If you want to get to know someone then the only way that is going to happen is to spend time with them. There is no method that you can follow or plan of action that will help you to know every person you come in contact with because every person is different.
My oldest son loves to play games. He would spend hours with me and his dad just playing chess or cribbage if he was allowed.
My middle son loves to share reading time. He wants to curl up next to his mom and dad and read to us or have us read to him.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg. I have friends that like to spend time together playing online video games, watching football, and hunting. Everyone I know has something unique about them and how they want to share their lives.
It’s easy to see it with people, but for some reason we don’t want it to be that way with God. It would be easier if there was a 10 step program that would bring us into a right relationship with God, but there isn’t. If someone tells you that they know the process to hear from God or to know His will then it is either a trick or a delusion.
The only way to know God and His will is to spend time with him – consistently! That means that everyday should include time in His word and alone talking with Him. It has to be the most important act of the day because without Him nothing is possible.
John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man abides in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit. Apart from me, you can do nothing.”
