A Personal God


Everyone is seeking God—some just don’t know it.

God created you (and everyone else!) with an innate desire to know Him. You were created in His image, and therefore are seeking a relationship with Him on some level. Many people understand this and earnestly seek Him. Others are searching for something and can’t quite explain who or what that is.

But on some level, everyone is seeking a relationship with God because that’s just how He made them. Unfortunately, Satan does everything he can to get in the way of you finding God. One of his favorite tactics is to convince you that God is someone other than who He really is.

The lie takes many forms, but the goal is always the same: present a false picture of who God is in an effort to convince you that God is not worth seeking. Whether it’s the distant god who doesn’t care about you or the angry god that’s only there to condemn you, Satan doesn’t want you to know the true God.

How do you get to know the real God? Spend time with Him! Enoch is a somewhat obscure character in the Bible, but listen to his story:

When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah. Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him. Genesis 5:21-24

Enoch spent 300 years walking with God, getting to know Him. What he discovered was contrary to everything Satan would tell you. He discovered a personal God, one that took an interest in his life and loved him for who he was. If you want to cut through the lies that Satan tells, the solution is return to God’s Word and spend time “walking” with Him.
