"A Prayer for Relationship"
“I pray to the God of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is the glorious Father. I keep asking him to give you the wisdom and understanding that come from the Holy Spirit. I want you to know God better.” Ephesians 1:17
There is a song that I have heard on the radio on a number of occasions. The words of its chorus go like this “the one thing I desire is just to know you more”. It speaks of one who yearns and desires relationship with God. One who wants to put their own desires and passions aside to know Gods passions and desires.
It is comforting to know that the Lord is passionate about us as well. Over and over in the scriptures we read God’s words to his people to come and know him. Even though we can ignore his prompting and can even be hard headed at times God still reaches out to us, and he still loves us passionately.
As you embark upon your day today, know this with certainty that you are loved by God and that he wants you to know him more today.
