Job 42:5 "I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear. But now my eye sees you.
'Heard of You' - is a distant relationship. God wants closer fellowship with all of us. Even though none of us enjoy pain, sometimes it's the only thing that causes us to draw near to God. Once we see Him, nothing is left to imagination. We start to 'know' God instead of just having information we have heard about Him. God is very present in the fire. Draw near to Him & He will draw near to you.
