Each day passes one into the next and I find myself engulfed in the struggles that each one brings my way. The weariness settles in and zaps the joy of my soul. I lose the ability to see God even though all around me his presence is evident in even the smallest of moments; the radiant colors of the falling leaves, the bluest sky against the purest white clouds, the laughter of a child or the smile of a stranger. All of these and so much more He offers me as He reaches out to me “that I might know Him”. That I might come to realize him for who he is, that I might see the magnitude of his power, that I might remember just how mighty he is and that he can take each struggle and turn it into a victory . . . “That I May Know Him”!!
“Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the Lord he is God; there is none else beside him”. Deuteronomy 4:35
Oh that I might know him and remember him for who he is, the Creator of all life, the Master of the Universe. How is it that I so soon forget and lose sight of all the wonders he has brought to pass in my life.
“But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?” Galatians 4:9
How soon I forget, how soon I return to that from which he brought me. Oh that I might truly know him !!!
“And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death” Philippians 3:9-10
