A Deeper Relationship with Jesus
by Susan Ferguson
5/21/2013 / Devotionals
He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)
Jesus delights in having a deep and abiding relationship with you. Every area of your life is of interest to Him, including daily routines that may seem mundane and insignificant. Because of His invisibility and apparent silence, it is difficult for some people to develop a close relationship with Him. He understands the difficulties you face. Through prayer and Bible study, He can help you overcome them.
It delights the Lord when you take your fears and burdens and place them in His hands, for Him to keep. He has perfect knowledge of you, and He understands you better than your family, your friends, and even yourself. He is aware of your sins and weaknesses, yet He still loves you and is eager to forgive you. His love for you is unconditional.
I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. (Jeremiah 31:3)
It delights the Lord when you seek guidance prior to making decisions rather than striking out on your own. So many times we miss the mark and end up on our knees as a last resort. As you witness His faithfulness in your life, you can learn to let go of trusting in only yourself and begin placing your trust in Jesus. Although you cannot see Him visibly, He is there. It delights the Lord when you open up your heart to Him, revealing your hopes and dreams and seeking His will for your life. This precious time with the Lord yields rich and fertile soil for trust to grow. As trust grows, your relationship with Jesus grows. When you truly grasp His great love for you and the delight He has in you, you can develop a deeper relationship with Him. Jesus Christ is the most important relationship you will ever have in your life.
PRAYER Heavenly Father, help us comprehend the depth of your love and the delight you have in us. Bring us to a deeper and more abiding relationship with Christ. Let us never forget that Jesus is the most valuable relationship in our life. In Jesus' name. Amen.
