Wondering if your relationship with God is as intimate as it can be? Whether you feel incredibly close to Him or think there might be something more, this article will reveal three powerful truths that will deepen your understanding and experience of your relationship with God.  

These insights are not just comforting thoughts—they’re transformative revelations that will ignite a newfound passion in your faith. Stick with me through all three points, and I promise, you will never see your relationship with God the same way again.

Profound Truth #1: Your Unbroken Union with God

Imagine for a moment the most perfect, unshakable relationship you can think of. You know, kinda like the relationship between a parent and their newborn baby—pure, unbreakable, and overflowing with love. Now, let’s take that image and elevate it to the divine level. This is exactly the kind of relationship you have with God through Christ. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is the untold truth about your relationship with God!

Think about the Godhead—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are the ultimate family, perfectly united in love and joy. There’s no worry, no doubt, no unrest among them. Ever. They are one. And here’s the jaw-dropping part: You are part of this divine family. 1 Corinthians 6:17 says, “But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.” Yep, that means you!

Have you ever wondered if Jesus worries about His relationship with the Father? Does He ever think, “Oh no, did I do something to mess this up?” Of course not! Jesus lives in constant, unwavering unity with His Father. And guess what? So do you. “As He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

This isn’t just a nice thought to keep in your back pocket; it’s a powerful reality. You’ve been made one with Christ. That means all the attributes of Jesus’ relationship with the Father are true for you too. No hindrance, no distance, no break—just pure, unbroken connection.

Picture this: Jesus standing before the Father, completely embraced, completely loved, and completely enjoyed, without a single barrier between them. Now, see yourself standing in the exact same place. Because you are! “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

Think about it: Jesus never experiences a hindrance in His relationship with the Father. So neither do you. Jesus never feels distance from God. So neither should you. This divine union isn’t about what you do or don’t do; it’s about who you are in Christ.

Let’s get real. Sometimes you might feel like you’re a thousand miles away from God. Maybe you messed up, maybe you feel unworthy. But those feelings are just that—feelings. The truth? You are securely nestled in the center of God’s heart. “For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).

Imagine a GPS. Even if it says you’re off course, it’s constantly recalculating, guiding you back to the right path. Similarly, no matter where you find yourself emotionally, your spiritual GPS—God’s unwavering love within you—keeps you in perfect connection with Him, effortlessly.

Here’s the kicker, the WOW moment: Just as Jesus never backslides or faces separation from God, that never happens to you either. It’s not about striving or achieving; it’s about resting in the truth of your unbroken union with Him. So next time doubt creeps in, laugh in its face. You’re one with Christ, and that’s unchangeable.

Profound Truth #2: Experiencing Divine Peace and Confidence

Now that we’ve uncovered the unshakable, unbreakable, totally secure union you have with God, let’s dive into what that means for your everyday life. Imagine walking through life with a sense of peace and confidence so profound, it’s as if you’re walking on a cloud. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. This is your reality in Christ.

Let’s get one thing straight: Your peace and confidence don’t come from human experiences or your fluctuating emotions. They’re anchored in the unchanging spiritual truth of your relationship with God. 

Picture a lighthouse standing firm against the crashing waves. No matter how fierce the storm, the lighthouse remains unmoved, guiding ships to safety. That’s kinda like you—anchored in the truth, immovable despite the chaos around you.

So, why can you strut through life with your head held high, no matter what? Here are ten powerful reasons that mirror Jesus’ own unbroken relationship with the Father:

1. No Hindrance: Just as Jesus never has any barriers in His relationship with the Father, you have none either. “But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17).

2. No Problems: Jesus never faces any problems with God, and neither do you. All your issues have been nailed to the cross.

3. No Distance: There’s no distance between Jesus and the Father, and the same goes for you. “For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3).

4. Total Right Standing: Jesus is perfectly righteous before the Father, and so are you. “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21).

5. No Breaks: Jesus’ relationship with the Father never breaks, and yours won’t either. It’s rock-solid.

6. No Separation: There’s no separation between Jesus and the Father, and there’s none between you and God. “As He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).

7. No Backsliding: Jesus never backslides, and neither do you. Your position in God is secure.

8. No Barriers: Just as there are no barriers for Jesus, there are none for you. You have direct access to God’s throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16) .

9. Unbroken Fellowship: Jesus enjoys unbroken fellowship with the Father, and you share in that same unbroken fellowship. “I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity” (John 17:23).

10. Perfect Relationship: Jesus has a perfect relationship with the Father, and you do too. It’s flawless, unblemished, and everlasting.

Close your eyes and picture this: You’re standing in a vast, serene meadow, the sun shining warmly on your face. There’s no fear, no anxiety—just pure, unadulterated peace. This is your everyday reality in Christ. When you feel the waves of life crashing around you, remember that you’re anchored in this meadow of peace, your relationship with God unshakeable.

Let’s be real. Life throws curveballs. Sometimes you feel like you’re a million miles away from God. But here’s the truth bomb: Feelings are just feelings. The reality is that you’re nestled in the heart of the Godhead, as close to God as Jesus is. Your peace and confidence come from this eternal truth, not from your ever-changing circumstances.

Here’s the kicker: Just as Jesus walks in unwavering peace and confidence, so do you. It’s not about striving or earning; it’s about resting in the truth of who you are in Christ. So next time anxiety knocks on your door, smile and let it know you’re anchored in divine peace.

Profound Truth #3: Beyond Human Experience

Let’s talk about something we’ve all felt at some point—the feeling of being distant from God. You know, those moments when you feel like you’re a million miles away from Him, wondering if He’s even there. But here’s the kicker: those feelings, as real as they seem, are not the truth. They’re like shadows—there but not substantial. The reality? You are always securely nestled in the heart of the Godhead. That’s the profound truth beyond our human experience.

Imagine you’re in a thick fog, barely able to see your hand in front of you. The fog makes everything look distorted, but it doesn’t change what’s actually there. It’s kinda like how our feelings can distort our perception of God’s presence. But just because you feel lost doesn’t mean you are. The truth is, you’re always at the center of God’s heart.

Paul puts it beautifully in Romans 1:7: “To all who are loved by God and called to be his holy people.” You are called a saint, holy and dearly loved. This isn’t a temporary status that fluctuates with your mood. It’s an eternal truth anchored in God’s unwavering love.

Think of it this way: Even when you feel like you’re “eating with the pigs,” like the prodigal son, the Father sees you differently. He sees you as He sees Jesus—perfect, holy, and righteous. “Put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24). You have a sinless nature because of your union with Christ. It’s not about striving to become holy; it’s about recognizing you already are.

Close your eyes for a moment. Picture yourself standing in the middle of the Godhead—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—surrounded by their love and light. No matter how far you feel you’ve strayed, this is where you truly are. “For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:3). You are never lost, never distant; you are always at home in God’s heart.

Here’s the kicker: No matter how you feel, the truth remains that you are in an unbroken relationship with God. Just like Jesus, who never experiences separation from the Father, you too never experience true separation. It’s not about what you do or don’t do; it’s about who you are in Christ.
