God wants you to spend time with Him.
Spend Time With God
In an episode of Growing In Prayer, James Aladiran reminds everyone that God wants to spend time with them. We’ve often heard the phrase, “Christianity is not a religion, it’s a relationship,” but do we really understand that phrase? What does being in a relationship with God looks like?
“The problem with many Christians today is, we want God to do things for us but we don’t like spending time with Him. God is not actually just after doing things for us, He wants us to spend time with Him. And if you think about it, this is the real essence of what it means to be a Christian,” James said.
When we decide to start a relationship with God, we decide to be with God and dedicate our time to Him. Just like any relationship, it requires our time, God wants us to spend time with Him.
“It’s sad to say for many people, this is how they view prayer. They only come to God when they want Him to do something for them. And this perspective on prayer is actually a manifestation of immaturity in our spiritual development.”
Prayer is a two-way communication where we talk to God and God also talks to us. Praying to God only when we need something is a sign of spiritual immaturity. If we want to grow our faith, we must learn how to develop a lifestyle of prayer, we must learn how to spend quality time with our Father.
“Show me the Christian that can pray fervently without crisis, and I’ll show you the Christian that’s rightly positioned to handle the crisis when it arises. See God doesn’t want us to just seek Him when we’re in crisis.”
