Communion–Friendship and Fellowship with our Creator

The bedrock of communion can be defined as friendship and fellowship with God. At its core, communion includes an ease of conversation like that of old friends who know each other well.

To authentically reflect the heart of God through our creative works, we must come to know His heart in greater measure.

This can be done through the simple yet profound choice to daily commune with God–And because He is a good, good Father, God is always faithful to move towards a heart that is intentional to move towards His. The truth of this promise can be seen throughout Scripture.

I will show My love to those who passionately love Me! For they will search and search continually until they find Me! (Proverbs 8:17 TPT).

Through His prophet Jeremiah, God also says the following:

Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:12-13 NASB).

These Scriptures are just a few of many that resonate with the beautiful melody of communion given to those who wholeheartedly seek the heart of God. From the moment He formed Adam from the dust, the eternal desire for communion with mankind resounded within the heart of God. Thus, when we set our hearts to move towards the heart of our Creator, He in turn is faithful to reveal more and more of His heart to us in the process.

God always desires communion with us, but at the same time, we must choose to seek the company of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as we would a close and treasured friend. Then we must be purposeful to continually seek Their company. In response, God chooses to share the revelations of His heart with those who choose to deeply commune with Him - those He knows He can trust like a well-known friend.

Then Moses said to Him, If Your Presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here(Exodus 33:15 NIV).

Inside the Tent of Meeting, the Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend... (Exodus 33:11 NLT).

Moses sought the Presence of God, and once he had experienced such deep fellowship and communion with God, he refused to move on without it. Moses lived with intention; he made it his purpose to be in the Presence of God and to know the Presence of God. Particularly, he spent purposeful time in the Tent of Meeting, daily exposing Himself to God’s Presence—and God responded by speaking to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend.

Moses knew the heart of God because he communed with God. Interestingly, Moses lived well before the infilling of the Holy Spirit, as recorded in the Book of Acts (see Acts 1:8; 2:1-4 NLT). Rather, Moses lived in a time when the Spirit of God simply rested upon chosen individuals. But today, as blood-bought sons and daughters of God, who have the Holy Spirit living within us, it is our inheritance to not only know the heart of God and commune in His Presence as Moses did, but also to hear and actively participate in the conversations between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

It is our communion—our conversations with God—that become the heartbeat of our creative process.

This deeper communion with our Creator champions our hearts, strengthening us to continue in the creative voyage, emboldening us to live a creative lifestyle in Jesus. “In essence, it’s our communion with God that will serve to resource our hearts with unwavering encouragement, unlimited inspiration, and supernatural creative wisdom…
