Knowing God

There’s so much I know
In my knower I mean
How my Mississippi sisters taught me
There’s a distinct sense
Taking residence in my soul
Occupying open space
Where expectancy lives
A place of welcome for all He freely gives
Not because Julie has done anything award-winning
Rather in her heart
She seeks a genuine peek
No … more than that …
A reaching of her hand to His
And listening
Sometimes in the private sanctuary
He holds her close
And she knows nothing can get her in that moment
Other times He shows her pictures
Ones she sees clearly by faith
Then she knows He bestowed the Way


Am I supposed to say His death and resurrection is a mystery?
Am I supposed to roll in wonder?
When my knower knows without a doubt
He not only died for me but He died for all,
No sin or misgiving can stop His saving
And that the power of God raises dead to life for those caught in everyday strife


To me, such awe and mystery
Is in His sovereignty
The God we can’t see
Tiny divine
Then gently unveils
The enormous gift
Of acknowledgement
That we are known
By the Most Powerful holy God
We are made, cared for, His life laid down for, … is so far beyond
How we imagine our worth


Yet evidence is everywhere
Jesus lives in every molecule of air
I believe each of us receive
Different confirmations and revelations
You may know in your knower what I cannot fathom
Or I may see clearly where there is fog in your relationship with God


Of one mind, of one spirit means we bow to and praise the same Father in Heaven.
It means we speak truth to each other lovingly.
It means we clasp hands to pray
In circles, at work, in the midst of play.
It means we shine as brightly as we can
In our time left before the return of the Son of Man


What do you know in your knower?
What treasure is supernaturally sown
In the deepest center of your soul?


My son (and daughter), if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,

turning you ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding-

indeed, if you call out for insight

and cry aloud for understanding,

and if you look for it as for silver

and search for it as hidden treasure,

then you will find the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God (Proverbs 2:1-5).

  1. Evidence of Christ is everywhere. It’s true. I thank God for allowing me to connect here with you and other Christians so we can share the ways God has revealed Himself to each of us, spurring one another on in our most holy faith. Let’s help each other shine! Bless you!

    1. Amen, helping you and others shine is our way of glorifying Him. The verse that talks about honoring others above yourself, and of course ALL honor and glory to Jesus. Thank you sister for walking His truth out.
