:6 (AMP)
The heavens are Yours, and the earth is Yours; everything in the world is Yours—You created it all. Psalm 89:11 (NLT)
Know who God is:
It is God’s nature, character, and attributes that reveal to us who God is. God is love…is good…is just…is great…is all-powerful…is all-knowing…is all-present…is merciful…is compassionate…is faithful…is true…is glorious…is loveliness…is holiness…is righteousness…that is who God is…and so much more!
No one is like God. Trust Him with all your heart and all your life.
He prayed, “O LORD, God of Israel, there is no God like You in all of heaven and earth. You keep Your covenant and show unfailing love to all who walk before You in wholehearted devotion. 2 Chronicles 6:14 (NLT)
Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the highest heavens. You have done such wonderful things. Who can compare with You, O God? Psalm 71:19 (NLT)
O LORD God of Heaven’s Armies! Where is there anyone as mighty as You, O LORD? You are entirely faithful… Psalm 89:8 (NLT)
Know the ways God has revealed Himself:
God is not hidden away in a far and dark corner of the universe. He is not a mystery God who conceals His identity from us. He has revealed Himself in many sure and certain ways including—His creation, our conscience, His Word, His Holy Spirit, and through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only way to see and know the Father.
God will be found if you seek Him. Trust Him as your Creator.
He (Jesus) is the image of the invisible God. Colossians 1:15 (NKJV)
Jesus replied, “Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father!” John 14:9 (NLT)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. John 14:6-9 (NKJV)
Know God is knowable:
God is a divine person. He thinks, He feels, He wills. He desires to be known and to know us through a personal relationship. God is knowable and can be known by anyone whose heart fully seeks to know Him. He wants us to be in a relationship with Him…He as our heavenly Father and we as His children whom He loves and cares for with all His heart.
You can know God personally. Trust Him to commune with you.
But if from there you will seek (inquire for and require as necessity) the Lord your God, you will find Him if you [truly] seek Him with all your heart [and mind] and soul and life. Deuteronomy 4:29 (AMP)
But then, indeed, when you did not know God, you served those which by nature are not gods. But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God… Galatians 4:8 (NKJV)
Know God’s Son:
To know the Son is to know the Father, for the Son is the way for us to see God in truth. Jesus Christ came to us and called to us to come to Him—It is not His will to be a stranger to us, but to be our Savior; it is not His will to be a foreigner to us, but to be our brother; it is not His will to be an enemy to us, but to be our Friend. We can know Him personally, intimately, abundantly. We can commune with Him, break bread with Him, fellowship with Him, walk with Him, and delight in Him throughout our lives.
Place your total trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord. Trust Him to save you and guide you.
And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. John 17:3 (NKJV)
“My Father has entrusted everything to me. No one truly knows the Son except the Father, and no one truly knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”
Matthew 11:27 (NLT)
