For intro, see #1 in this series.
If God is not just our Creator or our King or our Lord but, in addition to all these things, our loving, affectionate Father, it follows that we have access to him at all times. We don't have to go through a human intermediary, like a priest. We don't have to do something dramatic to gain a hearing. We don't have to fear bothering him too often or too much. The Creator of the universe loves us. We can approach him any at time. And the book he inspired encourages us to do just that! 'Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you' (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). God actually wants us to bother him continuously - this is his 'will' for us! - 'always', 'without ceasing' and 'in all circumstances'!
How might relating to God much more frequently impact us?
How might it change our struggles with sin if the first thing we did when tempted was to talk to God about what we're feeling with complete and absolute honesty? How much more aware of God's goodness might we be if the first thing we did when anything brought us joy was say 'thank you'? How much more ready might we be to hear God's word on Sunday if we have been relating personally to him throughout the week?
I suspect that, for many of us, this might indeed make a real difference. So let's be deliberate (#4) about relating personally to God more frequently, as a part of life. Not forgetting to do so responsively (#3), honestly (#2) and, above all, gladly (#1), as we would relate to a loving, affectionate Father. In Christ, that's exactly what he is.
'Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need' (Hebrews 4:16).
