Our God is all about relationship. He wants to walk with us. He’s always there for us but sometimes we prefer to walk by ourselves. Have you ever taken a walk with someone and they always try to walk ahead or lag way behind? It’s really hard to communicate if they are not walking WITH you. In order to walk with God, He asks that out of love for Him we respect His ways. His ways are good ways and they certainly save us a lot of heartache. But most of all, if our heart is turned toward God, we will have intimacy with Him.
The deeper that intimacy grows, the more the desire to please Him grows. The desires of His heart become the desires of our heart.
Father, I pray that my heart will be so surrendered to You so that Your ways become mine.
