Know God by Experience

If you really want to get to know someone, spend some time with them. An occasional encounter can be very misleading. It’s the reality of day-to-day attitudes, choices, and actions that show who we really are.

Moses had some trouble with God calling him to lead His people out of Egypt. He knew there were some very-real questions about whether the people would believe that their God called Moses, who was not raised as a Hebrew, but as an Egyptian prince. He knew the people would have bad feelings toward him, since Moses was the only Hebrew of his age group. The rest had been killed by Pharoah’s men and Moses was the only survivor of that purge. So, Moses knew that the people would want to know what-kind-of-God would call Moses to lead them. Moses asked God, “Who shall I say sent me?”

Exodus 3:14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I am’ has sent me to you.”

As you get to know God better, you will find that God wants to use you in His plan for the rest of the world around you. We can doubt that, because we know every flaw in our personality. But God doesn’t know any perfect people. Though He is perfect, He desires to know you personally and for you to know Him. Though He is perfect, He uses imperfect people like you and myself to accomplish His will.

That’s a hard one to understand, but if you think about it, God isn’t required to explain Himself to us. He, the Creator, has the right to command us.

John 14:21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.

This message will point out that God loves and knows us and desires for us to know Him. That means YOU! It’s incredible, I know, but it is true. As you spend time with Him and experience His presence, you will grow to know Him better as He shows Himself to you.
