How Can I Know God Better?
Most every Christian I have met wants to know God better. They want to know Him closely and intimately. But sometimes they don’t have any specific steps to take to get there.
An important step in getting to know God better is to learn from His Word what He is like. Study Jesus in the Word to find out what God is like. Whatever you see Jesus doing is what God wants to do right now – FOR YOU!
Acts 10:38 – You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.
This is the nature of God now and forever – going about doing good and healing all. When you know God from His Word, you learn what He is like, what He would say and do.
Another step in getting to know God is to personally and regularly spend time with Him in prayer. I am not speaking of coming to Him with your list of prayer requests but coming to Him to spend time with Him for the sake of developing friendship and intimacy. This is the way you would develop a better relationship with any person.
