And you shall seek me, and find me, when you shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
Without communication relationships die. I can’t remember where I first read those words, but to me they ring true. In fact, I said them this week to a friend about her long distance relationship. Telephone commercials remind us of the importance of staying in touch with our loved ones far away.
Without communication relationships die. I’ve said this to myself recently and resolved to communicate more frequently with friends by cards and letters—hand written and mailed. Communication is necessary for healthy relationships.
We know this certainly applies to human relationships, but what about our relationship with God?
We are God’s children, adopted into the family of God. We call the Lord Almighty, our Father. Our relationship with God is the ultimate relationship.
We go to Him in prayer.
In Him and through faith in Him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. Ephesians 3:12
Let us therefore draw near with boldness unto the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace to help us in time of need. Hebrews 4:16
Prayer is key to our spiritual relationship. Just as with any other intimate relationship, you need quality time together in order to nurture and grow that relationship. Through prayer I draw close to God and He draws close to me. Through prayer my soul communes with God.
We can pray anywhere, about anything, at any time. There is nowhere that we, as children of God, can be that God will not hear us. We can commune with Him in our hearts or speak out loud.
Are you taking advantage of this amazing privilege? Do you want a closer relationship with God? Pray.
And he (Jesus) withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. Luke 5:16
