Relational Engagement with God
by Harvey L. Diamond
People often wonder if God is real; and if so, how to really know God and relate to God—not a religion, but God Almighty—El Shaddai—the living God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—God who expresses Himself as triune Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The question is; what are you looking for in God? What do you need or want from God? Who do you desire God to be?
He introduced Himself to Moses as “I AM WHO I AM” or simply, “I AM.” What a name! He came as Messiah to the Jewish people as Yeshua, meaning in Hebrew, salvation; or as commonly known in the Greek, Jesus. So He became Lord and Savior to all humanity who will believe and place trusting faith in Him.
So, what is IN THE NAME? He in fact has many names. The Lord personally used seven names to describe who He is, and who He will be to those who believe:
I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE
I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
I AM THE DOOR OF THE SHEEP
I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD
I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE
I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE
I AM THE TRUE VINE
How to appreciate ALL HE IS? Get to know Him. One way God did prescribe as a way to relate and interact with Him was through the Appointed Times of the Lord. They, in effect, serve as a blueprint of the way God planned to relate and engage with His people on a continuous basis.
In fact, we’ve created an easy way to learn to relate with God through our PATHWAYS TO GLORY Relational Devotional. Check it out. Through this devotional, you will find a balanced approach to engaging and relating with our relational God and nurturing trusting faith in a way He designed. The Lord bless you along the journey!
