Open Heavens Daily Devotional 17 October 2022 Message
You can never know God enough. Paul said:
That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; – (Philippians 3:10)
That is Paul – the great Apostle who God revealed so much of Himself to and this is evident in his writings which make up a significant part of the New Testament. Despite this, Apostle Paul still said he wished to know God more. You can never know enough of God because (1 Corinthians 13:9) says that we only know in part. Anyone who says he or she already knows all there is to know about God is a liar. Every believer must strive always to know more and more of God; it should be our daily yearning.
There are many benefits to knowing God. Firstly, it is only those who know God that can do exploits. The latter part of Daniel 11:32 says:
…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
The more of God you know, the more the exploits you can do and vice versa. Seek to know Him more so that you can do more and more exploits.
Secondly, eternal life is in knowing God.
In John 17:3, Jesus defined eternal life as being about knowing God and His Son Jesus Christ.
If you know God, then you will begin to enjoy God’s Kingdom right from here. When a believer goes to be with the Lord, it is wrong to say that they have died because they crossed from death to life long ago. They are only sleeping (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14).
If you want to know God, you will spend time studying His word daily and you will gladly attend Bible Study. You will also pray very often.
When I just became born again, I was always the first to arrive at Bible Study meetings because I just wanted to know more about God daily. Up until now. I ensure that I pay attention and take notes anytime someone is talking about Jesus Christ. I just want to know Him more and more. What about you?
Heavenly Father, please reveal more of Yourself to me. I want to know You more.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
