7 Ways to Take Your Relationship With God to the Next Level

5. Keep an Ear Open For Him

One reason you might not feel close to God is because you aren’t taking any time to listen for Him.

Prayer, while important, is typically Christians talking at God. If you aren’t being quiet and listening for God’s response afterwards, then you can’t continue to build a relationship with Him.

Make quiet time with God a priority. Life is busy and stressful, but God needs us to pause and listen to His whispers. Don’t be so quick to dismiss His voice, either.

God speaks to us in many different ways! Communication from God is unique for each person, and can come in the form of feelings, music, nature, circumstances and more.
