Is it your heart cry to KNOW God? To press on to KNOW Him? In Hosea 4 we read, “Hear the word of the Lord, O children of Israel, for the Lord has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land. There is no faithfulness or steadfast love, and no knowledge of God in the land;……My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me.”
This is pretty strong language. God has a controversy with us, too, not just the people of Israel. We pursue all kinds of things rather than knowledge of God.
Hosea 6:1 encourages us… “Come, let us return to the Lord;
for he has torn us, that he may heal us;
he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.
After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will raise us up,
that we may live before him.
Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord;
his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers,
as the spring rains that water the earth.”
For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice,
the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
I hope this website is an encouragement to dig in to your Bible and get to KNOW God, as He reveals Himself to us. Return to the Lord. Press on to KNOW Him. God desires our love and our knowledge of Him, rather than our gifts.
As you read, don’t just accumulate facts and check of the chapters in your Bible as you would a to-do list, but make getting to KNOW God your aim. Press on to KNOW Him!
