Knowing about God vs. Knowing Him Intimately
Now therefore, I pray, if I have found grace in Your sight, show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. Exodus 33:13
There are two ways you can know God: casually or intimately. You can know about God, or you can know God. To know “about” God is to know His works. To know God intimately is to know His way.
Moses asked to know God intimately. But most people know God on the first level. All they know are the works of God. They know what God does, but they don’t know the ways of God. Not everybody, even those who claim to be saved, knows God intimately. They don’t know who God is. How sad it will be in the resurrection to meet a God face to face that we have not known heart to heart.
As you go through your day, ask God to show you His ways and to reveal to you how they are in contrast to the way the world thinks. Align your thoughts with His ways. You learn His ways by reading His Word.
