The most important lesson that Jesus gave his followers was this: And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength (Mark 12:30). Your heart is an entrance to your soul and mind. For your relationship to flourish like a flower, you must allow it to grow. You must have an active relationship with God on a daily basis. This means talking to Him, listening to what he says. God will participate in your conversation. He will tell you things about yourself that you didn’t know. He is your Father. The Father knows everything about his child. He is concerned about you every single day. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:11-13). God guarantees His presence.
