Knowing God...

"Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass." Psalm 37: 3-5

Seems like such a wonderful and easy thing to do right? Trust and delight yourself in the Lord and His ways and He'll give you what you want most? Why not do this? Why not put your life in the hands of the one who knows you deeper than anyone else ever will? God's been working in my heart to do this. Ok, so I've learned to trust Him in everything and give Him control. And now, I need to delight myself in His provision over me. I've been in inspired, not by teachings from Pastor Bob or from circumstances in my life that has drawn me to Him, but by high school kids. By working with these high schoolers in Boca and seeing them grow deeper in their walk with God, by finding an intimacy with their Creator, I am inspired to draw closer to God and to delight myself in Him, always. Andrew Lundy has been doing a phenomenal job in teaching them and harvesting friendship in their lives.

My next step is to create more of an intimate relationship with God. To learn what it is to "Know God." We're doing sexpectations in high school this month and last week, Andrew was talking about the need of guys and girl to have an intimate relationship with someone else. We were created for that purpose. I want that intimate relationship with God. He already knows me, and now I want to know Him. My bible study this past week has been about understanding God. By developing more of an intimate relationship with Him, and will understand Him.

Proverbs 2: 2-7 talks about ways to gain wisdom, "incline your ear to wisdom and apply your heart to understanding; yes if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasure; then you will understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding."

That passage is amazing! Here is my guide to know God! My favorite part is "if you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasure; then you will understand the fear o the Lord" It's talking about seeking the word of God. My bible study this week said to take the word and devour it. Search it, mull over it, find the truths and live them out. This is my goal.

Goal for 2010: To seek God. To know Him intimately and to delight myself in Him.
