God's Relationship with Us
In the Bible, God spoke and interacted directly with a handful of His followers. Today every believer has the Bible and the Holy Spirit.
Day One: Knowing God
Within all of us there exists a strong desire to be known and to know others. More importantly, all people desire to know their Creator, even if they are not professed believers in God...

Day Two: In God's Presence
Adam and Eve had intimate fellowship in the presence of God before the fall. Since that time, sin has prevented our ability to be in the physical presence of God (Exodus 33:20). Now only the holy, sinless angels are in the physical presence of God...

Day Three: Finding God
To "find God" can mean different things to different people. For some, the phrase "find God" is synonymous with "getting religion," whatever religion that may be. For others, "find God" means to "clean up one's life," usually with the help of a higher power...

Day Four: Hearing God
The Bible records God speaking audibly to people many times. There is no biblical reason why God could not speak to a person audibly today...

Day Five: Seeing God
The Bible tells us that no one has ever seen God except the Lord Jesus Christ. In Exodus 33:20, God declares, "You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live." These Scriptures seem to contradict other Scriptures which describe various people "seeing" God...

Day Six: Mysterious Ways
God works in ways that are often deemed "mysterious"—that is to say, God's methods often leave people totally bewildered. Why would God tell Joshua and the children of Israel to march around the city of Jericho for a week?...

Day Seven: God is Here
The Bible records God's appearing to people, performing amazing and undeniable miracles, speaking audibly, and many other things that we do not often witness today. Why is this?...
