Your purpose and my purpose on this earth is to know GOD and to make Him known.
That’s it. That’s the total of it. And that is only the beginning.
To know Him and to make Him known. That is why we were born. To know GOD and to make Him known.
Where do we even begin to know this GOD?
Praise and Thanksgiving is a grand place to start. Starting with the things we do not understand and the things we hate. Not praising Him or thanking Him that they happened BUT that He has not forsaken us and He has not messed up. Start there.
Positive confessions are a MUST! Turn those negative thoughts and fears into out loud praise and positive confessions from GOD’s Word and we will see.
Watch Him turn your night into day in the middle of dark morning hours when all the world is asleep and you are awake in pain and gripped with fear.
Our very quest to know Him with our praise and thanksgiving and positive confessions of His Word in the midst of evil will make Him known to us AND make Him known to others through us.
The quest is on!

Ecclesiastes 12:13 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. source
At this writing I am waiting on my copy of The Quest by Beth Moore. I am thinking this study will only advance what the Holy Spirit of God has already started.
