THE ROAD TO DEEPER RELATIONSHIPS

“I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge— that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

Ephesians 3:17–19

God desires to give you hope as you face life challenges, problems and difficult trials.  The good news for us, God specializes in redemption and transformation. He takes that which was lost and restores it. He takes that which was dead and gives it life. He takes that which had no hope and rewrites its story. This is our God!  As you pray today, ask God boldly to transform the thing inside you that you want to see changed forever!  

The truth is, we can all learn skills to better help those in need.  Each of the Women of Faith Resources, Classes, Shows, Quick Study Guides, E-Books and Books present God’s heart on the respective life challenges, while revealing ways to walk in spiritual victory.  With a simple step-by-step and easy-to-understand process.

The road to intimacy contains many potholes, roadblocks, and detours. We all want close, intimate relationships, but it’s a struggle to take off your mask, overcome your fears, and show people the real you. The Keys for Living resources show you how to break down the barriers that block intimacy and how to develop trust, vulnerability, and transparency in your relationships with God and others. Discover God’s unconditional love for you and how it can transform your life and relationships forever!

Driving through a foreign country, especially when you have to depend on strange highway mar kings, is confusing and often quite fearful. This is especially true when the road signs are written in unfamiliar language. Similarly, for many travelers, the road to intimacy is just as foreign … th reatening and intimidating territory! Nevertheless, it is the only route on which you eventually learn the real “language of love.” 

“The Lord your God.… [takes] great delight in you; in his love he wi ll no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Zephaniah 3:17

Everything in our life is a reflection of our relationship with God. If we fear Him, secretly lack t rust in Him or attempt to hide the truth about ourselves from Him, our other relationships will also lack the same trust and vulnerability that is needed to develop genuine love.… 

Insight into Intimacy 

  • The word intimacy comes from the Latin word intimus, which means “innermost.”
  • Intimacy is a close relationship between two people who both feel secure enough to share their innermost feelings (trust).
  • Intimacy in a relationship encourages emotional growth and spiritual maturity. 
    • You feel accepted and forgiven in spite of past failures. 
    • You grow in inner confidence, peace, and satisfaction. 
    • You see the relationship as a gift of God’s love.

“Let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”  

1 John 4:7–8

Jesus came to show us the Father. He came to reveal God’s heart, showing us the Father’s deep desire to have an intimate relationship of oneness with us. This kind of intimacy reflects the intimacy between the Father and the Son.

Before Jesus’ betrayal and death, He prayed for His followers—for you. His prayer reveals the kind of close intimacy God desires that we have with Him and with one another.

“20 My prayer is . . .

21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.  May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—

23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity.

Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. . . 

26 I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

John 17:20–23, 26
