Bite-Sized Bible Studies: How Well Do You Know God?

I have written for him 

the great things of My law, 

But they were considered 

a strange thing.

(Hosea 8:12)

Jesus answered and said unto them, 
"Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, 
nor the power of God."  
(Matthew 22:29)

Jesus promised to send us the Holy Spirit to guide us, comfort us and to teach us. We can know what God is speaking to us and we can understand His Word. Jesus promised,

I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Mt. 28:20).

How well do we know God's Word? Is His Word the standard that we live by? Do we seek God daily and do we spend time with Him in our Bibles? Do we consult His holy precepts for direction and wisdom before we make decisions? Is His Way our way? Do we live the way we do because of our culture and upbringing or because God's Word has changed us/is changing us? Do we know God? Do we know what He desires for us? Do we err, not knowing and understanding His heart, nor His power? Is His Word a strange thing to us?

The writer to the Hebrews exhorts us:

Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away (Hebrews 2:1).

Our walk with the Lord and Christian life is...

'Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' Says the LORD of hosts (Zech. 4:6).

Jesus prayed that God would cause you to grow in your walk with Him through His Word.

Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth (John 17:17).

What a tragedy that we have God’s Word but it is a strange thing to many of us and we don’t know it! Spend some time with the Lord, in His Word, today. Let the Lord minister straight to your heart.
