Build An Intimate Relationship with God (Noon)
Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.
The pandemic that has happened for more than one year has changed the lives of many people. Some have lost or gone for bankruptcy, some have improved their lives. Jhoni is one of them. He usually lived in the city but now he has to be willing to live in the village together with his in-laws who sometimes seem to ignore him. He also has to be willing to travel quite far to reach his workplace. Even so, Jhoni has not been discouraged. He has studied the Word of God a lot, so he does not get disappointed and hurt by both of his in-laws or current situation.
Even though Jhoni has to do many things on daily basis, he still makes special time to build his altar by praying, doing praise and worship, and also listening and reading the Word of God. Jhoni can feel that God loves him very much. Many unexpected blessings that God sent to his life. He has received things that are impossible for men but God gave them to his life.
Just like how we are close with someone and always want to be near him, God is also happy when we draw close to Him. When we like to build an intimate relationship with God in prayer, praise and worship, and the Word, then we will become God’s beloved. No matter how our past or current situations, God loves it when we spend more time for Him. Therefore, if we are longing to be His beloved children, then start to change our habits. Make a special for God every day. Seek Him with all your heart, then He will draw near to us. When we become God’s beloved, He will give more portion to us. He would even give us things that we never imagined or thought.
When we love building an INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD in prayer, praise and worship, and the Word, then we will be the BELOVED OF GOD.
