INTIMACY WITH GOD
There is a subtle difference that divides the religious from the truly Christian. Something a prayer prayed by Arthur Burns reminded me of.
Malachi 3:7 NASB "From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from My statutes, and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you," says the Lord of hosts.”
To have Intimacy with the Lord God bring unbelievable fruits to a believers life.
It is in intimacy we learn what the voice of God sounds like. This is where we become one with God where we can live like Jesus did.
There are so many benefits in having a intimate Relationship with the Lord our God.
But how do we achieve that? We do so on many levels some i want us to look at today.
The first i want to mention is Trust (This is how we develop our faith in God)
Proverb 3:5-6 Trust the Lord with all your heart, And do not rely on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths smooth.
We must learn how to trust God if you don't God may I Dear say you will not make it very far in knowing him.
The second is This We Must Pray (This is where the Love for God Happens.)
when we Pray we connect with God, Now I am not taking about that Prayer you do like come before God the same way you would Santa clause at the mall 12 days before Christmas.
