Knowing the Lord—Psalm 107:7; John 14:9a

To know the Lord is to know His ways
To know His ways is to know His mind
To know His mind is to know His thinking

I don’t think the way you think. The way you work isn’t the way I work. For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think. Just as rain and snow descend from the skies and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth; Doing their work of making things grow and blossom, producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry. Isaiah 55:8-10 (MSG)

To know His thinking is to understand why He does what He does

So, will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.  Isaiah 55:11 (MSG)

All of these that have been written come from a devoted relationship with our Heavenly Father:

  • Here’s the one thing I crave from Yahweh, the one thing I seek above all else: I want to live with him every moment in his house, beholding the marvelous beauty of Yahweh, filled with awe, delighting in his glory and grace. I want to contemplate in his temple. Psalm 27:4 (TPT)
  • Who, then, is allowed to ascend the mountain of Yahweh? And who has the privilege of entering into God’s Holy Place? Those who are clean {cleansed by the precious blood of Jesus}—whose works and ways are pure, whose hearts are true and sealed by the truth, those who never deceive, whose words are sure. Psalm 24:3-4 (TPT)

It’s my choice to make, just as it was Mary’s, who made the choice not to be distracted by what seemed acceptable but was not the most important (Luke 10:42 (TPT), who chose not to be distracted.

We are taught that it is possible to know the mind of God (1 Cor. 2:16), but it’s your choice. SelahPastor Afolabi Oladele

    Thank you or sharing sir.

    Interesting how the writer of Psalms 27 choose to seek after just one thing and the writer of Philippians 3 also chose just one thing for emphasis.

    Atimes it’s appropriate to stick to one thing regardless of the enormity of the distractions.

    That I may always walk with him
