Topic: How Well Do You Know Your God (Part 2)
Today Monday July 31, 2017
“And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” Romans 4:21
Yesterday we were able to establish some truths about knowing God. We used Abraham as a good example. Circumstances and hopeless situations tried to lie to Abraham about who God is but he stood his ground and the bible said he didn’t wave, he did not reason or consider the hopelessness of his situation. As far as Abraham was concerned, if God has said it, then that’s it.
This is what knowing God is all about; where you don’t have second opinions about His awesome personality. You can know God to that level where no cunning lie of the devil can make you think otherwise of your God. When a man knows God to this extent the bible says he shall do exploits, he shall do the unimaginable. No wonder the same Abraham was ready to sacrifice Isaac his only son when God tested him.
In Hebrews 11 the bible said Abraham believed that God was able to still raise him up again. Before that time, no one was recorded to have been brought back to life yet Abraham believed that God will do it in his own situation. Why would he believe like that? Because he knew that he knew and he was completely persuaded of the ability of His God. That is spiritual understanding of God; knowing what God can do and being completely sure that he can or has done it even before you see it physically.
As pointed out yesterday, you can grow in this understanding by constantly receiving the word of God with a strong desire to increase in the knowledge of God. Have a great day.

Lord I bless you for spiritual understanding that is increased upon me as I receive your word each day. Amen.
