Here we will look at the surety of God and to better understand where we get our knowledge that we have received. The knowledge can be express through our senses or through the logical knowledge that is in us automatically, according to rationalism. Whether through the Word of God, proven solutions or through our senses like personal experience that had been given unto us about whom God is and the purpose He has for us. What does Rationalism and Empiricism express about the knowledge we get and where does it come from? To me I have come to understand that the knowledge that we receive comes from both empiricism and rationalism. We learn from our senses and rational equations that give us some understanding of the product and lesson being taught. Let me start by stating that God is real to me and I know it without a shadow of doubt. I have learned through the Holy Bible who is my Father in Heaven and who He is to me. He is a God that cares and wants the best for me. He is a God that loves me, shelters me, provides for me and wants nothing more but to give us an abundant life. God is the Creator of heaven and earth and without Him nothing will exist, that’s including you and me. He had spoken the word and we came to be. It seems to me that people take the word of God lightly and doesn’t realize how powerful God’s word can be. It can transform and change lives, if we just believe. The knowledge we get are sent from above and my Father knows what we need to survive he on earth for His Glory. In Proverbs 2:2-7 (New King James Version) states that “So that you incline your ear to wisdom, .and apply your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out for discernment, and lift up your voice for understanding, if you seek her as silver, and... ... middle of paper ... ...ody and filling me with joy, a bubbling feeling of comfort and pleasure at the same time and it also felt like I wasn’t even there experiencing those blessing in my life. In conclusion, My knowledge and assurance in God Almighty, through His word, His Spirit and relying on the knowledge I received from Him in a matter of senses and logical explanations has given me the strength, blessing and the understanding to just trust Him in all that I do for His Glory and Honor. We have learned that our senses and rational equations can help us in our decision-making, to help us grow in knowledge and to seek Him first in all that we do. In Christ! References Nash, R. H.
