A real relationship with God requires sacrifice! God wants an intimate deep relationship with you. Take some time to really think on that. Like any other person, getting to know Him requires spending time with Him. Too many of us are missing out on an abundant life because we are not taking advantage of our relationship with Almighty God. Why is it that we can spend hours talking to friends (usually about nothing important), but we strain to pray for more than a few minutes?
An intimate relationship with the Lord will cause you to let go of many things. You will start seeing your attitude change in many areas of your life. Don’t ignore that. Drawing closer to God will show you certain people/things that you need to get away from and those that you need to be closer to. It could be spending less time tweeting and more time reading the Bible. It could be less time complaining to your friends about problems and more time telling God about them (who can actually help). Whatever is hindering your spiritual growth is not worth it! If you recognize Him in all that you do, He will direct your paths (Proverbs 3:6). He will take care of everything. Who doesn’t want that?
