Thus says the LORD,
“Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom,
let not the mighty man boast of his might,
let not a rich man boast of his riches;
but let him who boasts boast of this,
that he understands and knows Me,
that I am the LORD who exercises loving kindness, justice and righteousness on earth;
for I delight in these things,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 9:24
Jesus said, “And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” John 17:3
Do you want to know God? If you have never come to him before there is a way to know him. You just ask him to help you get to know him and then read the Bible. He will reveal himself to everyone who asks.
“I will give them a heart to know Me, for I am the LORD; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.” Jeremiah 24:7
Years ago, a blogger, who was considering becoming a Christian, asked her followers, “Are you glad you became a Christian?” I said, “It was the best decision I’ve ever made.”
There is nothing like knowing you can turn to God about everything in your life. To know the Creator of the universe is interested in you and cares about your day. He cares about your children, your job, your health, your desires and thoughts. He wants to walk and talk with you, share his love and comfort. He wants to fill you with love, confidence and peace. Believing all this may take time, but it will come eventually if you don’t give up seeking.
Once you understand God loves and accepts you just as you are, you never feel alone.
