We all crave a deeper connection.
Don’t deny that yearning within to connect with God.
If you aren’t sure how, let me offer up a framework for you to consider.
Treat Him like you would a lover or someone on earth that you desire to get closer to.
So what are things you would do to connect with someone? Maybe you would:
- Call the person on the phone or set a time to meet. The same is true for God. Make time to connect through prayer (which is just chatting with God), meditation and Bible reading.
- Most friends check up on each other via a text, a call or now on Social Media. Anytime throughout your day, you can just talk with God about whatever is on your mind. Ask Him if there is anything He needs you to do. You’ll be surprised!!!
- You are going to consider a friends opinion. Before taking leaps into the many facets of life. Run it by God. He may have a better plan or He may offer up an easier route than the one you were about to take. Since God is all-knowing, His thoughts should matter deeply to you!
- You are going to want to hear from a friend. Relationships require two people right? God still speaks! We have to quiet the soul in order to hear from the Spirit. This is where meditation comes in. You don’t need 20 minutes either. Start with just a few minutes in silence, asking God to please speak to you.
The thing about our God that should give us great peace and a great sense of confidence in Him is that,
He is fulfilled all in Himself. He doesn’t need you. He wants you. To be desired by the creator of the the universe is such a beautiful thing!
So you don’t have to remain thirsty or needy or lonely or confused.
Maybe, before you expire, you’ll meet Him. You won’t be disappointed.
The Source is always waiting.
