Are you feeling disconnected from God, or possibly your spouse?
Many times the sense of being disconnected stems from our lack of closeness. When we draw closer to: God, our spouse, our children, or friends, we narrow the gap of the feeling of disconnect.
Ephesians 1:17-19 (AMPC) says: “[I always pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may grant you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation [that gives you a deep and personal and intimate insight] into the true knowledge of Him [for we know the Father through the Son]. And [I pray] that the eyes of your heart [the very center and core of your being] may be enlightened [flooded with light by the Holy Spirit], so that you will know and cherish the hope [the divine guarantee, the confident expectation] to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints (God’s people), and [so that you will begin to know] what the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His [active, spiritual] power is in us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of His mighty strength…”
As we become intimate with God, we deepen our knowledge of who God is.
7-DAYS OF DEEPER INTIMACY CHALLENGE
A few years ago, we did a 7-Day Intimacy challenge (a.k.a. 7 day sex challenge) with our Church; encouraging singles and married couples to take seven days and purpose to go deeper in their level of intimacy with God and each other.
The challenge was simple. Over seven days we purposed to spend concentrated time in God’s presence. In addition, the married couples, participated in a 7-day sex challenge simultaneously. Instructions for 7-day sex challenge is available to download in our FREE COMMUNITY LIBRARY or by filling out the form at the end of this post.
5 KEY PRINCIPLES TO DEEPER INTIMACY
If you’re interested in taking the intimacy challenge, here are 5 key principles that will help you over the next seven days:
Make the decision that you want a deeper intimacy with God.
Make the decision that you want a deeper intimacy with your spouse.
Purpose to resolve yourself to do whatever it takes to be grow deeper with God.
In addition, resolve yourself to do whatever it takes to be attentive to your spouse.
Prepare yourself to spend time with God. If necessary, adjust your schedule. That may include, waking-up earlier, or spend less time watching T.V.
You may even need to spend less time on social media, or anything that would distract you. When you give God your undivided attention, you may be surprised how much you’ll receive.
Prepare yourself to spend time with your spouse; includes preparing your body for one another. Preparing your body for each other enhances your time together.
Preparation for your time with God, creates an anticipation to be in His presence and an expectation to receive from Him.
On the other hand, taking the time to prepare your body for one another; creates a spirit of anticipation. And that lays the foundation for the end result!
When you prepare yourself to be in the presence of God, you will experience the freedom to receive all that God has for you.
When you prepare yourself for your spouse, it will create an excitement for what’s to come. As a result, you’ll experience a freedom (liberty) to enjoy one another.
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” ~ 2 Corinthians 3:17 (KJV)
The more intimate you are with God, the more real He becomes in your life.
