Showing God in action in and through His people.
Because God's Spirit resides within us, we can rely on Him as our Teacher, Counselor, and Guide into all truth. He is willing to share His great knowledge with us.
God is never surprised when we have problems, and He is always with us to help us. But believers often deprive themselves of God's solutions because they do not take time to study His Word. Or they may know the Word but not want to obey it or meet the conditions of God's promises. Thus they do not receive full benefit from God's omniscience.
God's help does not guarantee us a life free of trials and tribulations. In fact, God uses our adversity, heartache, testings, and persecutions to bless us.
Furthermore, trusting God does not eliminate temptation. But, in 1 Corinthians 10:13, Paul says that God "...will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand." When we accept the fact that the God, who knows the end from the beginning, also knows the way out, we can relax. He has the power and wisdom to make us victorious.
God knows everything about you and loves you unconditionally. I encourage you---yes, I plead with you---to open your heart to Him and determine to walk with Him regardless of the cost.
Remind yourself every day of the truth that God knows everything. You will never again feel the same way about your daily personal fellowship with Him.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Do you sometimes lack enough faith to believe that God will make clear what He wants you to do? Write down James 1:5 on a note card and keep it in your pocket. Read it every day until it is ingrained on your heart. Then see whether or not God is keeps His Word.
