How to Spend Time With God

December 30, 2021

When things are going well in our lives, it is easy to take the blessings that we have for granted. We may not even think about God at all. However, when life throws us a curveball, and we experience difficulty, we often turn to Him for comfort and guidance. 

It is during these challenging times that communication with God becomes essential. If you are struggling and don’t know how to communicate with Him, here are some tips to get started.

Ways to Spend Time with Him

Pray to Him

One of the most effective ways to communicate with God is through prayer. Prayer has many important functions, which are interrelated yet different: thanksgiving, adoration, conforming to His will, and making our requests known to Him are the main ones.

Thanksgiving is about giving God glory in all things. On the other hand, adoration is about submitting yourself in faith before His Throne of Grace. Conforming our lives to Him and His will is an important part of the Christian journey; one that we will discuss in more detail in future blogs. Prayer also involves asking for our needs and making our requests before the only One who can change things in our lives.

All of our prayers are predicated on our faith in God, for faith pleases Him greatly.

Reading Holy Scripture

How do you know when someone loves you? When they spend time with you. The same holds for spending time with God through reading His Word. 

Reading God’s Word is not merely about gaining knowledge – it’s an opportunity to spend time with Him, to get to know His character more, and consequently grow closer to Him.

Attend Church Services Regularly

The word ‘church’ comes from the Greek κυριακή (pronounced Kyriaki), which means “the Lord’s Day.” This day is when the first Christians came together to worship God by reading His Word, praising Him through song, and sharing what they had learned with one another. 

Attending church is not about being seen there or gaining knowledge – it’s about participating in the Body of Christ. 

Conclusion

There is no greater relationship in this life than the one you have with your Heavenly Father. Communicating with God is a way to connect with Him personally. It is a way to deepen your relationship with Him. When you take the time to communicate with God, you recognize how important He is in your life.

Remember: “It’s the Situation Keeping My Connection with Him”.
