Get Better Acquainted

Today's Scripture

May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. - 2 Peter 1:2 NLT.

Thoughts for Today

Today's scripture tells us that one way to experience more of God's grace and peace is to grow in our knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.

Grow in our knowledge. Get better acquainted. So how do we do this? How do we get better acquainted with our heavenly Father and with his Son?

If we want to build a closer relationship people on this earth, how do we go about it? We spend time with them. When we are together, we don't do all the talking--we listen. If they express their desires--either by speaking or in writing--we are eager to know what they have to say. We try to do things that will please them.

And so it is with the Lord. If we want to know him better, we spend time with him in prayer. And we don't do all the talking--we listen. We eagerly read the Bible to hear his words, to understand him better. We trust him and live to please him.

Consider this …

As we approach a new year, consider making a commitment to grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. Determine to talk to him more--and to listen even more than you talk. Eagerly seek him in his Word. And trust him day by day, becoming increasingly aware of his constant presence. As you do these things, he will give you more and more grace and peace.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, I thank you for your love and grace and peace. Sometimes I get so caught up in the whirlwind of life that I don't spend time getting to know you better. In the coming months, help me to spend more time with you … to learn to listen … to learn from your Word. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
