Prayers for intimacy with God


Hello everyone, thank you so much for clicking on my link. I appreciate you. If you have not subscribed to my blog, what are you waiting for? Click that subscribe button up there before I judge you. But really, welcome back and thank you.

So since the last blog post, I talked a lot about the love of Jesus and how we have been called into communion with him. Just like an earthly relationship, we spend time with our loved ones because we love them and enjoy their company. This is what our relationship with God is designed to be like. We spend time with him because he loves us and we love him back. The more we know of him through the Bible, the more we love him. If you need a wake-up call on how much God loves you that he gave Jesus, take a look at the book of Numbers. You will come into a deeper understanding of the love of Jesus. God is no longer angry with you, he expended his wrath on Jesus. He is always waiting for you to run into his loving arms.

Many people have written to me to express how much they want to draw closer to God and I believe so much in prayers. I know through prayers and yielding to the leading of the Holy Spirit, we can learn to develop an intimate relationship with God.

I collaborated with a fellow lover of Christ to draw up 10 prayer points to pray for developing intimacy with God. I really hope these prayers opens you up to a different level in your relationship with God.

1. Dear Lord, you know how my end from the beginning please cause me to stay in your will.
2. Dear God, help me to keep my focus solely on you.
3. I can't run this race alone Jesus, please strengthen me.
4. I am young and feeble please guide me through every step of my journey.
5. Even as I serve you, God, please do not let me be an enemy to my self.
6. Help me oh God to understand the finished work on the cross through Jesus Christ.
7. Lord, please fill me with your spirit 
8. Dear Jesus, Help me to understand your voice distinctively.
9. I pray that the eyes of my understanding be enlightened in Jesus name.
10. Help me to love others as you have commanded in Jesus name.

Amen.

With all my love,

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness If you follow me on twitter for a while now, you will see that I always talk about how powerful your righteousness consciousness is compared to sin consciousness. I often roll my eyes when I see people discussing if something is sin or not sin. Do you know someone that is always talking about what is sin or isn’t sin? Or have you found yourself saying “I must be careful not to sin today, God help me not to sin” every day? This is being sin-conscious! You have not sinned yet but you are over-focused on the power of sin rather than the righteousness of God that you are as a believer . Hebrews 10:2-3 (TPT) For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure. &q

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hi Bi-blings, it's been a hot minute I did a post on relationship and marriage. I guess it's timely because my 2 years wedding anniversary is next week and I'm in the romantic love space so I figured I might as well. So why is it important to discuss these things? Well, it's necessary because it eliminates a lot of headaches you may have along the way. It may not eliminate it all completely but there won't be any surprises. Imagine if after you said "I do", the person reveals that they are not interested in children and you want 2 kids. Where would you start from? There are so many conflicts that can be avoided altogether by having these difficult conversations before you say I do. Money Listen, money is very important in marriage. If you're not talking about your money habits now, you are setting yourself up for hard conversations down the line. Ask questions about
