Christian Women's Devotion on Personal Relationship With God
God has called us by name. He chose us named us. Yet we have not known Him! God wants us to get to know Him - personally.
I wrote this poem Knowing
God some time ago when I used to walk my son to school.
At the top of our driveway is a bus stop. Each
day as we walked passed, we saw a man standing
there waiting for a bus. He was there every
morning. Over a period of time, as I walked my
son to school, I became familiar with his face.
Though I was familiar with what he looked like,
I never knew him. I didn't know where he came
from, what his name was, or anything about him.
He was just a familiar face to me.
I think of that in relation to how it is with
and us. We may know about Him, we may even go
church, and have been in church all our lives
think we know God. But do we really know Him
intimately? Has He made His home in your heart?
The only way we can truly know Him intimately,
with a personal daily relationship with Him, is
to invite Jesus Christ into our hearts. That is
the first step to being transformed from inside out.
We need to move beyond just knowing about
Him, to really knowing Him intimately.
Ephesians 3: 19 says, "[That you may really come] to
through experience for yourselves]
the love of Christ,
which far surpasses mere knowledge
that you may be filled [through
all your being] unto all
the fullness of God [may have
the richest measure of the
divine presence, and become
a body wholly filled and
flooded with God Himself]!" (AMPC)
Ephesians 3:17 says, "May
Christ through your faith
[actually] dwell (settle down,
abide, make His permanent
home) in your hearts! May you be
rooted deep in love and
founded securely on
If you do not 'Know God' in the way you have
if Jesus has not made His permanent home in your
and if you would like to find out more about who
is and how you can invite Him into your life, click
