Do You Know God?
I don’t do this often, but today I’m joining today with the Five Minute Friday community of writers who write for 5 minutes about a one-word prompt. The Word for this week is KNOW.
The past few weeks, I’ve been engaged in a Bible study on beholding God. Who really is the God of the Bible. The word know worked well with my study this week as the verses I’ve been meditating on are verses regarding God and who He is and why I can trust Him.
Do you know God? If so, who is He? Who is the God that you know?
The Bible says that to fear God is the beginning of knowledge. (Proverbs 1:7) So, if you really know God, then you fear Him. And as you fear Him, you will definitely want to know Him more and more through His Word.
