No, I am not talking about that: if that is the case then everybody could say that they know the Father. All they had to do was read the Bible through and through to come up with his profile, but they still wouldn’t just know the Father. Shuck, I know all about my favorite basketball player of all times, but I don’t just really know him at all. So say I just called him up, and was lucky enough to even get close to getting through to his voice mail, what kind of message would I leave that would cause him to return my call. Now that would be knowing, to have the greatest player of all time, to return your call. Once he did it the first time, what would it require of me for him to do it the next time? And taking it to the next level, what would make him say, take this private number so next time you can get right through: OK, enough of day dream wishing.
Speaking of day dreams and wishing, when you say you know the Father, are you saying it because you and Father got it like that, or because you are hoping and wishing that it be his will to know you on the matter at hand? Remember that Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence not yet seen; therefore, as I hear it said so often, is Father coming to your rescue because you hope in faith for it to be so, or is he coming to your rescue because you know him that way to be so? You know, I’m just thinking out loud as I so often do. You know Jesus really wasn’t hoping the Father would raise him from the dead, he knew it to be a fact because it was spoken. Did you know that the hope sheds into fact making substance once the word is come? You have to shed from hoping into knowing in order to process the thing into existence. If you are still in hope when you should have made the shed to knowing, you will leave your thing in your hope. Hope remains the unseen evidence, while faith is the evidence of substance: once you start seeing the substance of the thing hoped for, your production line sheds on while your hope line sheds off. You can’t have knowing it if you are still having hoping it going on. Your knowing begins when you first hear that the substance for your thing hoped for has come: then you will hear more substance keep coming until your knowing finishes it up.
When my son ask me for something, it’s not even a thought that there may be a problem in the supply line. Now, he may wonder what mom’s major cents may have been on the matter, or if Covid19 is in play with the decision, or anything else other than he can’t have it if I have it to give. You ever wonder if you may not can get it from the Father even if He has it to give? Why wouldn’t he give it if he can: maybe it’s more complicated than just giving it. What needs to happen for me to get it when I want it? Some of my projects can not always wait for his will to always be completed first. Did he say that we can only get what we ask for only if we finished his will first? I haven’t read that one in scripture before. This is something good to go do a spiritual fact check, you know, being in the political spirit as it be. So as a man think it, so is he: what do you think about your knowing the Father? I would love to have known what Abraham thought about that before he found out how much knife lifting work he still had left to do for God to know him, and this after all he had already been through with God. You never know what Father’s knowing you work is left to be done until he makes it next.
I think that I am going to go and cash in some more of my “really know him beyond the hope coupons.” I was doing some spiritual window shopping in prayer this morning, and I saw a couple things that I need the Father to deliver today. I must go and hear for the substance to be delivered. I am sure it will becoming shortly: as a man sure it, so is he. lol. As the Apostle Paul would say, I believe I know enough to say as I sure it.
Father Sure Does Love To Do The Body Good.
