How To Love God More

(Don’t use any language that could be interpreted as faith-based.) As a Mom, I often find myself at the end of the day wondering if my kids are growing well. When they were smaller, it was more evident. They grew taller, their vocabulary increased, and they learned new skills like walking or drawing stick figures. But now that they are older, I realize that while there is plenty of physical growth happening (they are teens after all), I want to make sure I am helping them grow in character and wisdom too. And this applies to mom’s relationships with God as well. Growth takes effort; it doesn’t just happen. We can’t simply sit around and expect our children to flourish if we aren’t doing anything to help them along the way. The same goes for us in our relationship with God: we have to intentionally make an effort to get closer to him and spend time learning from him so that we can become more like him every day

How To Love God More

Intimacy

Intimacy is a close, personal relationship between two people. God is a person, and He wants to have a close relationship with you. You can have an intimate relationship with God because He is personal.

God wants to be close to us in every way we can imagine! Intimacy means that we can talk to Him about anything—our feelings and needs, our problems and struggles—and He will listen and respond (James 1:19). Intimacy also means that we can ask Him for anything—anything at all!

Assurance

  • God is faithful.
  • God is good.
  • God is in control, and He has a plan for your life that will bring you joy and peace (Romans 8:28).
  • You are His child, so He protects you from evil and danger (Psalm 121:7-8; Proverbs 18:10).
  • It’s His job to feed your body with the food it needs (Matthew 6:11), but it’s also His desire to feed your soul with truth from His Word (John 6:35).
  • When we’ve been hurt by others or if we’ve made mistakes ourselves, He heals us through forgiveness and grace (1 John 1:9).

Obedience

Obedience is the key to loving God.

When we obey Him, it shows that we love Him. When we show our love for someone else by doing what they ask us to do, then you know that this person loves you in return. Obedience is another way of saying “I am so thankful for everything You’ve done for me.”

Declarations

Declarations are a way to express your love for God. There are two times in the day that you should make declarations: morning and evening.

Declarations should be specific and clear. When you’re making a declaration, it’s important to think about what exactly it is that you want to declare your love for God about. Do you have something specific in mind? If not, then choose something different instead! For example: “I love God for his ability to create such beautiful things.” This sentence is much less powerful than saying this sentence out loud: “I love God because he created all these beautiful colors!”

This is another example of how declarations should be specific and clear! It’s also important that when making declarations they are made in the presence of others because this will help build up their faith while also encouraging them toward greater acts of charity or virtue (i.e., giving food away). This can even include just saying aloud what we’re doing right now—like eating dinner together as family after church service one Sunday afternoon–or praying together before bedtime every night by reading scriptures together as part of our nightly routine every weeknight evening during Advent season leading up until Christmas Eve Day itself; maybe even even more so if there’s someone else living here who wants someone else like me too besides my husband doing so with him instead? Would those kinds actions show other people around us how much we care about them personally?”

Loving God more involves intimacy, assurance, obedience and declarations.

Loving God more involves intimacy, assurance, obedience and declarations.

Intimacy with God is about knowing that He is for us and not against us (Romans 8:31). It involves understanding that we have been justified by faith in Christ alone (Romans 5:1), adopted as sons (Ephesians 1:5) and given an inheritance at the right hand of Christ (Ephesians 1:11).For those who believe in Christ, assurance comes from the fact that they are saved through grace (Ephesians 2:8-9). Knowing this should lead you to live a life of holiness because you have been chosen by God for salvation through Jesus’ death on the cross (1 Peter 2:9). You were chosen before creation was made so don’t feel guilty about your past sins but instead confess them because Jesus died for those too!
