I have been reading a book I had back in college. J.I. Packer wrote Knowing God in 1973 and many people have been moved by his work. I wanted to dust off the cover and rediscover what it means to know God and walk with our great Creator. Do you want to make the most of this life? I want to milk this life for all that it has to offer. The Bible reminds us this is only truly possible as we know God and are known by him.
Packer helps us in our pilgrimage to knowing God deep in our soul.
What's the best thing in life, bringing more joy, delight, and contentment than anything else? Knowledge of God. "This is what the Lord says: 'Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me'" Jeremiah 9:23-24
(excerpt from Knowing God by J.I. Packer)
Ponder this over the next few days. Do you know God? Does God know you?
"Be still and know that I am God." Ps 46:10
