When believer keep experiencing the work of the Spirit and word in their lives, their inner eyes will automatically open. Purification is happening in their lives and they begin to see God!
Matthew 5:8 (NKJV) Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
‘Seeing God’ is one of the most important aspects in our effort to grow up in the true knowledge of God.
Every believer who “see God”, will surely experience breakthrough and change in life because they experience divine work that make them to be more like the existence of God who reveals Himself to them.
1 John 3:2 (NKJV) Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
For believer who keep growing up in the knowledge of God, will enjoy several things:
1. The dimension of love, hope and love will be stronger and firm
Every believer who keep experiencing the work of the word and Spirit in their lives, so they begin to ‘see God’, will surely find the dimension of faith, hope and love become extremely bigger than before!
a. When Holy Spirit brings someone to ‘see God’, he is increasingly convinced of God’s existence– the conviction (faith) he has, he puts it based on God’s existence who is always able and faithful to His promise and word. When the faith of a believer becomes unsteady, it often happens because he still relies on his own faith or conviction. But when he lays their conviction on God’s existence, there is no way he becomes unsteady or weak!
b. Through God’s existence that Spirit reveals, every believer will have dimension of undying hope! With the dimension of hope keep burning in someone’s life, he will have fighting spirit and persistence in striving something – especially if he realizes that what he is striving for is aligned with God’s will! He will never become slack or give up into circumstances; he will keep pushing in His presence until all promises of God are fully fulfilled!
c. Having the knowledge of God is the manifestation of the work of Spirit in our everyday lives. This makes us to have an ability to apply what we spiritually know (about God’s existence) become a real action so automatically our daily lives will be different compared to most other’s lives. There is ‘a divine virtue’ which comes into our lives and gives us an ‘inner encouragement’ that makes us to do what is right without being forced or scared.
2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV) For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
There is a spiritual dimension which comes and works – giving an encouragement in our hearts to start doing the right things! #ILoveGod
This message will still continue tomorrow.
