Relationships are such an integral part of our lives ~ and we long for those quality relationships ~ the ones where we can share honestly from our heart, request and listen to their wisdom, and depend on ~ developing an unbreakable trust . Often times though, true relationships are hard to come by; and many of us have been hurt so deeply by ‘relationships’ we mistrusted. Yet, there is One for which we were created and can trust beyond compare!
Relationship is described in Merriam-Webster as ~ ‘The way in which two or more people … talk to, behave toward, and deal with each other; are connected“
Our relationship with God can be so intimate, when we take away traditions and religion and just talk to ~ connect and commune ~ with Him, one on one. He longs for us to be in relationship with Him. Think of the beginning of mankind, when He formed us and ‘breathed the breath or spirit of life into us!’ (Gen 2:7). Think about the Love He has for us ~ that truly unconditional love ~ to the point of laying down His Son’s life for us!
And, then He teaches us to seek Him, to abide in Him, to ask Him, to believe by faith. And, in return He responds with I will … listen, answer, comfort, guide your steps, provide, I will make a way… when you seek me with ALL of your heart and mind! Sometimes it’s hard to allow ourselves the freedom to receive God’s love because we’ve been so hurt in this world ~ but allow yourself a moment to reach out to Him. God hears your cries! Your part is to seek Him, and to stop long enough to fellowship with Him.
Kari Jobe’s song ~ The More I Seek You ~ in part says it this way:
“The more I find you,
the more I love you
I wanna sit at your feet,
drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breath,
hear your heart beat
This love is so deep,
it’s more than I can stand.
I melt in your peace, it’s overwhelming…”
Don’t you want that peace in the midst of the calamity of life? Will you, for a moment stop and envision yourself sitting at the feet of God, drinking in His Love, His Wisdom, His peace; laying down all of your concerns at His feet, trusting Him … and just sit back and hear His heart beat. Psalm 46:10 says: “Be still, and know that I am God!”
“This is how we know we’re living steadily and deeply in him, and he in us: He’s given us life from his life, from his very own Spirit. Also, we’ve seen for ourselves and continue to state openly that the Father sent his Son as Savior of the world. Everyone who confesses that Jesus is God’s Son participates continuously in an intimate relationship with God. We know it so well, we’ve embraced it heart and soul,
this love that comes from God.”
