KNOW GOD & BELIEVE HIM

by Janell Price  
7/01/2007 / Devotionals


You are my witnesses," says the Lord.
And you are my servant. You have been chosen to know me,
believe in me, and understand that I alone am God.
Isaiah 43:10 NLT

It is a wonderful fact that God has chosen us to know Him, to believe in Him and to understand that He alone is God. The Hebrew word for know often refers to the relationship between husband and wife. This means we are to have a reverent intimacy and familiarity with Him.

COME TO HIM

In Jhn 6:37 Jesus says, "All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away." So, we come to Him, believing He is who He says He is. "Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One? "I am," said Jesus. "And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven." (Mrk 14:61-2 NIV)

BELIEVE HIM

I love the clarity found in the New Living Translation. But the NIV phrases Isiah 43:10 differently. Instead of saying that we are to know Him and believe IN Him, it says we are to know Him and believe Him: "You are my witnesses ... so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he."

ACCEPT WHAT HE SAYS

The more I think about that, the more I see the difference in believing in Him and believing Him. To believe in Him has to do with who He is. To believe Him is to accept everything He says as truth. While I purpose to practice both statements, I find it more of a challenge to believe everything He says than I do to believe in Him. How about you?
