Two Ways Of Knowing God

We have been created by our creator to be decisive and rule if we refuse to decide our life other people or circumstances will decide it for us.  “God has decided to let us decide” For me I decide to accept nothing less than His fullness.

Job 22:28 says you will decide a matter and it will be confirmed and light shall shine on your ways.

There are two primary ways of viewing God!

#1–His person revealed through grace and truth in Jesus Christ.

#2– His laws or principles of creation.

The church has better known His person, but the world has better known His laws of creation.

Jesus said: Mt 5:45—That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Lu 16:8–And the Lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.

The laws of creation work for everybody they are natural laws, gravity, sowing and reaping, financial laws, physical laws, laws of association, and laws of attraction etc.etc.

 The person of redemption (Jesus) is known by grace through faith by the Holy Spirit He writes His laws of redemption in our heart and our mind.

We can know the person of redemption yet ignore the natural laws of creation and wonder why God allows us to suffer, but often times it is because we violate natural laws that He put in place at creation that work for everybody always.

On the other hand we may know the laws of creation, but still be unfulfilled in our heart because we do not know the person of redemption “Jesus”

May we come to know Him both as creator and redeemer.

One thought on “Two Ways Of Knowing God

  1. Learning to look around and behold the glory of God revealed in His creation during recent years has brought a new sense of purpose and belonging to my life. I am thankful for the faithful testimony of men that has helped me to know Christ as Redeemer, yet, it took all of creation to fully awaken my inner man. I used to wait for Sunday to come around so I could go to “church” and let me spirit soar in corporate worship but I am now afforded that opportunity at every moment of the day by joining the trees of the field, the mountains, the rocks, the streams, the birds in their praise of the Creator. I am convinced that David developed a heart after God by many nights spent looking into the starry sky as it spoke of God’s faithfulness. Thanks, Scott, for your words and ministry.
