Diving in!

I'm diving into God's Word and going deep. I'm seeking greater insight and knowledge in the things of God. I want so much more of Him and His presence!

What's great about this hunger is the Bible tells us that we can know these things because we have been given the Holy Spirit who knows the thoughts of God. Check out 1Corin 2:9-14 NKJV, 

9But as it is written:

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

10But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him?Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.12Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
13These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 

As long as we belong to God and have received His Holy Spirit we can ask Him to reveal more of who He is to us. To give greater revelation as we read the Bible. 

This is my hearts desire! I want, more then anything, to know my God in a deeper way, to know His heart, His thoughts, and to know that I know that I know what it is He is asking me to do.

1"My son, if you receive my words,
And treasure my commands within you,
2So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
3Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
4If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
5Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
6For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
7He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
8He guards the paths of justice,
And preserves the way of His saints.
9Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
Equity and every good path.
10When wisdom enters your heart,
And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
11Discretion will preserve you;
Understanding will keep you,"  Proverbs 2:1-11

 Just keep going deeper in His Word! Go deeper in your praise and worship time! Ask Him to reveal Himself to you and He will! Be blessed today as you continue to daily seek His presence!

  1. That's so good Robin. I've been in the same place, really hungry to know Him better. It's funny how we can make it so complicated to know Him better. The other day I was wrestling with understanding something but then I simply asked Him. A short time later - BOOM! - there was the answer! He really is alive and eager for us to know Him!
