God has made each one ofus unique- as the Psalmist says, we are ‘fearfully and wonderfully made”. In fact, psychologists say that there are over 18,000 different personality traits, and each person is unique in terms of the combinations of those personality traits.
It is, therefore, not surprising that we don’t all express our relationship with God in the same way. Just as with the five ‘Languages of Love’ that are used to express love for another person in different ways, so there are different ways, or ‘pathways’ to arriving at a close, personal, intimate relationship with God. We will each of us sense his presence in ways that relate to the personality he has given us.
