The People That Do Know Their God
TOPIC: THE PEOPLE THAT DO KNOW THEIR GOD
TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 17:24-58
God, we were told in the book of Genesis 1:1 that created the Heavens and the Earth out of nothing, even out of that we called nothing or think invisible to the eye is God’s. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the ending of all things. “And of His fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.” In Him we move, in Him we live, and in Him we have our being. God is worthy of note, worthy of our attention, He is a jealous God because He is always loving. He shed His love abroad in that while we were yet sinners, His only begotten Son died for our sins. He created all things, but delighted to create man in His own image and likeness. He empowered man to behave like Him. He is a Spirit and those who must worship, serve Him must do so in Spirit and in Truth. Therefore, to do a proper worship and acceptable service to God, you must desire to know Him (Who, What, Where, How of God). It is then that you can offer unto God acceptable and perfect sacrifices.
You must desire a knowledge of Him, which means have awareness of Him and familiarize yourself with Him. The level of God’s awareness you have determines the level of power available to you in doing whatever you plan here on earth. If He knows you through your daily and constant familiarization visit to Him, He will be readily available when you need Him. In the affairs of the World, God is a BIG factor; He is the BIG deal for anybody that wants to do exploit. You must acknowledge Him in all your doings and goings (Proverbs 3:6). For if you desire to do greater works for Jesus, it is under must you know Him. Moses desired to know Him, He became a mighty deliverer and a great prophet (he parted the Red Sea, brought water out of the rock, saw God in glory and many more). If you desire the great exploits of Moses and that of Daniel in the land of bondage, where he ruled and reigned, you must have daily and constant relationship with God. You must be with Him in season and out of season, by this, you will know how He works, how He walks, and how He speaks, in short, you will know His way, not just His acts.
You can imagine Daniel getting another man’s dream and interpreting same, he never shared the same bed with the king and yet relaying a forgotten dream. He was able to do this because of his close relationship with his God; he knew God and he could get the secret overnight. The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant (Daniel 11:32; Psalm 25:14). Abram desired to know God; he became Abraham and father of faith. Joseph had His awareness; he became a Prime Minister in a strange land and ruled over the world affairs. Time will fail me to tell of Samuel, Deborah, David, Elisha, Elijah and the Apostles, because these men knew their God, they were never stranded; they did great exploits in their lifetime. May God open your understanding to know Him (Amen).
