In our effort to come to know God, we are to remember that He first knows us. Here is what Scripture says:
Psalm 139:1-3 – O Lord, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Matthew 10:30 – And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
1 Corinthians 8:3 – The man who loves God is known by Him.
Galatians 4:9 – But now that you know God – or rather are known by God – how is it that you are turning back to those weak and miserable principles? Do you wish to be enslaved by them all over again?
Jeremiah 1:5 – Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
John 10:14 – I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me –
1 Corinthians 13:12 – Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
…….and the list goes on………..
