“To know God! What a gift to truly know His will and desires. To truly know God, we have to know what He has to say. We get this from the Bible. As we get to know God, read His word, and spend that time with Him our hearts will be transformed. We will desire Him more and continue to find greater joy in His presence; our desires will begin to mirror His own.” Lyndsey Baker
“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1 (NLT)
The Bible is very literally our textbook for knowing God, because it is His very Word, preserved for us. Hebrews 4:12a says, “For the word of God is alive and powerful.” What a precious gift to have the very essence of God in word form. But we must study it to know Him and allow Him to transform our hearts to be like His. Are you getting to know Him? What can you start or stop doing in the new year to help you grow closer to Him?
