To Know God

But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?Galatians 4:9


Why?  Why do we do it?  Why do we turn from our God and follow after the things of this world? 

Wrapped in my Saviour's arms I know all is well, that I am whole, complete and secure.  Then something flashes by, it catches my eye and I'm gone.  Like a toddler after a bright red ball, I dash out into the 'street' and into the path of danger.  Danger from the snares of the world, the snares of things that will not fulfill, snares of all the worthless and fleeting things or this life.  I know my God and yet I leave the safety of His love to chase after the bright red balls of this time.

But my God is good, He is so good!  He is creating in me a heart, a pure heart that longs only for Him! 

But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.  Psalm 1:2

This is where God is leading me, to delight in His word and thus, in Him.

The book of James says in verse 8, Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

So I draw, turning from the emptiness around me to my all loving God.

I will love You, O Lord, my strength.  The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;  my God, my strength, in who I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.  Psalm 18:1,2

I am growing closer and closer to Him each day and am falling more in love with Him moment by moment.

Give thanks to the God of gods.  Give thanks to the Lord of lords.  Give thanks to the God of heaven.  His love endures forever. Psalm 136: 2-3,26


 I wait patiently for what God is laying before myself and my family, seeing Him working in our lives is something all to marvelous to comprehend, let alone explain!  For now I am content to work on my relationship with my God, to grow closer and become more personal with Him. 

I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands.  Psalm 63:4
