“But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.”
Matthew 6:6 NLT
Intimate time with God is so important. Whether you’re going through something or not, He’s ready to talk, if you’re ready to listen. It’s a REALationship that we have and He becomes more real the closer we get to Him. Sometimes, like a friend, I might have a brief 5 minute conversation with Him – and that’s okay. But I treasure deeply those talks for hours that we have, like lovers. When I can’t sleep, I can call on Him. If I want someone to stay up with, He’s there. He’s my forever man and first husband ❤️
I used to feel like I couldn’t FEEL God or I couldn’t hear Him yet it was because I treated Him like a stranger. Worse than that, He was my sidepiece. I’d hit Him up whenever I needed something and then I’d be gone until the next time. I abused and neglected my relationship yet I wanted all the perks. But Him being so loving to me, He remained faithful.
Are you cheating on God?
Are you treating Him like your sidepiece? Or is He a stranger to you?
I encourage you, right now, to stop and repent from that. Tell Him you’re sorry and pray that He shows you the places in your life that He needs to be. Go into that secret place with Him. Open your heart to hear what He’s saying.
His presence is your reward.
