Spending Time With God
Hey there Lovebugs :)
How many of us know that it's very important to spend time with those we love? Not only does it make our relationships stronger but spending quality time helps us to learn more about our love ones and ourselves. Now, what if we take this same principle and apply it to our relationship with God? After all, how can we have a relationship with Him if we don't spend time with Him?
Spending time with God is the most important thing we can do in our relationship with Him. There are SO many benefits to spending time with God. The more time we spend with Him, the more we learn about Him and ourselves. The more time we spend with Him, the more we learn the truth, the more we find our healing and the kore we become whole. Everything that we seek can be found in Him!
Now, some of you might be asking, how do you spend time with God. Well, the first thing to do is pray. Prayer is simply a conversation between you and God. Thank Him for Him and His goodness. Tell Him what's on your mind. Tell Him how bad you messed up. Tell Him how much you need Him. Be real with God. He's longing for us to be best friends with Him. And check this out: the more you disclose to God, the closer you'll get to Him and the closer you get to Him, the more you trust Him. Now I will say this, beware of the enemy. He will do everything in His power to keep us from having a relationship with God. He'll tell us that we're too busy or that God won't listen to us. But the devil is a liar! I personally have experienced this. I would be hesistant to come to God because I was so scared of what God had to say. And the more time I spent being in fear, the more time I spent away from God which is what the enemy wants! We are suppose to be running to Him, not away from Him.
Another great way to spend time with God is to read His Word. By reading His Word, you learn more about Him, like how loving He is (John 3:16), compassionate (Psalm 145:8), slow to getting angry and forgiving (Numbers 14:18). You get to read about how He wants us to live, solutions to our problems and what He requires of us to receive His blessings. God will minister to us through His Word. We just have to take the time out to read it!
So Lovebugs, I encourage you to spend time with your God. Get to know Him. Find out for yourself how great His is. Trust me, this will NOT be time wasted! Know also, there will be days where you will have to fight tooth and nail to spend quality time with God but know that in the end, it'll all be worth it!
