I believe we must grow in the knowledge of God. Daily prayer and Bible reading are two of the primary keys in that process. Other things help us grow, as well. One, in particular, is having experience through difficult and challenging times. When we face an uncertain situation, and then God brings us through; we can look back and realize that we are closer to Him than ever. We will also discover that our knowledge of who He is has significantly increased. Through every storm, we grow, through every battle we grow, and in every trial, we learn more about who He is.
There is something else that happens when we go through these difficult circumstances. We not only grow in the knowledge of who God is, but we also learn more about who we are in Him. Our understanding of who we are in Jesus increases each time He brings us through. We become more confident in God as our knowledge of Him elevates, but that should also cause us to become more confident in ourselves through Him. It’s a powerful thing to say, I know who He is; but what a remarkable revelation to declare, I KNOW WHO I AM IN HIM!!!
You can face this trial, this storm, and this day, knowing who God is, and also knowing who you are in Him.
For in Him, we live, and move, and have our being.
