I had heard rumors about You, but now my eyes have seen You.
I’ve been thinking about these words of Job recently, as I’ve been reflecting on what it means to truly know God.
Paul prayed in Colossians 1:10 that we would grow in our knowledge of God. But what does that mean?
It’s certainly not just head knowledge, important as that is.
It’s actually seeing his work in our lives. It’s actually hearing his voice as we read his Word, as we pray, and as we live our daily lives. It’s experiencing his love, grace, and power firsthand in our lives, not just hearing about these things in the lives of other people.
Is that you? Do you truly know God?
May we all be able to say like Job, “I had heard rumors about you, but now my eyes have seen you.”
