I want to start off this message with a simple question.
Who is God for you? (not TO you, FOR you)
How you answer this question is the single most important thing in the world.
Your perception and view of God will drive everything in your life. The reason this is true is because the way we live is profoundly shaped by our perception of God in more ways than we realize.
For example –
One of the common thoughts among many, because of a struggle of sin, is this – am I a sinner who struggles to love God or are am I a believer who struggles to overcome sin?
Knowing the answer to a question like this will radically shape how you approach God and how you approach your relationship with Him. Will you strive to earn something with god or embrace your sonship in God.
The more off line our perception of God is, the more religious and legalistic we will become, and the more we miss out on what He is really like.
But The truth of who God really is and what He is really like, will set us free to have incredible experiences of Him.
Your PURSUIT level toward God whether strong or weak, whether thriving or non existent, whether on fire or white knuckling it begins with your PERCEPTION of God.
Because your PERCEPTIONS determine your expectations.
I have been exploring what God is really like for 20 years now, and it has continued to radically shaped how I personally live my life.
I believe this with all my heart – Embrace Who He is and the trajectory of your life will be changed forever.
Knowing God is the pinnacle of life –
Dan. 11.32b (NKJV) but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.
