Intimacy with God – Do You Make This Your Key Priority in Life?
Tap into the Great Power Source and Change Your Outlook!
Unfortunately, the natural thing for most of us to do…
is become absorbed in our day-to-day problems and demands.
On any given day, many people face stressful situations,
extreme trials, and even heartbreaks with marriages,
family members, or friends.
All this tends to keep the focus on self.
Learning to Look Beyond
When we learn to look beyond the trials and obstacles and fix our eyes on Jesus, and believe God is Sovereign, we will begin to have a different perspective and response to everything we face. The Bible teaches us that God uses all things, even the painful things, for the good of believers. One of the positive results of trials is the intimacy that can develop when we turn to the Lord for help.
“We know all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.”
— Romans 8:28
Intimacy with God – A Key Priority
God desires an intimate, loving relationship with us, and we should make this relationship our TOP priority. Intimacy with God begins with turning to Him and humbling ourselves before Him. It involves regular time in His Word, time in prayer, and patiently waiting for Him to speak to our hearts.
As we develop a deeper relationship with the Lord, we will understand that every hardship has a purpose. We have lessons to be learned and maturity to be gained. And remember, God has promised to meet the needs of His children, if they come to Him, seek Him diligently, and obey Him.
We can’t live above our circumstances in our own strength, but we certainly can by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Steps for a Closer Walk with the Lord
One – Give God the daily worship He deserves because of who He is and His finished work on the cross. Let Him know you love Him.
Two – Take time to confess all known sin; knowing that if you do, God is faithful and just to forgive and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)
Three – Give thanks regularly to God for all He has done in your life and in your world.
Fourth – Take time to pray daily and ask God to supply your needs.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
— Philippians 4:6
What’s stopping you? Why not tap into the great power source in life? For each of us, our priority in life should be intimacy with God.
May you continually walk closer to the Lord and live a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you always –
