Understanding of God

People try to understand God, to figure God out, how God works, how things fit together and they acquire knowledge, they read the Bible and when they know the Scriptures well, they think they know how things work and how they will work, only to find out that they know nothing. The only way to know God is to know Jesus and through our relationship with Him, He reveals God to us and we gain understanding, in depth insight. I read in 1 John 5:20 “And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding in order that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.” Jesus will reveal Himself and the Father unto us if we come into close relationship with Him. You can study as much as you like, you will just get more and more frustrated because things won’t make sense to you but when you are in that close relationship with Jesus, then things fall into place, you gain understanding.
The Apostle James wrote in James 1:5-8 “But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” You can only share in the secrets of God, the intimate knowledge and understanding of God, if you are totally set on Him, if you totally obey Jesus Christ and your mind is set on Him, on knowing Him on being pleasing to Him. If you are truly a child of God and you want to know more about your Father, it is then that Jesus brings you into the presence of the Father. You don’t get it through studies, you get it through a close relationship with Jesus. Obedience, prayer, spending time with Him. Then Jesus becomes REAL to you and you experience God as “my Father.”
May Jesus bless you.
