Truths about God in my life

Who is God?

I did not know who God is. 

Do I know Him?

I did not know the real Him.

Do I have that intimate relationship with Him?

I thought He hated me because I kept on sinning--and I still do. I thought He did not want anything to do with a sinner like me. 

But I was wrong.

I am weak in the human flesh. So weak... But that did not and never cause Him to love me less, instead, He loves me more, more than I can imagine.

You might be thinking how do I know that He loves me no matter what. How do I know that He will never love me less? How can I be sure that despite my weakness or in its plural form I am loved and protected? 
In any human relationship, we must have an intimate relationship with a person to know them better and the truths about him or her. We spend time with that person and talk to them on a regular basis. And just like in human relationships, to have an intimate relationship with God, we also need to spend time with Him like attending Sunday worship, having quiet time with Him, being part of a small group or Bible study, talking and listening to Him through prayers. 

By spending time with Him through my quiet time, I am knowing more about Him and putting my trust in Him as a grow and live my life with Him. His promises to you and me, I hold them, dear, to my heart because I know Him, I know His truest character and He never fails. 

Psalm 62 CEV is the Scripture during my quiet time with Him last Sunday, June 14. It is only now that God is allowing me to post this blog entry. This chapter says:

God Is Powerful and Kind

    1 Only God can save me,
    and I calmly wait for[a] him.
2 God alone is the mighty rock[b]
    that keeps me safe
    and the fortress
    where I am secure.

3 I feel like a shaky fence
    or a sagging wall.
    How long will all of you
    attack and assault me?
4 You want to bring me down
    from my place of honor.
You love to tell lies,
and when your words are kind,
    hatred hides in your heart.

5 Only God gives inward peace,
    and I depend on him.
6 God alone is the mighty rock
    that keeps me safe,
    and he is the fortress
    where I feel secure.
7 God saves me and honors me.
    He is that mighty rock
    where I find safety.

8 Trust God, my friends,
    and always tell him
each one of your concerns.
    God is our place of safety.

9 We humans are only a breath;
    none of us are truly great.
All of us together weigh less
    than a puff of air.
10 Don’t trust in violence
or depend on dishonesty
    or rely on great wealth.

11 I heard God say two things:
    “I am powerful,
12     and I am very kind.”
The Lord rewards each of us
    according to what we do.

I am not an expert in Bible verses but these are the truths about God that are revealed through His word on Psalm 62:

1. He is the only one who can save me no one else (Psalm 62:1).

1 John 5:11-12 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life.

2. He, alone, keeps me safe (Psalm 62:2).

Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my protector; he is my strong fortress. My God is my protection, and with him I am safe. He protects me like a shield; he defends me and keeps me safe.

3. Only He can give me inward peace (Psalm 62:5).

Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

4. God honors me because He loves me (Psalm 62:7).

Isaiah 41:10 ESV Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

5. God is a trusted friend, my confidant (Psalm 62:8).

John 15:15 ESV No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.

6. God is powerful and very kind (Psalm 62:11-12).

Psalm 147:5 ESV Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.

7. He is a rewarder (Psalm 62:12).

Hebrews 11:6 KJV But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Reboot your life and start your journey with Him now!

Know God more! Be intimate with Him! Have that intimate relationship with Him!
