New relationships are fun. There’s a lot of excitement, intrigue, fascination, and mystery as you spend time with this new individual to whom you’re so attracted. That relationship requires invested time, mutual trust, faith, commitment and reverential respect. Getting to know someone well takes time as you encounter new situations and circumstances together and learn of one another.
It’s no different with God. Those relationship patterns are very much the same. But how you go about building that intimacy with Him is somewhat different than a human relationship because it comes by the Holy Spirit who dwells with you and in you. So let’s talk about how to begin a relationship with God as a new believer who is beginning a walk with Jesus Christ. This is a beautiful and powerful journey, and I want you to be prepared.
You may be wondering, “How do I get to know God? Where and how do I begin?” You’ve come to the right place, and I’d like to help you. Feeling overwhelmed with the thought of knowing God is natural, but God wants to relieve you of that feeling, and reveal to you just how real and personal He is. You should be comforted by knowing that God has initiated relationship with you, and He longs for intimate fellowship with you even more than you long for Him. You can rest confident that He is very much available and ever present, ready to meet with you wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing.
Here, I’m going to give you some pointers that can help you get started in your relationship with Him. I invite you to visit my BLOG for particular topics, or use the search bar on this site for help in finding material for special areas of need.
