Genuine Relationships Do Exist!
Intimacy in genuine relationships with God and people is the antidote for aloneness. Unconditional love was God’s plan all along when He created you. It can and should be experienced in every dimension of our being – spirit, soul, and body in a genuine, continual way, never dependent on feeling or circumstances. Don’t be willing to settle for imposters such as sexual intimacy or emotional, conditional bonding.
You may have been betrayed by someone you once trusted, but the LORD wants to heal your pain through an understanding of His personal love for you.
YAD (Hebrew)– to know deeply. This word is used in Psalm 139:1-4 to express God’s deep personal awareness and understanding of us. He knew us from our mother’s womb and is acquainted with our every thought, emotion and motivation. And, He still loves us!
“O Lord, You have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar; You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord.” Psalm 139:1-4
SOD (Hebrew) – refers to revelation or disclosure of one to another. It is used in Proverbs 3:32 which states, the Lord “takes the upright into His confidence.” God chooses to disclose Himself to us in a personal, valuable way. He wants you to know Him; He longs to be a part of your life.
SAKAN (Hebrew) speaks of living together, to make a home together. God wants to dwell in your heart and to be the foundation for your home. This beneficial or caring involvement is the hallmark of a genuine relationship. “ A Message from the high and towering God, who lives in Eternity, whose name is Holy: “I live in the high and holy places, but also with the low-spirited, the spirit-crushed, And what I do is put new spirit in them, get them up and on their feet again.” Isaiah 57:15 (The Message)
You cannot escape the desert if you do not drink of the living water. Genesis 21:14-20
