God knows we have difficulty knowing Him fully in our soul and body. It’s been a long time—ages in fact—since we communed with Him in our true state of spirit being. His ways are not our ways; He does things altogether differently than we do. To try to figure out on our own and from our own strength how to know God will leave us frustrated and confused. So He has taken the responsibility to teach and guide us into all Truth, into His ways. We can relax as we come into His presence, knowing that since He loves us, and knowing Him is something He wants for us, He can be trusted to do what is necessary to bring us into the relationship He wants. He knows how wounded, easily distracted, narrow-minded each of us is, and brushes that aside, speaking instead to our hearing inner spirit being.
