How to fall in love with God is a topic either not many have thought of or many have openly discussed. How do you fall in love with God? Is there such a thing? The good news is, it is a thing! There are many ways on how to fall in love with God and I pray these 7 suggestions will be just the beginning on how to experience God personally.

Have you ever looked at someone at your church with misdirected jealousy because of his or her relationship with God? Did you ever wonder why you don’t have the same thing?

I remember sitting at church or a bible study and witness many people having this amazing experience with God that I didn’t have yet.

It made me wonder if it was fake or maybe I wasn’t good enough to have the same thing.

Sometimes I even remember secretly making fun of “those people” who would be crying or “overly” praising God. Have you ever felt like this? However, as I continued to witness this throughout my walk I noticed  I wanted to know how to fall in love with God too.

The change came for me when I really experienced the POWER of God. I was out bonding with two teens when demons presented themselves in one of them (see the story in Matt. 12:22-32). I was in total shock but I did recognize something had to be done. Praise God, the other teen had a father who is a Pastor because I had no idea what to do.

We took her back to her house and he was able to extract them through prayer, the work of the Holy Spirit, and the Name of Jesus Christ. It was the first time I ever spoke in tongues and witnessed the spiritual battle we are truly in (see Acts 2:1-4). At that moment I understood why “those people” did what they did.

What could this possibly do with falling in love with God? How is all of this connected?

Here is how all of this connects:

There was a REAL power in the Name of Jesus Christ I experienced.

The experience was so amazing and I was in awe of Him! I had to know more.

Now, this may seem like such a strange story to tell when it comes to falling in love with God but the key word we are looking for is “know”.

Falling in love with God starts with knowing who He is. Click To Tweet

We are a soul seeking a real experience with love. He is that love.

Therefore, in order to truly experience love we must know “it” meaning know Him who is love. Phew! So how do we get to know Him? Here are some ways on how to love God more deeply to help set a foundation of understanding “those people” and joining them in falling in love with Jesus Christ.

7 Ways on How to Fall in Love with God

1) Learn about Him-

Some people may find the bible overwhelming or boring but reading the bible is like reading someone’s diary. That someone is God.

How to Fall in Love with God: 7 Ways on How to Love God More Deeply christianyouthmagazine.com #christianteens #christianteenblogs #christianteendating #christianbloggers #christiansingles #christianyoutuberHe is telling you the history of His love and what was done so He can spend eternity with you.

I mean think about it, if you found your crush’s diary would you read it? Most of us would say yes because it contains their thoughts, wants, and secrets. The bible holds that and so much more.

It has the power to transform you.

Why? Because the more you learn about God, the more you will know how to fall in love with God.

It’s so easy to judge someone when we don’t know them. What a beautiful God to leave us a 66 book love letter so we can know Him better.

His knowledge is power. (see 2 Tim. 3:16-17, Psalm 119:105, Rom. 15:4)

2) Spend time together-

In any relationship romantic or not, time has to be put in.

“Seek the Lord and his strength; seek his presence continually!” (1 Chron. 16:11)

I remember people saying they “knew” me when I had no idea who they were. I might’ve had a class with them or maybe I’ve seen them in the hallway but I didn’t feel like they knew me.

How many of us get upset when that happens?

Our response is usually, “They don’t know me!” Right? It takes quality time to know someone. Lots of memories and experiences. It’s the same with God. To truly know someone is to spend time with them, know them, know their life, and know their heart. (see Isa. 53:1-12)

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18)

Mornings are a great to spend time with Him. Click here to read more about how to do that.

3) Keep Thinking/Talking about Him-How to Fall in Love with God Image 2 #christianblogger #christianblog #christianyouth #christiandevotional #christiansingles

Whether it’s your best friend, someone special, or that beloved family member, we usually think about and talk about them often. We’ll recall memories and experiences we had with these people.

When you start spending more and more time with God the same thing happens.

