“Then he said: ‘The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from his mouth.'” Acts 22:14
Saul had an encounter with Jesus. He was told by Jesus to see Ananias to find out what was next. Ananias told him that God had chosen him to know His will, see Jesus, and hear the words from God directly. Later Saul becomes Paul, who wrote half of the New Testament books.
People like to have knowledge. They want to know what is going on and the purpose behind it. They want to know how to repair things. They want to know what is going to happen in the days to come.
There are many different reasons for wanting to know something. Power, greed, safety, protection, or pride cause people to want to know something.
God wants people to know what He knows. God is there to share information with people. He has all the knowledge that there ever was or ever can be.
Some people believe that God is out there in some mystic unknown and cannot be known, yet, God wants to be known by every person. Jesus stepped out of heaven and eternity in order to live on this earth and make it possible for every person to be able to step into heaven and eternity.
Every believer has been chosen by God to know Him, Jesus and His words. In fact, God has chosen every person to know Jesus, yet, not every person will choose to know Jesus. Others will not be given the opportunity to know Jesus.
There may be times when you feel like God has left you, but God is still there. He chose you to know Him in a personal way. He wants you to know and understand what He has for you, both in this life and in eternity in heaven.
For you to know what God has for you, all you have to do is be willing to read the Bible, pray and listen. God will tell you what is going on and what He wants you to do.
The most important thing for you to do is build your relationship with God more and more each day.
The second most important thing for you to do is be a witness of who Jesus is.
You are chosen to know.
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will know God’ purpose for your life; that you will know God in a personal way; and that you will know God’s word more.
