Genuine intimacy requires transparency, vulnerability, truthfulness, and commitment.
Intimacy is a process. It takes communication, time, and awareness of the other person. A question you need to ask yourself is, “How much of God do I really want?”
God wants an intimate relationship with you. You spend intimate time with your husband or wife, and friends. God wants that intimate time too. He wants you to mediate His Word, and spends time in worship telling Him how much you love Him. Not what He can do for you, but Lord what can I do for you. God is waiting on us to want Him more than anything.
God doesn’t want a one night stand. It’s a lifetime commitment to the One who loves you. We were created to walk and talk with Him everyday. Thank Him for what He’s already done in your life. He doesn’t need you telling Him everyday what you need and want. He already knows all this.
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. Matthew 6:31 (NIV)
He knows how many hairs are on your head. He created us.
For me personally I have always had a desire to have that intimate relationship with God. I just did not know how. Now I spend that time talking to Him. Praying in tongues, and being real with Him just like I am with other people. I love it when I hear His voice and know that He is listening to little ole me. Nothing compares to His voice and that’s the way it should be.
