To Know Him

To Know Him

We have to go beyond human reasoning to catch a glimpse of the Love and  Goodness of God. We don’t have a reference point in this life where we can measure Gods love and goodness towards us.  The verse in Ephesians 3:20 ” Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think”  shows me that if I want to get closer to Him I have to commune with God in a different way, a higher way, greater then asking and thinking.  My  mind cannot catch up with Gods goodness and Love for me.   It has been my desire in prayer lately to find ways to contact Gods heart  in ways deeper and more clear then anything my natural senses can manage. It is like a new born baby who cannot communicate with words, can not understand language, but can find his or her mothers heart by the mothers touch, the way she holds him, and the tone of  her voice.  We know that as that new born grows and gets older the contact with his mother increases, it is not only limited to touch, and tone of voice, but increases to language. I feel this is the same with God our Father. As we have become new born babes in Christ we grew on the sincere milk of His word, we have the ability to see Him through the things he has created (Nature), we can see and hear Him through other people anointed by Him, but I am finding out that in the Spirit, I CAN KNOW HIM. In the Gospel of John 17:3 ” this is eternal life that they may KNOW You the only true  God and Jesus Christ who you have sent”  Eternal life is not just living forever, for all humans are going to live forever, some will be living with the Father and Jesus, and some with the devil, but this type of life Jesus is talking about is defined by the statement “This is eternal life, THAT THEY MAY KNOW YOU, that word Know is a relationship and intimate word, it is like when Adam knew Eve in Gen 4:1 and they had a son Cain. There is a place in God, an intimate place, we can enter into, where we can KNOW Him, My Quest is to find this place. Jesus spoke much about this divine one relationship,  in the same 17 chapter of John verse 21, Jesus says ” That they all may be one, as You Father are in Me, and I in You, that  they also may be one in Us” This Divine oneness, this KNOWING, I am convinced is that next step or place of intimacy our loving heavenly Father and Jesus is drawing us into. So I am going to stop resisting, and submit to the God of the entire universe who saw me, fell in love with me, pursued me, and now wants to have an eternal life relationship with me. I don’t know about you but I AM TAKEN.
