Title: Know God on a personal level
( Jeremiah 29: 11-14) For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.I will be found by you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back from captivity.I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the Lord, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”
The word of God says , God has a great plan for his children. He is our Heavenly Father, He has plans to give us future, hope and prosperity and safe us from harm. This plan of God will not manifest in our lives, if we are not coming closer to Him. The plan of God will not manifest when we don’t know Him as our Lord and savior. When we draw closer to Him , He said if we come and pray He will listen. He said We will seek Him and find Him when you seek Him with all our hearts.
(James 4:8) Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.It is very imperative that We come closer to God and know Him on a personal level so that we can be connecting to Him one on one. Without that personal connection with God, we cannot find Him. When we connect to Him on a personal level, then that is when we can feel the power and anointing of God working in our lives.
For instance, many of us have read about the president of our countries, we see them on the TV, and from different kinds of social media, but only those who have personal relationship, who have gone closer to the president on a personal level, that can get something from him directly. God can even be reached faster than any president because He is an omnipresent God. He is everywhere, He is right there with you right now, but you have to acknowledge His presence in your life.
How do you know God on a personal level.? Accept Jesus today as your personal Lord and savior. Confess your sins before Him. (Romans 6:23) Jesus is the only way to see God there is no other way. (John:14:6). Ask Jesus to come into your life and forgive all your sins. He came to reconcile us with God. He came to bring us salvation. Accepting Jesus to come into your life and making Him the God of your life is the first step to draw nearer to God. I pray the Lord will give us understanding of His word in Jesus name.
Prayers: Oh God of Glory, please help me to have personal relation with you. I want to find you oh Lord in glory of your majesty. Reveal yourself to me Lord, I want to behold your glory.
