Should we pray. YES! But did you know that God wants us to talk to him at random during our day too? He desires to fellowship with you anytime. I have found that the random times I just talk to God while doing something in daily life was some of the most meaningful time spent with God. Yes we should have times to settle our selves quietly and listen & talk to God, but he loves the random in the business of your day too. He desires fellowship with you daily
not just at prayer times.
God loves to be invited to the things in your life. Like sometimes I will be driving and say God come along on this drive with me I desire your company! Or God I am going shopping come with me! God created us for fellowship. Some have asked me before what is my purpose in life? At a time in my life I also wondered that. And I have heard so many others say it too. But I realized..... we all have purpose but before that purpose comes into play God first desires your main purpose ( & throughout your whole life) and that is to fellowship with him. We all share the same foundational purpose in life and that's to seek God and draw near to him in fellowship.
In 1 John 4:19 We love because He first loved us.
You see God is LOVE. We love because he loved us first. He desire relationship! Imagine if your kids only came to you to ask you for things but never really spent time with you or hung out with you simply for fun? That would hurt! It's those little moments with you God loves cherishes as you do. He loves it all but he loves those too. You are his child no matter your age & he delights in you. God has feelings too. Of course he does, he is LOVE itself! So why do we often never stop to consider God's feelings & invite him to be with you in things. Like, God come with me enjoy this craft, this walk, this doughnut, this car ride, this shopping trip, this gardening, this dish washing time, this cleaning, this work today. What ever it is think to remember to invite God along too and acknowledge his feelings for he so desires your fellowship & relationship nurturing anytime & anywhere.
James 4: 8 Draw near to God and he will come near to you.
