If an old friend we haven’t seen in a while asked about our mother, father, or siblings, most of us have no problem giving them an update. However, if that same friend asked our relationship with God, some of us may get squirmy and uncomfortable. Some of us may even say, “that’s private.” How is asking about our relationship with God any different from asking about our relationship with members of our family? 

We shouldn’t feel uncomfortable talking about our relationship with God. If it’s great, tell them how good God’s been. If it can be better, be honest and let them know. If it’s nonexistent, tell them that too.

The only one who doesn’t want us to talk about God is devil. He’ll do everything in his power to make talking about God weird, uncomfortable, or problematic. In fact, in a corporate setting, people say don’t talk about religion (God) and politics. Where do you think that line of thinking originated?

Let’s normalize speaking about our great and mighty God. He’s the One who helps us, blesses us, and implemented a plan to save us through Jesus. So, why wouldn’t we want to talk about our Heavenly Father? He is our everything.

Isaiah 63:7 I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us– yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses.
