Intimacy with God and our desire to know Him more pleases God more than we know. The God we serve is the God who created the heavens and the earth and everything in them. He created us. He knows all. We say that quite often but pause and really think about the fact that there is nothing that our God does not know. He’s never caught off guard by anything.
So given the fact that God knows everything there is to know about everything and about everyone, why does He desire fellowship with us? How weird is that. It’s like buying yourself a present, wrapping it up and pretending to be surprised and excited as you unwrap it.
Intimacy with God boils down to one thing. Intimacy with God is about our desire to get to know Him as intimately as He knows us.
When we meet and start a friendship with someone, what makes the relationship interesting is the fact that with time, we learn about one another. We become intimate with one another. We share things we like to do and places we like to go and the intimate details of our lives with one another. The longer we know one another and the more intimacies we share, the closer we become. It’s the continued sharing of yourself in a relationship that builds intimacy.
No one wants to read the same book over and over again. I know married couples whose relationships have all but dried up and blown away because they feel that they’ve already shared all there is to know about themselves with one another, so now they’re basically just existing together day in and day out.
How do you share intimate details about yourself and your life with someone who already knows everything there is to know about you?
What is Intimacy with God?
Intimacy with God boils down to one thing. Intimacy with God is about our desire to get to know Him as intimately as He knows us. Knowing God as fully as He knows us is something that will never be attained of course, but starting out and continuing down that road is what intimacy with God is all about.
Our God wants to reveal Himself to us in a mighty way, but why should he cast His pearls before swine? Why should He reveal Himself to a people who have no desire to know Him on an intimate level?
We become intimate with God by spending quiet time with Him, by fellowshipping with one another, through the study of His Word, through prayer, and through praise and worship.
As you develop an intimate relationship with God, keep in mind that what we call intimacy is actually the development of a desire to know Him. As was said earlier, He already knows all there is to know about us. In fact, you could learn a lot about yourself by hanging out with God. Not only will He reveal Himself to you, He will reveal things about you to you. Things that you never knew about yourself.
If you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to cultivate a desire to get to know your creator. Developing an intimacy with God is a journey that we will enjoy throughout eternity and surely one that will bless you more than you can imagine.
