But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.
—Psalm 73:28 KJV
What do you think of when you hear the word associated?
This word means to be tightly knit together and completely dependent. God desires for you to draw near to Him—to be closely associated with His Spirit. How does this happen? Through an investment of quality time. Your understanding of the Holy Spirit will mature as your devote yourself to time in His presence.
The Lord longs to have the deepest level of friendship with you. This is the God whose knowledge, wisdom, and understanding are unfathomable—and He yearns to be known by you. Let nothing keep you from fully grasping this truth. Draw near to God. Share your deepest thoughts, secrets, and desires with the One who loves you endlessly. He will, in turn, reveal Himself to you!
