God wants a relationship with all of his children.
He wants to talk to you and guide you on the right path.
He even cares about your feelings and your desires.
God's relationship with each of his children are unique and special.
Here are some key elements to develop and strengthen your RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD:
ASK: God to come into your heart and accept him as your Lord and savior.
REMEMBER: Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, that you may have a right relationship with God and have eternal life through him. God loves you very much!
KNOW: That God wants his children, after this life, to live eternally in heaven with him. Your eternal destination is determined by your faith, actions and relationship with God.
"God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him." 1 John 4:9 NLT
**** After you ask God into your heart and believe that Jesus Christ died for you, complete the following list daily, to strengthen your relationship with God. ****
Prayer is our direct connection to God. You can communicate with God and if you listen, God can communicate with you as well. Prayer is a time when you can worship God, thank God and ask for forgiveness for your sins. Also, you can tell God your worries, ask God to help you overcome your weaknesses and anything else that maybe on your heart. Choose a quiet place to pray and talk to God. Jesus teaches us how to pray in the bible, in Matthew 6: 9-13.
"Our Father in heaven, may your name be kept holy. May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us. And don't let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one." Matthew 6:9-13 NLT
2. Practice Gratitude
When you are thankful for everything God has given you, this pleases him. Practicing Gratitude everyday keeps you focused on the blessings you do have, instead of what you do not have. When you are thankful for your blessings, this opens the door for you to receive more blessings. It is God's will for us to always be thankful.
