The third relationship that you can build with God is THE LORD MY GOD. That is the highest and the safest level of relationship with God. Here, any matter that concerns you personally and will affect you personally, God owes you an obligation to talk to you personally about it.
I will be sharing with you practical things you must do to build up THE LORD MY GOD.
1)A personal confidence in the Bible; accept the Bible at face value, first and foremost. You must believe in the word of God first and foremost because the reason so many people don’t develop their personal work with God is because they don’t believe what the Bible says. If it says your sins are forgiven, you must accept it as forgiven. You must accept if you are born again that you are a child of God. No one will progress as a Christian if there is the slightest iota of question in your heart about the Bible.
2)Spend time with God in intimacy. Develop confidence in the Bible and spend time with God. The Bible said I call unto me and I will answer you, pray in name of Jesus, just believe that and then, spend time with God.
3)Be open and honest with God. Don’t play hanky-panky with God. Don’t be religious in God’s presence be real.
4)Let your conduct with God be bounded by the Bible. Don’t let your conduct be bounded by your experience, don’t let your conduct be guided by your situation or by your culture, rather let your experience and your encounters and your relationship with God be bounded by the Bible.
5)Increase your experience with God. We are not perfect, we are all maturing and growing. Bound your experience with God, with the scriptures and start growing from there. If you say that you have grown to a place and don’t need to come to church, I say you are violating the Bible and you are a backslider. Bible says don’t neglect the assembly of yourselves together.
PRAYER: Lord, take me deeper in my walk with you. Create in me a hungry and a thirsty heart that will long for your presence in Jesus’ name. Amen.
