Getting to know You

Proverbs 1:7 If you really want to gain knowledge, you must begin by having respect for the Lord.

 Someone once said to me “If you want to get your life straight you need to get to know yourself.” I believe that is true, but I also believe you need to get to know God.

There is a song I learned in The Salvation Army early in recovery that shaped how I proceeded in recovery. The words say ‘To be like Jesus, this hope processes me. In every thought and deed this is my aim my creed.’

 To be like Jesus we need to understand His character. To understand His character, we need to read His Word but we also need to be in close, personal relationship with Him.

  • What do you know about Jesus?
  • How have you encountered His intervention in your life?

Prayer: God help me today to thirst to know more about Jesus and to seek personal relationship with Him.
