To even begin to understand life's issues and its choices and consequences, we must come to KNOW GOD ~ not become religious ~ and not ~ just be born again.

Knowledge Of The Holy One

In our Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love in the Tenth Verse of the Ninth Chapter of Proverbs {Amplified Bible} we find this: "The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning (the chief and choice part) of Wisdom, and the Knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."

Think about that. When we have no knowledge of the Holy One, we have no real understanding of what we are dealing with in life in general ~ or why we have to deal with it ~ or the appropriate response to what we are dealing with.

Our Conscious Objective

To even begin to understand life's issues and its choices and consequences, we must come to KNOW GOD ~ not become religious ~ and not ~ just be born again either.

That is certainly a great start [and thankfully it is a free gift that is offered to all ~ and must be accepted by faith ~ but ~ our conscious objective ought to be ~ to really get to KNOW HIM ~ by spending quality time with Him ~ IN PRAYER ~as well as ~ in reading and studying His Word on a consistent basis!

He is gracious to help us when we need Him ~ and truth be told ~ WE NEED HIM EVERY HOUR.

Our First Inclination

Generally speaking ~ It helps to become a part of a good Bible-Believing Church ~ where teaching ~ along with living ~ according to] the Word of God is an expressed priority.

We are just not going to be in a position ~ to reverence God ~ if we fail to get to know Him. When knowledge (with understanding) of the Word of God gets deep down into our hearts, our first inclination before ~ MAKING MAJOR DECISIONS ~ or taking actions that will impact our future ~ should be ~ to determine ~ what God says about this in His Word!

We Need Patience

Patience is required because getting to know God is going to take time ~ most likely a very long time even a lifetime. As long as we are alive ~ there is going to be more to learn.

In the WORLD'S BEST SELLING BOOK ~ our Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love {aka the Bible} in the Tenth Chapter of the New Testament Book of Hebrews, we find this absolutely astounding inspiration:

Hebrews 10:35-36
Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
