Christ Related To God

Mark 14:32 (NKJV)
Then they came to a place which was named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, “Sit here while I pray.”

Christ Related To God
During His life on earth, Jesus modeled a proper relationship to God the Father. He never usurps His authority or embarks on tasks independently. We also see that He keeps a consistent prayerful communication with God, no matter the circumstances.

This relationship is central to everything Jesus does, which only makes logical sense.

As we previously discussed, our capabilities are finite so for us it doesn’t only make sense to keep our communication with God open and constant, it is absolutely essential. When a soldier is in the field, he needs to communicate with his superior in order to receive any change in his orders. Likewise we need to communicate consistently with our Superior to know what His desires are for us. If we cease this communication with God, we cut off our source of power as well as our source of direction.

Ask the Lord to refill and recharge your spirit. Praise Him for His goodness and thank Him for the ways your life has been blessed. Ask for Him to guide you daily.

Ask Yourself
Are you consistent in your prayer life? Do you ask God for guidance as you make decisions throughout the day or do you tend to act independently?

Take Action
As you wake up, before you start your day, take a few minutes to talk with God. Thank Him for life and for blessing you with salvation prior to making any requests. Ask Him to guide you throughout the day. As you take on the day, say quick prayers to God for guidance whenever you are faced with important decisions.
