Our Walk With God

When we spend quiet, uninterrupted time with God in Bible study and prayer, we are renewing our minds and becoming God-focused. We are filling ourselves with God’s Word and taking time to immerse ourselves in his presence. The more we build our relationship with him, the more we will start to reflect Christ in our everyday lives.

Recently, God showed me that our quiet time with God is between Him and us. What I mean by that is this time with him isn’t Joyce Meyer, God, and us, or Charles Stanley, God, and us, or Beth Moore, God, and us. This time is between God and us as individuals.

These studies and authors are GREAT, as a matter of fact I read them myself. But when we are studying their work we are learning from what God has taught them. Our relationship with God is between Him and us.

He has ideas and insights that he wants to share with us as individuals. He could have Bible studies, books, or songs to write, concerts to be played, or leaders to develop. He is waiting to teach, shape, and mold us. We’ve been learning from others what he has in store for them, but by developing our own personal relationship and walking daily in the Word of God, spending time in prayer, and listening for God’s leading we can fully realize who we are in Christ and have a better understanding of how to serve God and others.

I would like to reiterate that reading other people’s Bible studies and Christian books is fine; what I am saying is it shouldn’t be a substitute for your quiet time with the Lord. Join me as we develop a deeper, more intimate relationship with Jesus.
