Get to Know the God Who Knows You

5 He [Adonai] determined in advance that through Yeshua the Messiah we would be his sons- in keeping with his pleasure and purpose.  7 In union with him, through the shedding of his blood, we are set free – our sins are forgiven; this accords with the wealth of grace 8 he has lavished on us.  In all wisdom and insight 9 he has made known to us his secret plan, which by his own will he designed beforehand in connection with the Messiah

(Ephesians 1:5, 7-9, CJB)

Before beginnings, before God said, “Light Be!”, he knew you.  Of course he did, he’s God.  He knew you inside and out BEFORE he called you, and he called you anyway.  He called you to be his child.  What an awesome privilege!  We get to be children of the Most High God!  God knows you, and he wants you to know him.

We become his children when we accept Jesus as Lord.  From that moment, we have the right to a relationship and a right to fellowship with not only Jesus the Messiah but also with the Creator of the Universe!  What an awesome privilege it is!  We can fellowship with God, through his son Jesus, the same way Adam did before the fall and the same way the Enoch did. That means, among other things, that we can and should converse with him throughout the day.  We should invite him into our activities and take time to hear what he is saying back to us through his word, through promptings in our spirits, confirmations we receive from those around us, and scriptures he brings back to our memory.

In other words, do not let yourselves be conformed to the standards of [this world].  Instead, keep letting yourselves be transformed by the renewing of your minds; so that you will know what God wants and will agree that what he wants is good, satisfying and able to succeed. (Romans 12:2, CJB)

The more time we spend with him, the more we discover who he is and how he operates.  We uncover his will for us and the good works he has called us to complete.  As we fellowship with him, we begin to transform because the more time we spend with him, the more we experience his goodness and the more we trust him.  The more we trust God, the more of God we get to experience.  As this cycle continues, day by day, we find ourselves doing what the bible calls, growing in grace.  We change due to new mindsets, increased spiritual fortitude, and with an internal reservoir of peace.
