Cry After Knowledge

In considering world religion, noting the vast variety of beliefs and observing the profound differences between them, we can be confident that either [1] there is no God, so it’s all made up, or [2] very few people have it right, knowing God as He ought to be known.

God says it’s the latter, that no one seeks Him out on their own initiative (Ro 3:11), which makes knowing God exceedingly precious (Je 9:24) and rare. (Ec 7:28)

Yet God assures us that those who seek Him diligently will find Him. (He 11:6) If we cry after knowledge, seeking it like treasure, we’ll understand what it means to fear Him, and come to know Him. (Pr 2:3-5)

In other words, knowing the God of Creation must be supremely important to us, the most important thing in our lives (Php 3:8), or we may miss Him entirely, living apart from Him, alienated from Him in our ignorance. (Ep 4:17-18) God isn’t one to be trifled with; this is an all-or-nothing space. If He isn’t everything to us, we don’t yet know Him.

One thought on “Cry After Knowledge”

  1. The questions we ask reveal our hearts. Are we asking, “What scientific fact proves there’s a god?” Or are we asking, “Is there any evidence suggesting that there might be a god?”

    As we seek, we tend to find. Not that all things are true, but we tend to stop seeking when we think we’ve found what we want to find. If we hate the idea of God, then we’ve closed our minds to the evidence and we’ll never see. You can’t prove that light exists to a man that won’t open his eyes.

    But if we are hoping there is a God, and we keep our eyes open looking for evidence, wanting to align with Him and honor Him if He exists, then we’ll definitely find Him.
