If we struggle with issues and problems, it may be because we are going through life without knowing God. A personal relationship with Him completely transforms our lives, and empowers us to do great things that we could never do on our own. Knowing God personally, instead of simply knowing about Him, multiplies His grace and peace in our lives. It strengthens our faith, brings forth the fruits of the spirit, and increases our love. In an age when most people are unsure of how they are supposed to live, a relationship with God reveals His specific will for our lives. This type of knowledge is an outflow of knowing Him. When others are wondering why they were born, spending time with God brings us clarity and purpose in this area.
