Our praise and worship of God draws us into greater intimacy with him. God calls us to quiet ourselves to seek him in a deeper way. He asks us to release our control and let him take the lead so we can discover what is real, stable and foundational.
In John Ortberg’s book God Is Closer Than You Think, he describes seven spiritual pathways to God. Each of us finds intimacy with God in a different way. In which pathway(s) do you see yourself?
Intellectual pathway: Do you hear God best when you read, engage in deep thought and conversation, sit under sound teaching or study Scripture?
Relational pathway: Do you sense God’s presence most when you are involved in significant relationships?
Serving pathway: Are you aware of God most when you help others?
Worship pathway: Do you experience the reality of God as you praise and adore our Lord?
Activist pathway: Do you have a passion to get involved in every good cause? Do you jump in and work with zeal to fix problems for God’s glory?
Contemplative pathway: Do you sense God most in the silence when all the distractions and noise of life are removed?
Creation pathway: Are you revitalized and energized by experiencing God’s creation?
No matter your preferred pathway, I encourage you to use it to commune with God. He has created each of us uniquely in his image and calls all of us daily to a path of intimacy with him.
