“I would love to spend time with you” -God.

Sunday 10 July 2011

I love spending time with my friends! Time with friends- shopping, cafes, great conversations, watching a dvd, going for a walk- leaves me feeling refreshed, positive and uplifted. 

As Christians, spending time with God should be as fun, enjoyable and rejuvinating as spending time with our friends. That’s right- God desires to have a friendship with us and to help us become more and more like the beautiful women He has created us to be.

Proverbs 2:2-4 & 6 (NLT) says, “Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver, seek them like hidden treasures…For the Lord grants wisdom! From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”

How can we apply these verses to our lives?

  • Spend time with God through reading His word. Although many view the bible as simply a historic text, it is so much more than that. It may not have been written in our lifetime, yet it is a rich resource of wisdom relevant to all aspects of our lives. Make a decision to read God’s wisdom and to ensure that you understand it.
  • Spend time with God through talking to Him. Just as we often sit down with a friend and ask them for their advice and opinions, we should have a great interest in finding out from God what He thinks. Make a decision to be honest with God about how you are feeling and to ask him to reveal to you His perspective of the situation.
  • Treasure spending time with God. People can easily pick up if you’re not really wanting to be around them and don’t value their company. Why would God be any different? He doesn’t want people spending time with Him because they “have to” or because it’s on the “To Do List for Good Christians.” Make a decision to approach your time with God with joy.

A Girl of Wisdom places significant value on her friendship with God. She makes it a priority to build this friendship through reading the bible and speaking to Him. Her heart fills with joy and gratitude knowing that God loves spending time with her.
