Peo­ple in our days don't want to have a re­la­tion­ship with GOD, they are not pre­pared to have an in­ti­macy with GOD yet They want to blessed by him ,they want to be healed, but they don't want a re­la­tion­ship with GOD. Every phys­i­cal re­la­tion­ship is killed by lack of com­mu­ni­ca­tion and dis­tance. There­fore, be­fore God can bless you, he wants to have a con­nec­tion with you. He wants to know your thoughts and your heart.

He wants you to speak to him in a heav­enly lan­guage Isa­iah 65: 24. “Be­fore they call I will an­swer; while they are still speak­ing I will hear. Be­fore you CALL I will an­swer”. This gives a mean­ing that GOD an­swers a char­ac­ter be­fore a prayer, God an­swers a mo­tive be­fore a prayer, so cre­ate a spir­i­tual re­la­tion­ship with GOD. It is not about be­ing blessed, but it is all about be­ing blessed in an in­ti­macy with GOD.

Deep re­la­tion­ship, Philip­pi­ans 3: 10. “I want to know Christ-yes, to know the power of his res­ur­rec­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion in his suf­fer­ings, be­com­ing like him in his death”. Most peo­ple are af­ter power, but not Christ .They are af­ter busi­ness, but not af­ter GOD. The mo­ment they are into busi­ness, the devil uses them be­cause they have re­jected Christ as a foun­da­tion to their busi­ness. JE­SUS wants us to have a re­la­tion­ship with him Colos­sians 3: 2. “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. 3. for you died, and your life is now hid­den with Christ in God. 4. When Christ, who is your life, ap­pears, then you also will ap­pear with him in glory”. When Christ ap­pears, we also ap­pear be­cause of a re­la­tion­ship.

We now re­flect the glory of Christ. His hand is now my hand, his mouth is now my mouth. We speak the same lan­guage be­cause we are one in the spirit. JE­SUS said in John 17: 22. “I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one”. When we re­ceive the glory, we are now con­nected to JE­SUS and the fa­ther. We carry the same na­ture. This is above cars, above money. We are now in the fa­ther be­cause of the re­la­tion­ship.
