1 Chronicles 28:9
9 “And Solomon, my son, learn to know the God of your ancestors intimately. Worship and serve him with your whole heart and a willing mind. For the Lord sees every heart and knows every plan and thought. If you seek him, you will find him. But if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.
Today I would like to talk briefly about learning to know God intimately. What does that look like? For me knowing God intimately is ongoing. Daily seeking him and learning what he wants from me and for me. Just like my relationship with my husband. I know what he wants and expects of me just like he knows I want and expect form him. Umm most of the time.
Here are some simple ways to learn to know God intimately.
1. Seek him early in the morning when it is quiet. Get alone with God.
2. Worship him. Tell him how much you love him.
3. Ask him to direct you. Let him lead you.
4. Serve him.
5. Give him your whole heart.
This list is not exhaustive but just a few practical ways to start to get to know God more intimately.
