Knowing God Is the Greatest Pursuit in Life

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 126

Do you know GOD well enough that HE could brag on you if HE wanted to? In order for someone to brag about you, they have to know you well. So, if GOD wanted to brag about you, HE would have to know important details about you. How well do you know GOD and can you brag about HIM?

It all begins with the knowledge of GOD. Taking our time getting to know GOD. In Jeremiah 9:23 God says, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches."

There is so many things that people boast about in life, but they forget from where it came from or who permitted success in their life.

What we should boast about is not our bank account, our promotion, education or the degrees we have. GOD says in Jeremiah 9 that there is only one thing in life worth bragging about: "Do you know ME?"

People brag about everything else. They praise you because of your achievements in life, how well someone sings, preach, speaks. People treat you with respect because of your accomplishments. People receive titles because of their achievements.

Pride is like growing a beard. It needs to be clipped daily. Everyday that we get up and think about our achievements and say, "If it were not for the grace of GOD I would not have all this."

Success tempts you to brag about all that. We once again we forget, who should we be talking about. If you really want something to shout about can you brag about knowing GOD?

Part of knowing GOD is hearing the truth of who we are. There are times when we do need to hear the truth about ourselves in order for us to straightened up and walk the way GOD would like us to walk. Thanking GOD everyday for telling the truth about ourselves and realizing the without HIM we do not exist.

Daily prayer and reading the HOLY BIBLE will draw us closer to GOD. HE will reveal things to us that we do not yet understand. Everything in this world is temporary, but the things that we do for GOD is permanent.

If you truly want to know GOD take time to know HIM so you can boast about HIM. Thank HIM for everything you have achieve. Everything we do is for the Glory of GOD not for the glory of man.

I am a blogger. I love GOD and love teaching about HIM. GOD has done amazing things in my life. I would like to invite you to know GOD more and more each day.
