Yesterday, we looked at entering a relationship with God as the first pointer to entering into intimacy with Him. Let's go to the next point:
2. Your Born-Again Relationship is an Invitation to an Experience
Beyond being born again, there are further activities that build your relationship towards intimacy with God. The born-again relationship is like the wedding day that gives a couple the legal rights to enjoy each other. But how much of each other they enjoy, will be affected by several things. For example, some couples have been married 10 years and are still on honeymoon, whereas 10 years of married for another couple resulted in a divorce. If you want to get intimate with someone the relationship must not be dormant. It must be continually serviced through interaction.
Through prayer, there are three categories of people you can get into intimacy with either in the spirit or physical:
a.    Who you pray to;
b.    Who you pray for;
c.    Who you pray with;
Doing any of these gets you intimate with people spiritually and supernaturally. When you see a husband and wife that are not flowing together, it is because they have not been praying for each other. As soon as you begin to pray for your spouse, or anyone, there is a supernatural intimacy that begins to draw you together.
My wife and I pray together frequently. If she sees me praying, she joins me to pray. So, intimacy is just woven into our lives. I pray with the pastors in the Dream Centre Church and you can see the result in how we are so close to each other.
PRAYER: Father, I press into a deeper, richer and closer experience with you. I seek an ever-growing intimacy by coming to know you in the place of prayer in Jesus name. Amen!
