What We Know

Re:Verse passage – Job 32:1-10; 33:2-4, 22-30; 35:9-10; 37:14-24 (day five) “Behold, God does all these oftentimes with men, To bring back his soul from the pit, That he may be enlightened with the light of life.”

“Don’t let what you don’t know, keep you from believing, saying, and doing what you do know.”  These were the words of a wise professor at Howard Payne to his ministry students. One of the points he made with this quote is that there most always will be things that we don’t know or cannot understand about the Lord. The other important point, is that there are things we do know and understand about the Lord. So, today will you make a list (verbally, mentally, physically) of the things you do know about the Lord?  His love. His mercy. His strength. His forgiveness. His faithfulness.  This list will turn into praise. This list will serve as a reminder of the greatness (both known and unknown) of God. This list could cause a reverent hunger and thirst to know God better and at a deeper level (discipleship). This list will give voice to confession of sin and communication of truth (repentance and witnessing).

God has already made enough of Himself known to save us, for us to grow, and for us share the gospel with others (creation, scriptures, changed lives).

  1. Thanks for sharing these wise words from your college professor, Scott! We should all be sharing what God has already revealed to us about Himself…even as we learn more about Him every day.

  2. What a profound directive; making a list of what we know about God!
    As I did this, I recalled so many times through the years, either during or after the situation, I recognized that God was in control and wondered why I ever doubted.
    What a wonderful way to exalt our Creator and Lord; because as you stated this list will lead you to praise. Now, more than ever, in this day and age, we need to work on our discipleship, and witnessing in this lost world.
