Daily Devotion

Hey!

I’ve been thinking all day on what to talk about today. In the midst of work, play, and other stuff we sometimes don’t have enough time for developing our personal relationship with God. So since this is what came to mind, I’ll speak on it!

Being a Friend to God

In any relationship, you have to build on it. You know, first introduce yourself. Have the introductory convos–Where are you from? What do you do for a living? etc., etc. And then you being the process of getting to know each other. You decide from those few things and possible connection whether you want to pursue the relationship. With God, it is a similar process. First you must give your life over to God–For everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord [invoking Him as Lord] will be saved. Romans 10:13

After you make that decision, you must spend time with Him–in His presence through prayer and meditation–

  • This we proclaim concerning the Word of life…We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. (1st Jn 1:1-4)
  • “But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. {30} “When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the LORD your God and obey His voice {31} ‘(for the LORD your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them. (Deuteronomy 4:29-31 NKJV)
  • All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, {17} that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV)
  • The LORD is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous. Proverbs 15: 29(NKJV)

But this process does not end! You must learn to listen to God’s voice and obey Him! We must live as He commands and we will reap the blessings He promises us!

  • So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. 1 Peter 1:14
  • For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalm 84:11

Build that relationship and receive your every heart’s desire–wisdom, guidance, deliverance, healing, whatever it is that is in His will for your life!
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give yo the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. John 15:7

Love you and good night East Coasters!
