Biblical Poetry
Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This poem describes how in knowing God we come into more of an intimacy with Him that causes us to be all that we can be in Christ.

Knowing God
By Ken L Birks

 

You are intimately acquainted with all my ways, forevermore.
You know my thoughts, my dreams, my fears, my sins, and more.
Where can I go? Nothing is hidden from You, yet You still love me.
Your thoughts towards me are more than can be numbered.
My thoughts must be brought into your captivity, unencumbered.

Oh, that I would know You as You have known me, even in my sin.
Your greatness is beyond discovery. Where do I begin?
In Your Word and creation are hidden keys that reveal who You are.
I will search for you as hidden treasure with persistence.
Intimacy is discovered when I seek You with all of my heart without resistance.

As I seek, misconceptions of who You are disappear.
Your Holy Spirit teaches me as He reveals Your nature, so near.
As I meditate on Your beauty and majesty, I discover Your ascriptions.
In Your Word I meditate and search out Your divine distinctions.
With Your Word and Spirit I go forth in discovery of Your divine nature.

Your generosity fills my heart as I observe Your handiwork in all of creation.
Your beauty and magnificence that is seen everywhere uncover Your creative zeal.
Myriads of stars, streams, flowers, mountains, waterfalls and more, You reveal.
Your beauty, greatness and majesty are discovered by all who have observed.
In discovery, I know You as I open my eyes to all that You have created.

In Your omniscience, You have known me, my future and the paths I take.
You go before me as a guiding light, knowing what’s already at stake.
How can I but trust in You as I navigate through all the dangers and pitfalls.
You thoughts towards me are only of peace, to give a future filled with hope.
The more I discover, the more I gaze upon Your omniscience which calls.

You alone are incomprehensible and inexhaustible in power and deeds.
in Your omnipotence, nothing is too difficult for You as Your power exceeds.
As You perform on my behalf, You do the hard things, making my part attainable.
I do not underestimate Your power towards me in all things, assailable.
I continue to discover and know You as I remain linked to Your divine ability.

In all that you have created, Your eternal Godhead is clearly portrayed.
We are without excuse, as the sun, moon and stars are clearly displayed.
As all energy is derived from the sun, so it is with the Father who has life in Himself.
As the moon reflects the glory of the sun, so Your Son reflects Your grandeur.
As Your Spirit is everywhere, so are the stars in their splendor.
As I live and move in Your splendor, I experience Your intimacy within.

In Your immutability, You remain constant and unchanging, totally reliable.
Even though I have good and bad moments, You never change.
No matter what I may have done to offend You, I remain viable.
Your plans and counsel stand forever, unchanging in all that You do.
I walk in peace and security as I discover Your immutability.

Through Your Word and Spirit I have now discovered Your beauty and glory.
Your greatness and magnificence fills my heart with understanding, I embrace.
Your power and omniscience gives me strength as I move forward in grace.
Your generosity gives me faith to believe all things are possible in productivity.
All of my misconceptions have disappeared as I know You as You are.
With Your wonderful thoughts of me, I have been brought into Your captivity.
