For the the river of God’s blessing to flow into our lives it’s imperative that we first become intimate with him. We become intimate with God when we cultivate the attitude of worship without barriers. Barriers are impediments or anything that obstructs or limits your fellowship with God. Like new-weds that would wisely disperse the crowd of well wishers and loved ones in order for them to spend time together, we should always identify and prayerfully get rid of all barriers: We must learn to be alone with him. This is so important because it’s our level of intimacy with God that determines our degree of access to His blessing. God is committed to love those who love Him. Proverb 8:17. It’s easy to understand this when you consider the fact that nobody will allow a stranger or an acquaintance into his treasure room.
Are you a ‘stranger’ to God? Has the word of God been able to affect every facet of your life? God will not open up to you until you open up to him. James 4:8 says, “Draw nigh to God, and he
will draw nigh to you.” Big fishes are not caught in shallow water.
Abraham walked closely with God. He obeyed God and He called him His friend. James 2:23. The blessings of Abraham are still evident today. Genesis 22:18. King David was also intimate with God. God said, “I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfill all my will.” Acts 13:22.
We also know that David enjoyed God’s unusual blessing. In fact even the throne of heaven is called after David. Isaiah 9:7, Luke 1:32. It’s your turn to enjoy God’s uncommon blessing. Let the Holy Spirit take His place in your heart and your life will nev- er remain the same.
