The most important relationship of our life is the relationship we have with our God. This relationship can be cold, distant and one sided or it can be intimate and interactive. God wants to have a relationship with humans. He created a human being, who has a free will and with whom He could have a relationship with. He wants to talk with us. He wants to spend time with us and share His heart with us.
All the same principles that work with our relationships with other people apply to our relationship with God. If you see and talk with someone rarely, it is natural that your relationship is distant. On the other hand, if you talk with your friend everyday on the phone, your relationship is close. To that person you tell secrets and the joys and the worries in of heart.
God is a person. He is not a cloud or a mist. He is a person, who wants to encounter your person. A relationship demands everyday attention. A relationship demands words everyday. It is not enough that you become a believer and you say on the altar: “I will tell you then when I won’t be believing in You anymore.” You wouldn’t do that to your spouse, instead you tell about your love to them many times and in many ways.
So how do I deepen my relationship with God?
First, be very honest before God. Talk to Him all the good, bad and ugly things. Talk to Him all the things you scarcely dare to admit to yourself. Take Him as a person who hears and lives beside you and sees your every step.
Secondly, make sure you spend time with Him everyday. It may be during the day beside your work. But the best way is to separate some time for Him so He knows, what is the moment He can really talk to you and teach you His ways.
Thirdly, take Him with you in the happy events of your life. Give a call to heaven, when something good is happening to you. Tell Him how you rejoice in this good thing you have had or encountered in life. Don’t forget Him when the sun is shining in your life. Then He will be close and easily available when you have a rainy day.
Your relationship with God is your most important relationship. You will enjoy that relationship the whole eternity.
