Today’s discussion is on Fellowship with God
We were created to relate to God. We have the opportunity to walk each day with Him and to talk about everything that is happening to us. We can tell Him about our work, our families, our church, and our world. Specific times set aside for communing with Him can help, but we should also keep in constant communion with the Father through the day. This is what the apostle Paul meant when he told us to “pray without ceasing” and to be “praying always” (Ephesians 6:18).
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Our personal needs are important to God, everyday we should freely express our concerns to Him.
Although we talk to the Lord about our needs and spiritual growth, this is not to be our only concern. As we continue our walk in this world, there will be times when we may need to talk to the Lord for others (called intercession). Sometimes life can cause our heart to be in pain, and one may not know who to call on. We as intercessors can step in for them, and call upon the one that can give them peace. Jesus Himself prayed for His disciples (John 17). We are part of a body of believers who depend on each other.
When we acknowledge God’s part in our lives and realize our complete dependency on Him, we will want to express our gratitude to Him for everything He has given us. Thanksgiving flows freely from a heart that has grown to appreciate the generosity of God. If we recognize that we are talking to God, ‘Our Father”, we will think about His Grace and His Love, and tell Him that we love and appreciate Him.
