DEVELOP AND SUSTAIN INTIMACY WITH GOD [MARK 3:13-15, PSALM 27:4-6]

Share

The first thing God called us to, as believers, is to intimacy with Himself. Intimacy with God is a non-negotiable issue in our lives that threaten the devil. The proof of intimacy with God is brokenness. Intimacy is what you get by entering into consistent and continuous fellowship with God.

Benefits of Intimacy with God are as follows:

•Accuracy: Your accuracy in life and work is an outflow of your intimacy with God.

•Impregnation: God impregnates you with visions and answers for your day and generation.

•Resemblance: Who you get intimate with is who you will resemble.

•Divine secrets (Job 29: 2-4): Intimacy with God opens his secrets to you.

•Promotion (Psalm 37:4-5): Promotion without intimacy is a snare.

•Power: Intimacy with the powerful makes you powerful.

•Revelations: God reveals who He is, what you are and what He wants you to be when you are in intimacy with Him.

•Glory of God: The glory of God comes upon you when you get intimate with Him. Look at Moses’ testimony in Exodus 34:29.

•Wisdom (Acts 4:13): Godly wisdom enunciates from intimacy.

•Purity (Psalm 15): God cleanses you in the place of intimacy.

•Authenticity (John 7:36-39): you get your own authentic rivers of insight and concepts from the Father.

•Intimacy brings heat and fire: Lack of intimacy generates strange fire.

•Intimacy brings originality: You become the real you that God made.

•Intimacy brings exchange (Isaiah 40:30-31): Exchange of your weakness for His strength, beauty for ashes, oil of joy for mourning and peace for despair.

 

PRAYERLord, help me and bring me to that place of intimacy with you. Deliver me from undue busyness and the devil’s attack against my intimacy with you in Jesus’ name. Amen.
