BLOGMAS DAY 18 | WAYS TO GET CLOSER TO GOD


 
Hey loves
 
As you were setting your New Years resolutions, was improving your relationship with God one of them. Many people confuse religion for relationship but they aren’t the same thing. We are called to have a personal relationship with God, and to grow in that relationship.
The beauty of this relationship, is that it does not require perfection. You can start your relationship with God JUST THE WAY YOU ARE. You don’t have to have it all together at any point or to we’ll presented. All you have to have is a heart ready to hear from God.
I’m sharing some ways you can start where you are and establish your relationship with God in 2020.

Luke 5:16


 
Read your Bible

 The one to hear from God and form a relationship is by reading his word. Take time everyday of 2020 to read His word. Spend time with Him. Do devotional plans and discover more of God.
 
Meditate on the word
 
Meditate on what you read in the word. Think about it and be sure to implement it in your daily life. One way to meditate is to write verses on flashcards and memorize them 
 
Be Thankful 
 
Another way to get closer to God is to be thankful. It’s easy for us to get distracted about everything we don’t have instead of focusing on what God has given us. Growing closer to God must include gratitude 
 
Pray often
 
Like our lead example Jesus, we must put priority on prayer. Prayer is not just a time for us to talk to Hod, but for us to hear from God too. Over and over Jesus withdrew to quiet places to pray often.
 
Surround yourself with believers
 
Another way to grow is through the company you keep. Join a church cell group, serve on a ministry team. When you surround yourself with people walking the faith, they will be able to help you on your walk and journey too.

How are you planning on getting stronger with God in 2020

Love Always
