I just have one question for y’all this evening…it’s something that has been growing within my heart the last few weeks.
Have you tasted Who the Lord is?
I’m sure you’ve heard the Truth many, many times that God is good. Do you know this as merely a fact about God, or have you tasted it, have you experienced His goodness?
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8
Have you tasted that the Lord is gracious (1Pet. 2:3), awesome, loving, true, and real?
Do you really know the Lord for yourself? Meaning, have you learned Who God is by a first-hand relationship, or simply by what you have read or others have taught you?
Who is God to you? What aspects about Him can you say you know because you have spent time with Him? Perhaps He is just God to you right now. Perhaps He is your Savior or Strength. Perhaps He is your Truest Friend, or the Husband of your soul.
Wherever you are in your relationship with Him, I encourage you to press on to know Him better. To really know Him for yourself, not just what others have told you about Him. To know God deeply and intimately. To know His heart.
And when you know His heart, you will know how He feels about sin, you will know what to pray, and I promise, you will be changed.
Like Paul, may we count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus. And may we never get to a place where we stop getting to know God.
