How is THAT possible?

But without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He IS, and that He IS a rewarded of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

Moses ask of Godin Exodus 3, "What shall I say to them?" and God replied, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"

This is so profound both for the Israelites and for us today! The writer of Hebrews tells us that we first must BELIEVE that God IS . . . We must KNOW without a doubt that He is Who He says He is! Even Moses knew this. "Who is sending me? How will they KNOW?" The Jews knew by His faithfulness. They knew by His character. They knew by experience.

How do we KNOW today? Do we DILIGENTLY seek after God? Do we have EXPERIENCE with Him? We tend to trust the people and things with which we are most involved. To know someone is to spend time with them. 

How well do we know the Lord?