Scripture will start coming to mind easily as you constantly read scripture, you’ll remember those times God was personal with you, times He took you out of your misery, you’ll wonder how you can get to know Him better, and you’ll want to spend more time with Him.

Also, evangelizing will become easier because it’s just becomes who you are rather than something you should do. You can’t help but talk about Him. It’s the overflow.

If you feel far from Him, click here to find out maybe why.

4) Talk to Him-

Prayer is more than a ritual or something you “have” to do. It’s simply talking to God.

How much do we learn from people we have constant communication with? How much deeper and more meaningful are our relationships when are real and just talk?

“And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words” (Matt. 6:7).

Talk like you would normally talk to someone you love. Also, sometimes I’m too worried about picking the “perfect” time or the “perfect” place just so I can pray. Now I can pray whenever, wherever I want. This is your freedom too. (see John 10:27-28)

5) Recognize His voice-

He DOES respond in the way HE responds.

He can talk to you either through dreams, other people, an audible voice, sermons, or whichever way He talks to you. Another way that is tangible, is through His Word.

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ” (Rom. 10:17).

God also speaks in His very creation, His word, through His prophets (which is still relevant today), in the little details in your life that make you smile, in the still small voice, and through the trials. Listen for Him..

Open your ears and allow your heart and mind to be receptive. It’ll work wonders! (Isa. 55:8-9, 1 Kings 19:11-12)

6) Sing to Him-

When we love something, we can’t help but sing to it and about it. Even if you’re not necessarily gifted. Moms sing to babies, men sing to women, women sing to men, and everywhere you look there is a song being sung.

“I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have being.” (Psalm 104:33)

By singing to the Lord, we are expressing our love to Him. He also sings to us!

“The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” (Zeph. 3:17)

How to Fall in Love with God #christianblogger #christianblog #christianyouth #christiandevotional #christiansinglesThis is one of my favorite scriptures because it shows what a loving Father He is. Even if you never had anyone sing to you, you can guarantee the Lord has sung over you.

7) Defend Him-

In any great love story, there is one defending the love of the other. Why can’t it be like that for the Lord? So many people want to destroy the love and relationship between the created and the Creator. Will you defend Him?

“But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect,” (1 Peter 3:15)

When you start learning about Him, spending time with Him, falling in love with your God, this will become easier and easier where it won’t even be a thought but a knee jerk reaction. He is worth defending!

Make it a point in your life to learn how to fall in love with God. There is NOTHING like it. I remember the day I became “that person” in church who shouted to God for how GREAT He is, clapping, crying, dancing, and the best part is…I didn’t care who was watching!

There is no turning back for me and that’s okay! When that happens to you, a smile will start to play across your face because you will realize you became just like “them”.

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” (Deut. 6:5)

Baskets of Blessings!

    Hi Nina, I love that teachings about falling in love with Jesus. To many people both men and women and also teenagers fall in love and get heart broken. I was one such individual. After failing in finding love several times including two marriages, I realize that Christ is the only true love a person can have and not be disappointed. I hope that just I learned my lesson that others will also. Thank You.

    Dear sister Nina,
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful message. I will be sharing this article with my believer friends.
    I would like to make a suggestion about your share button on the sidebar. I need to make the font larger so that I can see what is being written and the icons end up overlapping the text that you wrote.
    I was able to push them back with the bottom arrow, but each time I scrolled down a bit further to read more, the social sharing icons would pop back to my sidebar. It made it very hard for me to keep taking them out of the way to read. Is there any way that you could add the sharing button to the top and end of your post but not on the sidebar?
    It’s just a suggestion because it would make it so much easier for us to read your articles. Thank you for your beautiful article.
    Blessings to you,
    Eren Mckay

    Thanks very much daughter of Zion. This is powerful. Every time I experience the visible presence of God, it is usually preceeded with beautiful singing. I remember one vividly was the hymn about Christians seek not yet repose but instead of watch and pray, the Lord sang, do not despair. God does sing to us to encourage, to warn and to also praise is. What a great comforter. Thank you Jesus. Please help me to love you more
