820 How to Seek to Know God
1 If you want to know God and truly get to know and understand Him, then don’t just be restricted to the three stages of God’s work, and don’t just be restricted to the stories of the work God had once performed. If you try to know Him that way, then you are confining God to a certain limit. You’re seeing God as too insignificant. Such consequences will be that you would never be able to know God’s wondrousness and supremacy, and you would never be able to know God’s power and omnipotence and the scope of His authority. Such an understanding would impact your ability to accept the truth that God is the Ruler of all things, as well as your knowledge of God’s true identity and status.
2 If your understanding of God is limited in scope, what you can receive is also limited. That is why you must expand the scope and open your horizons. Whether it is the scope of God’s work, God’s management, and God’s rule, or all things ruled over and managed by God, you should get to know it all and get to know God’s actions therein. Through such a way of understanding, you will unconsciously feel that God is ruling over, managing and supplying all things among them. At the same time, you will also truly feel that you are a part of all things and a member of all things. As God supplies all things, you also accept God’s rule and supply. This is a fact no one can deny.
