The weekend, June 28 & 29, 2008 - Knowing God - Psalms 81:10-16

Most people want to be understood. We may have many acquaintances, but we need to feel “known” by those we love most. This also applies to how God views our relationship with Him. He knows our every thought. God can count the number of hairs on our head. We also should be learning His ways. How our Father thinks. What motivates Him. What His plan and purpose are.

Although we desire to know the Lord’s mind, He makes it quite clear that this is impossible. In Isaiah 55:9, He tells us, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

This is why God gives us His Spirit. The Holy Spirit can teach us and reveal what we otherwise couldn’t understand. Growing in this spiritual understanding is necessary to have a deep personal relationship with God. We must know His ways before we can walk in them.

Our obedience not only glorifies our heavenly Father; it’s also best for us. Following Jesus doesn’t eliminate pain. It also doesn’t ensure everything will happen as we would choose. But we have assurance the Lord loves us and has a plan for our lives. He gives us strength and stability to follow Him, no matter where His path may lead us. He’s truly a loving Father to give such goodness and kindness to His children.
