TEXT: ‘Daniel 11:32’. (Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits).
God does not have problem in knowing you because: He is your creator. You are not a product of evolution from the amoeba or apes.
‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I sanctified you I ordained you a prophet to the nations.’ (Jeremiah 1:5, Isaiah 49:1, 5)
He is your source and sustainer, your life begins with Him and will end with Him. ‘Psalms 95:6-7’
Why do you have to know God?

1- He is your creator. Genesis 1:26
2- Your life depends on Him, in Him only you can have fullness of life. ‘John 10:10, Jn. 15:5-7’
3- He loves and cares for you; He is very mindful of you. ‘Psalms 8:4-6’. He visits you daily, crowns you with glory and honour, and gives you dominion over the works of his hands. He gave His son Jesus Christ up for your sins and my sins. He destroyed all the works of the devil on your behalf. ‘John 3:16, I John 1:7, I John 3:8.
4- He wants you to daily walk with Him so that you can understand Him and speak for Him. (Amos 3:7-8). He brings you to a place where you can exercise divine authority.
5- You bring Him delight when you understand and Know Him. Jeremiah 9:23-24.

How can I know Him?

1) Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. ‘Exodus 33:13, Psalms 103:7, Deuteronomy 29:29, Jeremiah 33:3’
2) Seek and call upon the Lord. ‘Isaiah 55:6-7, Mathew 6:33.’
3) Respond to His call for a deeper knowledge of Him/fellowship. ‘Isaiah 1:18-20, Isaiah 55:1-3, Acts 9:3-6.’
4) Read, study and meditate on the Word. John 1:1-2, 14. Your knowledge of Gods word and allowing the Word to become flesh in you brings you to the class of God; exercise of divine authority and power. ‘John 6:63’

Benefits of knowing God.

1. To know God is life eternal, you have everlasting life (John 17:3). If you want to make it to heaven, you must seek to know and do the will of God while on earth.
2. Knowing Him guarantees your freedom from sin and consequences of sin. ‘John 8:32’
3. It is compulsory to know Him if you want to be strong and do exploit. ‘Daniel 11:32’ to have strength or impregnable force to do notable achievement, perform great feat of deed. To be immune to attack and become incapable of being tampered with. Those who do not know God will be weak and shall live useless lives.
4. Those who do not know Him are destroyed, rejected by God, and their children will be forgotten by God. ‘Hosea 4:6.’
5. The knowledge of God is a vital key to operate or exercise God’s kind of faith and do God’s kind of work. ‘John 6:28-29, John 5:17; John 14:12.’
6. The undeserved blessings and peace is multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of our Lord Jesus Christ, everything that pertains to life and godliness can easily be accessed. (2 Peter 1:2-4).


It is a matter of life and death for everyone of us to know Him if we want to remain His favourites, have eternal life, be freed, be strong, do exploits. Refuse to be destroyed and be rejected by God. We owe it a duty to know HIM.
(Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come in to him and dine with him and him with ME. Revelation 3:20)
God bless you,
