Developing Your Relationship with God


Some time ago my wife, Terry (her blog) gave me a great gift that has kept on giving…She gave me the book Intimacy with the Almighty by Chuck Swindoll. It started me on a journey to deepen my walk with God, which continues to this very day. Here are a few thoughts from my journal…

“Superficiality is the curse of our age. The doctrine of instant satisfaction is a primary spiritual problem. The desperate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people, or gifted people, but for deep people.” Richard Foster

(Philippians 3:10 Amplified Bible)

Paul counted all his accomplishments as rubbish compared to knowing Christ. Do I value my accomplishments more than intimacy with Christ?

Swindoll mentions 4 decisions and 4 disciplines for greater intimacy with the Almighty. During the next days I will highlight each one:

What will you do this year to improve your relationship with God?  Leave a comment.
