Knowing God Profits: By Esther Agbi
Because he has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he has known my name. Psalm 91:14 [KJV]
The more time you spend with someone, the better assessment one has about that person. First impression is not always the right one. Most people try hard to give a good and lasting impression the first time because human beings are not usually very patient to study one before they criticize. You could imagine someone going for a job interview, getting well dressed and just a few feet away from the venue, he is splashed with muddy water. Time is of essence. If he decides to go home and change his clothing, he might be late. On the other hand, if he decides to appear before the panel, looking untidy as a result of the incident, he will not give a good impression. He may not be an untidy person, but an unfortunate situation has made him to present himself in that manner.
God does not judge us with our first encounter with him. He gives us time over and over again. He is slow to chide, the bible says. Believers and non-believers should spend more time with God. The more we get to know him, the easier we fall in love with him. The more we love him, the easier for God to deliver us because he will guide our steps along the right path. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but he has promised to deliver us from them all. He has also promised to set us on high. That is our rightful position. The Lord will set you on high even as you draw closer and closer to him In Jesus name.
