In any relationship you have, whether it’s with a friend, a spouse, or God, understanding the nature and character of the other person is important.
Otherwise, how could you forge any kind of deep and meaningful connection? Without knowing the other person well, misinformation could undermine the relationship. The same goes for knowing God’s true nature.
Your relationship with God should be rooted in truth. You can’t trust someone you don’t know well, and you can’t have a meaningful relationship with God if you don’t truly know Him.
How well do you know God?
There are a lot of misconceptions about the Lord out there, but God is inviting you to discover the truth about who He really is. He wants you to develop a relationship with Him!
Let’s start with this verse:
As demonstrated in this scripture, the best way to understand God’s true nature is through His Word—the Bible! God’s heart and intentions are revealed all throughout Scripture, and reading it will help you gain a clearer understanding of who God really is. Wouldn’t you like to be rock solid in your relationship with God? You can be. It’s great to pray and talk to God, but it’s essential that you also engage with His Word. There is absolutely no way that you can grasp who God really is without embracing Scripture.
What popular misconceptions are you believing about God?
Throughout history, religious institutions have often painted a distorted picture of God that leads many people astray. Sadly, those misrepresentations have created a lot of confusion about God’s true nature.
To break free from religious misconceptions, you need to seek the truth in God’s Word for yourself.
The Bible itself declares that God’s Word is truth, and knowing it frees us from deception.
One common misunderstanding propagated by some religious teachings concerns the sovereignty of God. God’s authority and supremacy are absolute. However, it is crucial to recognize that God granted people free will and control over certain aspects of life. This is evident from the Scriptures, such as when God gave mankind dominion over the earth (Gen. 1:26).
If you don’t understand that you have been given authority, you will let the devil eat your lunch and pop the bag! God isn’t bringing evil into your life; Jesus came to give you power over the enemy (Luke 10:19). You need to recognize the goodness of your Father before you can further your journey with Him.
It is important to note that tragedies and difficult circumstances are not necessarily the result of God’s will, as many have been led to believe. The Bible tells us we have an adversary (the devil) roaming around like a lion, seeking whom he may devour (1 Pet. 5:8).
There are countless popular misconceptions about God that you may be believing even now! Sadly, they are hindering you from blossoming into the victorious life you were created to experience.
Having a correct understanding of God as the loving and compassionate Father that He is allows us to trust Him in challenging times rather than blame Him for our hardships.
I challenge you to seek God through His Word and encounter His mercy and goodness. Throughout its pages, the Bible will reveal the true nature of God to you. Release your erroneous thinking and allow God to minister truth to you!
Be encouraged by this scripture:
This is just one verse among countless others that demonstrates who God really is. Isn’t that powerful? God is not ready to smite you in judgment; He is overflowing with mercy and stretching out His forgiving hand toward you! Wrong teachings from your past may have caused you to mistakenly paint a false picture of God in your mind, but the truth is waiting to be unleashed into your life!
I hope you can see how vital it is to avoid creating your own version of who God is based on personal preferences or what religion has taught you. Instead, by reading the Bible, you can discover the true nature of God and develop a genuine relationship with Him that’s based on truth, just as you would any other close friend. Because He’s the greatest friend you’ll ever have.
You don’t have to settle for knowing about God. It is possible to know who God really is!
