THE PERSONALITY OF GOD | HOW TO GET CLOSER TO GOD

Every night I journal my thoughts. During my writing, I heard God’s voice: draw close to Me – you will find peace and rest. God reveals His personality to us in different seasons, but the challenge at times is being able to patiently wait for Him to speak. No matter where you are in your relationship with God, I want this video to encourage you that getting closer to God is what He desires. Your intentions to know God should come from a place of surrendering all the distractions, anxious thoughts and unknown fears; how much do you want of Him? 

When you desire to be in a relationship, it is important to communicate effectively and be clear about what you want from the union; with God, He wants more than a relationship; He wants to be intimate with you. Remind yourself each day that you are making progress! God is not far away from you; He loves and wants the very best for you.

YOUR CHARACTER WILL MAINTAIN YOU

When you have a good character, it shows. Through your mannerism, your lifestyle, your conduct. Everywhere you go, your aura will speak before your mouth does. In our generation today, where it seems that people are striving for financial success and popularity, I have understood the importance of being humble, not weak. There is a difference in humility and pride!

In my previous video, I spoke about the pressures of social media and how it is becoming a ‘source’ of ‘self-affirmation’ or where to feel approved. Social media is a platform and resource; it should not define who you are or cause you to change. Your proof is in the hard work behind the scenes, the tears, the frustrations, the silent rejections that will gradually enable you to get to where you need to be. Through your rejection you can create opportunities, and that is when character is birthed. You can always have a good character when everything works in your favour, but when things seem to not be working, that is where true character is tested.

With a great character, you are not only attracting blessings, but people will notice and will invest in you (the RIGHT people – not those who are going to take from you and run away). It would be really upsetting to have invisible pride and not deal with it at the early stages. No one is expecting you to be successful in a day. There is success and there is ‘SUCCESS’. The success I am talking about and determined to strive for is Godly success. No matter how relevant or popular one is, if God is not in the centre, the success will not last.

You may have the materialistic possessions, but not the wisdom to handle it. You may have knowledge but the character if not thoroughly checked can cause double-mindedness. Don’t let this be you. Be true to yourself. Love where you are, and allow each day to teach you something, because it will. When you have a good character, it attracts blessings that you did not have to work hard for; it also brings those above you to understand your goals, dreams and visions and can partner with you, just because of your character.

Do not be deceived, being humble does not mean allowing anyone to take you for granted. You can have a kind heart and be a firm individual at the same time. You have every right to protect your heart (Proverbs 4:23). Be true to yourself, and if you sincerely have an issue in dealing with insecurities, speak to a trusted friend before it tarnishes the character.

Remember this: character and beauty works hand in hand, and God will use people to help in your time of need. Do not stop being you because support isn’t coming or compromise your values. You will always get what you desire when you least expect it. Be open to change, and above all maintain your character. It will truly get you further than where you are now.

With love,
