One on One with God

Description

Jesus often left people to go be alone with the Father in a quiet place. The invitation from God is for us to do the same. He's waiting to encounter you in that place.

To live in intimacy with God, we must build into our lives the discipline of solitude and silence. We must respond when the Lover of our souls calls us to a place of solitude to be alone with Him. We seek God through the spiritual disciplines. By engaging in the spiritual disciplines, we keep our lives open to God so that He can do in us and through us what He desires. He can fulfill His purpose through us when we are accessible to Him. Your need or your desire is simply His entry point into your life. In meeting your need and fulfilling your desire, He is drawing you to deeper dependence on Him and deeper intimacy with Him.

Scriptures for Reflection:

“Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her” (Hos. 2:14).

“I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose for me” (Ps. 57:2). 

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:19).

“I have set the LORD always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure” (Ps. 16:8-9).

Challenge:

Let the peace in your innermost being spill over into your body. During your prayer time, start by consciously relaxing. Breathe in deeply, then breathe out slowly. As you breathe out, let your inner peace fill your body. Feel your muscles relaxing. Enjoy the feeling of complete peace and restfulness. Let thoughts of Him flood your mind and permeate your body with peace.
