By: Dr. Paul Enenche

SERVICE OBJECTIVE: Understanding the dimensions of dedication to God

Dedication refers to a genuine Christian experience
Dedication is a word that is all-encompassing

DIMENSIONS OF DEDICATION:
1. Personal intimacy with God (Ps. 42:1-2; 63:1-2; 2Kings 4:8-9; Ps. 16:11)
Personal intimacy with God refers to the place of communion, prayer, the study of the Word, and worship.
Personal intimacy with God refers to closeness with God that cannot be dissolved by anything on earth
Personal intimacy with God means, nothing gives you pleasure like time with God
Personal intimacy with God refers to a relationship of unquestionable closeness with God

PRODUCTS OF PERSONAL INTIMACY WITH GOD:

1a. Transformation into the likeness of God (Ps. 17:15; 2Cor. 3:18; 2Pet. 1:4; Luke 9:29; Prov. 13:20; Isa. 6:1-5)
i. The more around God you stay, the more like Him you become (Prov. 13:20)
ii. Nearness to the Almighty equals distance from iniquity (Isa. 6:1-5)
iii. Intimacy with God is the doorway to true spirituality and supernaturality

1b. The Possession of Divine Presence (John 1:1-5; Gen. 19:27; 1Kings 17:1)
i. Time in God’s Presence equals time to assimilate the fragrance of His Presence
When you stay around God, there is something about God that lands on you
When you are far from God you are left with your helpless and stranded self; you are left with your humanity; but when you are close to God, you connect Divinity
ii. Time in the Word equals time with God (Ps. 119:130)
iii. Every step in the direction of God attracts multiple steps from the direction of God towards you

1c. The knowledge of God (1Sam. 3:21; Hos. 6:3; Dan. 11:32b)
i. Time spent with God is time spent to know God
ii. Time spent in His Word is time spent to know His will and ways (Dan. 9:2; Ps. 103:7)
iii. Time spent in His Word is time spent to know His works (Acts 1:1)
When you know God’s ways, you become a commander of His wonders

1e. The development of faith (Acts 4:13; Rom. 10:8, 17; Acts 20:32; Heb. 6:12)
Closeness with God imparts a man with faith (Acts 4:13)
You cannot hang around God and continue in doubt, fear and timidity
The man who kneels before God can stand before anything!
Every step away from God is a step into fear and doubt, and to step into doubt is to step into disaster

i. Time spent with God is time spent to access His Voice of direction (Luke 9:29-30)
ii. Time spent in the Word is time spent to locate the Voice of direction (Ps. 29:3; Eph. 5:26)
