Building A Relationship With God

Lamentations 3: 23-25-
Great is his faithfulness; his loving-kindness begins afresh each day. My soul claims the Lord as my inheritance; therefore I will hope in him. The Lord is wonderfully good to those who wait for him, to those who seek for him.



What is your relationship with God like? Are you even sure you have a relationship with God?

No one on earth knows what it takes to get into Heaven... But I will tell you this-
ANYONE who has faith, Who has a relationship with God, WILL get into Heaven.

Am I 100% Sure? Yes. Jesus states in the bible-
Matthew 7:21-23
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’


He has to KNOW you. YOU have to know him!
If you are really dedicated to get to know God, here are a few helpful tips-



Praying- It's the easiest way to take to God. He, after all knows what you need before you pray.





Reading the bible- Learning God's word is SO important in accepting him into your heart.



After all that is done. LOVE him. Even if you still doubt him. Even if you think you don't have him. Even if you don't believe- Love him.


God is MY truth. My light. And my reason to live. So what is he for you?


Devotions-
Love God. Even when the going gets tough, say "Thank you, Lord!". Because he not only created you, but he loves you. He IS in the tough stuff, and he is right by your side through it all. God did say he would credit the hurt, and not the hurtful.



Verse- Matthew 7:7
