Many people say that they know God. Some may know of God. But who can truly know God, except that He reveal Himself to us?
Revelation can be described as an unveiling. In 2 Corinthians 3:18 says, “So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord- who is Spirit- makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image.” As God removes the veil from our eyes or understanding, we will be able to see Him by the spirit and come to know Him in a greater way.
God desires to reveal himself to us, yet we can cause a separation from God by our sin. Living a sinful life will cause our hearts to become hardened so we struggle to hear God. We must acknowledge our sin and repent so that we can hear God more clearly. 1 John 1:9 tells us that if we confess our sins, God is faithful to forgive and cleanse us. He will not keep us away when we come to Him with a contrite heart.
God’s word can reveal God to us. John 1:14 tells us that the Word of God became flesh and dwelled among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” As we learn His word, we will learn about Jesus.
Holy Spirit will reveal God to us also. John 16:13 says, “But when He, the Spirit of truth comes He will guide you into all truth.” He will teach us about God and His Kingdom. In 1 Corinthians 2:10, it says, “But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches out all things, yes the deep things of God.” Holy Spirit is with us always. We can ask Him to show us those deep things.
As we seek God, He promises to let us find Him. In fact, it is He that puts the desire to know Him inside of our hearts. As we connect with Him by faith, He is sure to answer our heart’s cry to know Him more.
