KNOWING GOD

CREATED FOR A RELATIONSHIP

 

You were created to have a relationship with God, and God desperately wants to have a relationship with you. God desires that we would look to him for our purpose, our direction, our provision and for our joy and fulfillment.

 

“This is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

John 17:3

 

Just like any relationship, you need to invest into it to see growth. Prayer, Reading Gods word, fasting and listening to the Holy Spirit are all ways to know God on a deeper level, to hear from Him and walk in His power.

READING YOUR BIBLE

 

Reading Gods inspired words is one of the best ways to understand who God is and what his plan is for your life. Simply by reading the Bible 10 minutes a day, God can speak into your own life in ways you have never experienced.

 

“All Scripture is God-breathed, providing hope, direction and meaning to life.”

2 Timothy 3:16 (NLT)

 

PRAYER

 

Prayer is your direct line of communication with God. Prayer is a powerful tool that allows us to communicate directly with the creator of the universe! Jesus set the example by praying often in order to align himself with the Fathers will.

 

“Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

Phillipians 4:6

HOLY SPIRIT

 

The Holy Spirit is a part of the God-head that is given to us as Christians so that we can know truth, hear from god and live with boldness and power. Because of the Holy Spirit, the early church was able to teach people about Jesus with boldness and the church greatly expanded because of it. That same spirit is available to all those who believe in Christ in order to bring glory to God.

 

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.

John 14:26

FASTING

 

Fasting is all about taking our eyes off of physical things that consume much of our time and attention and instead turning that attention to focusing on God. Fasting has gone on for thousands of years and is simply the act of giving up something for a period of time in order to devote your focus and time on God. We encourage people to resource themselves on this topic before they attempt to participate in a fast.

 

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”

Matt 5:6
