Relating to God – 4 – Becoming Secure

God has built into every human brain the capacity and the desire for relationship. As we’ve discussed earlier in this series, that capacity begins with a relationship with parents and that expands out to encompass every other kind of human relationship. And, as we grow from children to adults, that capacity extends out even further to God as well. So how we experience early relationship has a lot to do with how we relate to God later.
So the question is, “Are you secure in your relationship with God?” Is it easy to have faith? Do you trust that God is going to take care of you? These are the things we learned as infants, if we had good parents. And they get transferred to God later. But what can be done to become more secure in our relationship with God? You know, there’s never been a perfect parent, so there’s never been a human that’s been perfectly secure. So what can be done to increase the security of our relationship with God?
