Knowledge of or about?

In my zeal to be a spiritual person, I dove headlong into the religions world. Going to all the studies, enrolling in and completing religions college. I became a member of an organized fellowship, and was installed as deacon, then asked to start services and lead worship. So busy I didn’t have time for even my family. I received my ministers license, and away I go. Well that’s not all countless hours of prayer, study, and preparation for services, well I was busy. To say the least, almost always interrupted with a counseling session or a visit to someone who was in need. I said all that to say this. It wasn’t my grasp of the written word, or the doctrine of the organization that caused me to understand.

It wasn’t until I put away all inputs into my life, that I became aware that what I have sought for all my life was already right there in front of me. I didn’t need words to confirm what was going on. I didn’t need to confer with fellow believers. I needed only to remember who it was that was guiding me all the time. His nature was the guide, if I listened I could hear the small voice gently telling me everything I needed to know. Only then did I know, none of the B.S. the religion offered was the way. Oh they were close, but I need dead on, not close. Now when I need to make a decision I just listen. Gods nature will define everything for me. It is who God is that is are guide post. That is why it is so important to know God, and the more I know him the more I want to know him. All my security is in God, I don’t have to conform to a standard, I just have to grow in God. I can know the written word inside out and still not know anything about the person of God. Its a case for who you know, not what you know.
