Topic: To Know God, Know His Word [Seeds of Destiny 19 June 2019 Devotional]
The knowledge of God is the greatest of all knowledge. It is the bedrock or foundation for every reasonable knowledge. The knowledge of God is critical to the fulfilment of life and destiny.
SCRIPTURE: And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Daniel 11:32
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Diligent questions of enquiry from God’s Word reveal a dimension of the knowledge of God.
The knowledge of God is the greatest of all knowledge. It is the bedrock or foundation for every reasonable knowledge. The knowledge of God is critical to the fulfilment of life and destiny. This is why our anchor Scripture makes it clear that they that know their God shall be strong and do exploits (Daniel 11:32). The knowledge of God was the heart cry and passion of both Moses and Paul (Exodus 33:13, Philippians 3:10). So, the quest to know God places a person on the pedestal for greatness.
Now, the question is, how do we know God?
The knowledge of God is wrapped up in His Word. We know God through His Word. When you study, meditate on God’s Word and ask Him questions, He would speak to you and reveal Himself to you. When you ask, you shall receive (Matthew 7:7). The problem with many of us is that we do not ask God questions when we read His Word. There are some things in God’s Word that are only revealed when we ask God questions. There are some things God would not tell you until you ask Him. For instance. it was when Moses asked God who He is that God told Moses His Name.
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. Exodus 3:13-14
It was a diligent quest to know God through asking of questions that revealed the name, ‘I AM THAT IAM’ that we all call God today. Beloved, diligent questions of enquiry from God’s Word reveal uncommon dimensions of the knowledge of God.
