God-thinking demands a high and lofty view of God. Truly, the way you see God ultimately determines the results of your faith. For you receive God by faith. To know God you must receive Him by faith. You receive who God is by His Spirit. And it is by the indwelling Holy Spirit that you know God at all. Apart from the Holy Spirit, you know not God, nor can you, because God is, and He can only be rightly known of Himself.
