Relating to God before you do the asking

Most of the times we human being are more interested in the asking stage of our prayers to God more than the relating stage. God wants a relationship with us before we do the asking. God wants to become our father, a father interested in what interests His child. Though he knows all about us, he stills want to walk with us and learn more from us and hear what our thoughts are. He knows all things, but His openness to spend time with us, listening to our prayer is born out of His love and desire to have a real and vibrant relationship with us.

God, our Heavenly Father, has always desired to be close to us, to have a relationship with us. In the Garden, God met with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day where they could spend time together, sharing thoughts and feelings, similar to the way a good father makes time for his children as the day winds down.  (Genesis 3:8)

We as Christian should learn to walk with God always; we shouldn’t come to God only when we have a request to make. God came and walked with Adam and they had a father to son relationship, this should also be our desire before we do the asking. Our relationship with God is very important than the things we desire to have. Seek first his kingdom first and everything else should be an added advantage. Our father will supply all our needs according to his riches.

 Even though God is shown to be the omnipotent Creator and ruling authority who must be respectfully revered, He also describes Himself as a Father, He is all about family. He designed our family model to mirror His. For Christians, knowing this great truth gives us an advantage to relate to Him on a day to day basis. We can have a warm, affectionate, personal relationship with Him that goes far beyond just acknowledging Him as the One who created us and who gives us beneficial rules to make our lives happy and complete. A relationship with God is the single most important relationship anyone can have.

We are children in God’s eyes and enjoy the special connection and love only a father and his children can enjoy. We are not just servants having a master, but sons and daughters having a Father, this gives us every reason to relate and be in relationship with Him. Our requests should always flow from the relationship we have with our heavenly father and not the other way round.

The relationship that God wants to have with us is rooted in love. Just as good children are interested in spending time with their parents and benefiting from their wisdom, God’s children should be spending time with their Heavenly Father. Therefore, let us learn to relate to God before bringing our requests.

When there is a relationship with God there is a possibility to grow
