“I don’t want the world to define God for me. I want the Holy Spirit to reveal God to me.” ~A.W. Tozer
As I read this quote, it reminded me of the necessity of not only learning about God…but to actually receive a personal revelation of who God is. This revelation (deep spiritual knowing) can only happen in and through the Holy Spirit.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be satisfied with only head knowledge about the Lord. I want to have an encounter with Him, to speak with Him, and to hear Him speak to me. I desire for the Holy Spirit to reveal the deep things of God. I desire to have such a hunger and thirst for the Lord, nothing else will satisfy!
I am thankful for the encounters and revelations that I have already received. Thank You, Lord!! But, I know that a relationship is ongoing and it grows over time. And our relationship with God is one of the most important ones we will have in our lifetime.
I see that relationship as a rose. At the beginning it is just a bud, waiting to open up to its full potential and beauty. As we engage in worship, prayer, and study – as we seek the Lord and draw near to Him – the bud begins to open up and display the full beauty of its divine purpose. As our relationship with Almighty God grows, we are able to display His beauty to all those around us!! Hallelujah!!
Will you join me in growing in the revelation of who God is?
Lord, may we open up fully to receive a deeper spiritual understanding of who You are. May our relationship with You, O God, bloom inwardly and outwardly to display Your glory!! In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!!
