FAITH CAPSULE: Knowing God will be giving accessible to unfailing power of God in life.
The Israelites needed to know the name of their God. One and only creator is God. He spoke to Moses, “…Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’” (Exodus 3:15) Just has the Israelites needed to know God, today every living soul need to know God. God alone is the God to all generations. God is the unchanging changer; He is God of all generations that reverses irreversible. 1 Timothy 6:15-16 described God, “…which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.” Knowing the name of God will be giving man access to unfailing power of God for deliverance and preservation. Just knowing about the name of God is not enough for gaining access to the power of God. What man knows about God will determine the standing of man before God in this wicked world.
Man, that knows God will have the fear of God. Psalm 33:18 stated the blessings of living life in the fear for God, “Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy.” Without doubt, man should know God to fear God because the fear of the Lord is His treasure. (Isaiah 33:6) Man, that knows to fear God is certain to be righteous before God. Bible recorded the blessings of man that is righteous before God stating, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” (Proverbs 18:10) Do you know God to be running to God as your strong tower?
The name of God is powerful, and His name is magnified. Psalm 138:2 testified, “I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.
Think of it to know that the word of God is magnified indeed and in truth because there is nothing God can do without His word. In the beginning, it was the spoken word of God that created all things. The word of God can terminate struggle when it locates man with need for deliverance. It was the word of God that brought out Lazarus from the grave of four days. The name of God is a strong tower and His word is magnified. It is time to live life as one that knows God.
Prayer for today: Ask God for the grace to know God indeed and in truth.
