Do you know Him?

While driving home from my long trip tonight, a song came on the radio that I hadn't heard in years. This in turn reminded me of a song that a missionary sang a few weeks ago. I believe Kristi has a video of it on her blog. The song is called "I Know Him". This song kept running through my head so much I can't even remember the 1st song that set it off.

As I thought about this coincidence I can't help but realize that the Christian is a conundrum. We are both darkness and light, sin and forgiven, flesh and spirit, dead and alive. It's a roller coaster of emotions and decisions; obstacles that must be navigated on a daily basis, constantly every minute of the day. If we did not know Him, we would indeed be lost.

But the amazing unseen hand of God that guides us through every decision, every trial, every triumph; can only be explained if you Know Him. If you Know Him like you know your wife, your husband, your father, your best friend, you will find that for that relationship to be successful and as perfect as He is, then He must know you even more.

I know I sound vague sometimes, but it's hard to explain the feeling I get when I'm just driving along, singing a song with everything inside of me (even if my voice is still limited to a half-key range due to my last cold); with tears welling up in my eyes, because I realize that nothing else matters in life hear on earth except my relationship with Him.

Do you know Him? If you don't know who Him is, or can't call Him by name, just ask Him. He will answer you. He promised.
