Why take time for relationship with God?
Why have a relationship with God? When times are good a thanks into the heavens is enough, isn't it?
When times turn tough, what then?Do we blame God for our circumstances? Does our belief in God fade away? Like the house built upon the sand will the storm blast in and wash our weak foundational faith out to sea where all that remains is grit, salty tears and bitterness?
Or...do we choose to pursue relationship with God in the good and the bad times? Is God worth our attention, our time, our friendship, our adoration, all the time?
The result of a daily time with God, (reading His word, silencing the heart long enough to listen to how the Spirit leads, praying and communicating our thanks and requests) is powerful. When the storm of life hit (as they will), our house and faith now has a firm foundation built on rock. It will remain solid through the pain, the rain, and the drain of a long winter season. Our security lies in a God we have taken the time to get to know.
We know He is faithful.
We know He loves us.
We are secure in the fact God is always near.
We believe in a good God when life is not good.
We believe the Bible and take comfort in the fact God promises to heal the broken in our life and give strength for each day.
So if times are good, press into your relationship with God and build that firm foundation. If times are tough, press in even harder. You will find strength that passes all comprehension. You will know you are not alone.
Philippians 4: 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
