I Have Tried To Know God, But I Just Don’t Get It!



Basic Principles In Your Search Of How To Know God

How to know God? It would be wrong to say there is a cookie-cutter formula for knowing God. I say that because each one of our lives is different, with different circumstances, different people, all with different personalities. There are some common denominators that most all Christians experience in various degrees. Do not worry because God wants to be known and is not hiding from you. He wants you to know Him. What I can do to help is point you to finding God through this website. Below are some simple principles you can follow in your journey to understand God.




How To Know God Is The Good News?



Reading the Bible Is A Relationship With God!


Here is an example of how reading the Bible can provide such answers. What is God’s will for your life? Read Romans 12:1-2. “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is his good, pleasing and perfect will.” God’s general will for your life is that you would offer yourself to Him, not conform to the pattern of this world, and be transformed. Why would you expect him to reveal anything more specific until you start doing that? Prepare yourself to be used by God first, and then He will provide a way to use you for His purpose and His glory.

Reading The Bible Daily Is Preparing Yourself To Be Used By God.

It’s the beginning of a life-long relationship with God. Another great reason to read and understand the Bible is that Jesus Christ modeled such understanding for us. Jesus often said, “It is written…” because he knew the scriptures. And so, we should know the scriptures too. Knowing scripture can also help us defend ourselves from being deceived by Satan.

How Can I Inherit Eternal Life?

(Read Matthew 4:4-10,  Mark 7:6, Read Luke 10:25-28)
“On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this, and you will live.”
Notice that Jesus Christ says, “do this.” It’s not enough to merely read God’s word. It’s not even enough to understand it. We must also live it. But we can’t live with what we don’t know or don’t understand. So, an essential, lifelong spiritual discipline is reading and studying the Bible for understanding. Then, seek to DO or apply what you are learning.

So, Your Job And Privilege To Read The Bible Every Day.

No matter how busy you get, read at least some of the Bible each day…even if that means you only read two verses. If you are already following a reading plan, keep going. If you and your mentor agree on a different chapter to read, then do that.
Otherwise, read James 1 and James 2 this week. Both chapters are concise and doable. Don’t feel like you have to read both sections in one sitting. Just make sure you are reading God’s word each day. If you finish skimming these chapters, go back and re-read them. Continue reading and re-reading these chapters this week.

Remember, The Bible Is Unlike Any Other Book.

It’s not a book you just read, put down, and then move on to another book. It’s not a book you ever “finish” reading. So, please don’t feel pressured to finish reading it. Just CONTINUE to read it.
Read the chapters above and keep reading them several times. As you read, think about how you are DOING what it says. Ask yourself, “how do I need to LIVE these verses?”
  1. What did you learn about God or yourself.
  2. How you can apply the verses to your life.



Fundamental Way On How To Know God?

  1. Start by praying to gain wisdom and knowledge about God and His word. If you are new to prayer, consider it talking to God as if you were talking to a friend.
  2. Humbly ask God to reveal Himself to you through prayer, reading the Bible, and fellowship with others.
  3. Get a Bible and start by reading Proverbs or 1 John 1-5. (think of questions while you are reading)
  4. Visit, ask questions, and get Biblical answers based on scriptures.
  5. If you know a Christian, ask them if you could sit down and talk to them about their faith, ask questions and start to get the answers you need.
  6. Do not restrict your questions. God tells us to come to Him like little children.
  7. You could also talk with a pastor to collect more information on your quest to find God. These things can be done in person, on the phone, email.
  8. God doesn’t want us to merely find facts about Him; He wants us to find Him with our whole being. He wants you to know Him personally and have a relationship with him, which involves intellect and heart.
  9. At some point, develop your testimony and share it with others you know and even strangers.
  10. Make a list of qualities of God and your Christian faith that you are learning about. Starting a journal is also a great idea.

10 More Good Ideas To Keep In Mind While Searching For God!

  1. Do not lose heart if your search to know God does not go as quickly as possible. Be patient, and God will show Himself to you day by day and week by week.
  2. Keep praying each morning when you wake up and throughout the day.
  3. It is wise to hold loosely to your preconceived notions about God and the Bible until you learn firsthand which God is from the Bible itself.
  4. Take time to go on YouTube to investigate more by searching for things you want to know in the search bar.
  5. I would suggest reading other Christian books that help you understand the Bible better, but be careful not to allow them to replace your reading of the Bible.
  6. Visit and do word searches on things you want to learn more about.
  7. Ask others how they discovered Jesus Christ and what helped them develop a relationship with Christ?
  8. Ask others to share their testimony on how they found Jesus in their lives?
  9. Become more aware of God and His creation, keeping in mind that God created the heavens, earth, and everything and everybody in it.

Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened” Matthew 7:7
