We realize we were created to know and enjoy God,
as He has revealed Himself in the Bible, and to live for His glory.
He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice,
A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and Upright is He.
"And this is eternal life, that they may know You,
the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
“Whether you eat or drink, of whatever you do, do all for the glory of God.”
1 Corinthians 10:31
As we begin to comprehend Who God is, we realize that everything does not revolve around us. We are God’s workmanship, created beings, made in His image. Our sole purpose is to bring honour and glory to His name. He is the one Being who has the right to do whatever He wants with us. He is the Master and Ruler of our lives. He is King and we are His subjects. But He is a righteous and good King, a Holy and Almighty King. He knows what is best for us – all the time.
It’s our responsibility to learn about Him and know Him. He is willing to reveal Himself to us as we stop trying to run our own lives and surrender to Him. As we surrender our hearts to Him, through faith in Jesus Christ, we enter into an intimate, connected relationship with God. In this, we come to know Him, and He pours His love in and through us by His Spirit.
Psalms 139 is one Psalms of many that reveals the heart of God to us. God penned this Psalm through David, the shepherd boy who became King. David was said to be a man after God’s own heart. He knew God and, more importantly, God knew Him.
