Don't you love it when you know your spouse of friend , so well that you answer for them & you're exactly right? That speaks very highly of your relationship with that person! You know them that well because you wanted to spend lots of time with them & learn everything you possibly could about them!!!
Do you know God that well? For some, going to church on Sunday morning is who God is to them. For others, it's being in church every time the doors are open, or goin through the motions, like the Lords Supper, VBS, .....doing all the "rituals".
The psalmist in Psalms 63 is very specific about WHO God is to Him. The way he feels provokes an action, as well! Here are a few of the psalmist responses to who God is to him: his God, powerful, glorious, unfailing love, satisfaction, helper, shelter, strong, able to hold him securely/security!!
He feels the land is parched & weary, with no water; therefore, he earnestly searches for God! He feels a longing for God, & His unfailing love. He feels satisfaction & safe & protected by God. Which prompts him to praise God , lifting his hands in praise & singing to Him!! Read through psalm 63:1-8, and make a list of what the psalmist feels & what he does.
Once that has been completed, ask yourself, "WHO IS GOD TO__________(your name in blank). Write it down, tell it to God, & reflect (& write ) on what that makes you do!! Do you need to know God better? Deeper? More intimately? Write down how you can do this. Decide to work on them one at a time! When you have mastered one, then start on another!!
As Christians, we will never reach the place on this earth where we have arrives! There's always room for improvement!! Decide right here at this moment you are going to work on getting to know God better by spending more time just talking to Him, listening for His Voice, & truly studying His Word (not reading through it)! God knows every single thing about you!! I want to know Him the way He knows me!!!
Father, I want to know as much about You as I possibly can!! I am going to spend time each day trying to get to know you better. I want to be as close as I can get to you!!
