Jeremiah the Prophet quoted God as saying: "But let him that glories, glory in this THAT HE UNDERSTANDS AND KNOWS ME, that I am the LORD who exercises loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, says the LORD. (Jeremiah 9:24) God can be known. Believers can taste of the LORD and know he is good. We can understand him to the extent he reveals his purposes to us. We can see him working in circumstances as we grow up into his Light. There are even a few of the more devout who walk in his Spirit and know his ways which are not man's ways.
The beginning of knowing God is true repentance from having lived sinful lives in spiritual darkness. Upon receiving the baptism of the holy Ghost, the elect come into the Light of God revelation by revelation to where they understand and know God better as they become more and more sanctified by the truth that God is.
God is infinite and we are finite. We cannot contain all of the knowledge God possesses nor can we ever learn all he understands infinitely. What we can learn as children of God growing into the stature of Sons of God is how to live according to his perfect will in his Spirit.
The path to knowing God is through obedience to him as he reveals himself through the Spirit of his holy Word to those who seek him with all their heart, soul, mind and strength continually.
