Oh, that we might know the LORD! Let us press on to know Him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.” (Hosea 6:3 NLT)
How well do we know the LORD? We can read the Bible and get a lot of information – that would be what we call head knowledge. This is good but it is not enough. Most important we need heart knowledge. We need that deep longing that only a walk with Jesus will fill. Sometimes we just need to make the effort to know Him. He will reveal Himself through His word in the Bible. I have found that reading the Bible one chapter a day helps me to focus and meditate on that one chapter. Look for something that you had not noticed before. Look for a promise, a warning of what not to do. Look for Jesus in the chapter. God will speak to you through His word. It takes about 3.5 years to go through the Bible.
God wants us to get to know Him. Meditating on His word will bring us closer to Him.
I want you to show love, not offer sacrifices. I want you to know Me more than I want burnt offerings. (Hosea 6:6 NLT)
