Understanding God by Star
I DON’T understand God….(let me clarify) that is, in my heart. I think I understand God in my head to an exceptional level. I have several degrees, one being a Masters of Divinity in Theology so of course I understand God in my head right? But my heart…now that’s a different story. I can read about how much God loves me, but it’s taken at least 8 years of living for Christ before my heart has just started to believe that God might actually really love ME….little ol’ me! What a confession! I think that’s the problem with most Christian people, we know a lot of biblical words, but we don’t overflow of our acquaintance with God’s character until we begin to truly know him. Over time, we learn from Him and in turn, our experience naturally flows out to other people. I think we instinctively sense a degree of authenticity. Our words will have minimal impact or appeal until our heart knows what we claim to believe.
Psalms 100:3 Know and fully recognize with gratitude that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. (AMP version)
