SCRIPTURES: Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth…; Job 22:21 Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee. Jeremiah 9:23-24 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
THOUGHT: God, in His Word, invites you to become acquainted with Him in your youth, or as early as possible, so that with God in your heart and mind, you can make wise decisions during the rest of your life. Once you learn more and more about Him, you will see that no matter what you accomplish, that you have nothing to brag about. This is because all that you have, even down to your next breath, is given by God Himself, who is the Creator and the originator of all things. Although you cannot know Him fully, you can grow in your understanding and He invites you to seek to know Him better in your journey here on earth (Jeremiah 9:24). You will find that the God of Creation is the God who is Infinite, Self-Existing, All-Wise and All-Powerful and yet He is One who is Kind, Compassionate, Loving, Forgiving and Merciful. Take Him up on His invitation to acquaint yourself with Him by joining in this daily walk of coming to know His Nature, Character and Attributes.
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I ask that You breathe revelation, wisdom and understanding into me as I take Your invitation to acquaint myself with You. Lord, I put aside preconceived notions and theories of man and take up what You reveal in the Scriptures about Your Nature, Your Characteristics and Your Attributes. Since spiritual things are spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14) I ask You for spiritual wisdom from above (James 1:5-7; James 3:17), and spiritual discernment to receive the revelation of Your True Personality and Nature. Help me to grow to know You more and more each day as I learn the truth of who You are. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!
