Once you have spent the time learning how the Godhead speaks and understanding His language then you need to spend time learning you own language with the Godhead. I use the term Godhead for a reason. I use it often and to bring clarity on why is because when you grow in relationship with the Godhead, which is Father, Son and Holy Spirit, you will find that they are one, but their language and the way they interact with us is different. This takes time to grow in and is something to be enjoyed throughout life so do not be in a hurry to feel like you need to understand everything in the moment, because that will not happen.
I really believe that it is important to learn God’s language first before focusing our own language with God. For the most part if we pay attention this will happen at the same time as long as we keep our eyes focused on the Lord. This will help us learn how to grow deeper in relationship as we cultivate our personal communication with God. This starts with spending time with the Godhead. It is nearly impossible to grow in our walk without spending time with God. Spending time with God looks different for everyone and only you and God can determine if the time you spend is of any quality that will lead to growth.
The joy of learning your own language with God is that there is no other person on this earth who will have your language. This is why we have a personal God who interacts with each one of us in a different way. Yes, when learning God’s language you will find that He loves to speak in picture form and when reading the Bible you will understand that most of the meanings for these pictures are the same for just about everyone. What makes it personal is how He presents His language to us. If you really stop and pay attention you will find that the way God presents to us fits right into our own language.
We are all wired very different so do not look to another around you to understand your own language with God as this will only bring frustration, because you will only strive to touch something that you are not wired to touch. This is why it is so important to encounter God one-on-one in your own personal space. You will find that God will meet you where you are now, not where you might feel you should be. I am a picture person and very hands on, which is also very true with my language with God. He speaks to me mostly in vision and allows me to walk in the Spiritual realm so that I can touch that space. I did not start here; it has taken time to get to this place, which is true in any relationship. The point I am making here is that you need to work on your own language with God on where you are at now, not on where you want to be. Where you want to be will come, but only if you focus on where you are now.
