High Notions of God

…We should feed and nourish our souls with high notions of God; which would yield us great joy in being devoted to Him.” – Brother Lawrence

It is my firm belief that the higher our view of God, the greater our reverence for Him. As we learn about Him and get to know Him, we can’t help but adore Him. We should meditate on Him and praise His greatness. Great thoughts of God will yield us great joy because we will begin to see God as He is. We will come to know that He is love. We will see that He is so far beyond us that we could never fully comprehend Him. Part of having a relationship with someone is getting to know that person. It takes time to get to know God. By His grace, He bestows on each of His elect a revelation of Himself. Jesus enjoys sharing who He is with us. Also, we will find great joy in getting to know Him. We should continually ask God for greater and greater revelations of our great Lord, Jesus Christ. Why wouldn’t we want to get to know the One we love above all else?
