Deeper Relationship

“God Is Faithful” Today –  November 2nd

Just tell me what to do and I will do it, Lord. As long as I live, I’ll wholeheartedly obey.” – – Psalm 119:33 (LB)

Deeper Relationship
by Larry Burkett

From the first day that I accepted Christ as my Savior, I made this commitment to the Lord: “God, You know that I’m an ignorant person; I don’t know a lot about You, so I only
ask that whatever You want me to do You will make it very clear. As of this day, I pledge that I will never again be willfully disobedient.”The way to know more about God is by reading and studying His Word. You can’t possibly know about Him unless you know what His Word says. The way you get to know God personally is by spending time in prayer (talking to God). As I’ve said before, I’ve never heard His voice audibly, but I have sensed His presence many times, and I have sensed His direction.

God never gives direction in contrast to what He has already said in His Word. That is
His will for us: His Word.

Just accepting Christ doesn’t develop a personal relationship with the Lord. That would
be like getting married and the two of you moving to opposite sides of the U.S. and not
seeing one another for the next 50 years. You’d still be married, but you wouldn’t have much
of a relationship.

To deepen your relationship with God, get immersed in His Word (God speaking to
you) and spend time in prayer (you speaking to God). It must be done one-on-one if you
want it to be a personal relationship.
