The Search Builds Relationship

The Search Builds Relationship 

God often communicates with man in symbols and parallels. As Jesus spoke in parables, on one level, the natural mind could simply remember an interesting story; but the spirit of man could discern real-life truths within the story and act on them. Being stirred in spirit enough to search out and lay hold of the truth builds relationship with Truth, just as His disciples built relationshipmoonlight with Him as they sought Him out wanting to understand the truth. God still speaks through symbols and parallels whether in dreams or visions or parables, to lead to understanding – the intimate understanding and conversation of friends. Godly dreams display strategies, confirm plans and direction, and reveal overcoming truths. As we realize this, we realize how intricate and awesome our God is, and our understanding and love for Him grow in the search.

“It is the glory of God to conceal and keep close a word, a matter, advice, counsel, a thought; but it is the honor, glory, abundant riches, and splendor of kings to search out his word, his counsel and his thoughts,” (Prov 25:2-paraphrase).
