How hungry are you to know God? What do you do (practically speaking) to get to know Him better?
One method I’ve often used to move closer to God is to think through His characteristics…using an acrostic. It keeps me focused and it helps me stretch past the normal Biblical words, to a more personal approach.
So, let’s go through the alphabet, letter-by-letter…and name some characteristics about God that we have found to be true in our own experience. I’ll start…
God, thank You that You (are):
Believe in me
Care about me
Devoted to me
Everywhere in my world
Interested in me
Mindful of my pain/disappointments/sadness/hurts
Never unkind or too busy or hurried
Provider of every physical, emotional, spiritual, & financial need I have
Right alongside me every moment in all things
Trustworthy…Your “Word” is “good”
Unwavering in Your pursuing a love relationship with me
Vie for my affections
Want to spend time with me just because I’m me
X-tatic when I spend time with You
Yearn for a deep relationship with me
Zealous in showering me with displays of Your love
There! That’s my acrostic! Now it’s your turn!
Let me know what you think. Was this helpful to get you outside the box in your devotional time with Your Creator, the Lord God Almighty?
I heard a radio message last week. The topic was our relationship with God. God wants our whole heart. He will come as close to us as we will let Him. We are the hindrance…not God. The teacher said, “We all have about as much of God as we really want. The real issue is how hungry we are to know Him.”
So, now that you have had time to think about it, “How hungry are you to know God?”
It would be great if you’d comment here so we can share together how we deepen our relationship with the Lord. Our personal “worlds” move so fast, it takes intentional effort to encourage each other to
keep focused on deepening relationships with people AND with God.
