According to God’s word there is nothing more rewarding or more satisfying than using your mind to focus on your Creator. The Psalmist declares, “Blessed are they who seek him with all of their heart” (Ps.119:2). Jesus affirmed that the greatest directive from the Old Testament was a supreme love for God that included “all of your mind” (Mt.22:37). When you take time to ponder the Triune God or when you seek to deepen your knowledge of the Almighty, you are engaging in the primary goal of your existence.
The Bible tells us that everything about your lot in life is strategically designed to get you to do more of just that! Acts 17 states that the time of your birth and the exact place in which you live are both sovereignly aimed at getting you to “seek God and reach out for him” (vv.26-27). And that is not just a “pre-Christian” concern.
There is so much more for us all to know about our transcendent God! Paul’s prayer for the Philippians was that these growing Christians would “abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight” about their God. So today be sure to engage your mental faculties in the ever-deepening quest of knowing more about your God.
