Spiritually, the Bridge is symbolic of communication and union. For example a bridge is symbolic of communication between God and man. It could refer to the connection/communication between heaven and earth.
Besides communicating with God, a bridge can symbolize the following:
- Transition – transporting you from one place to another; it could be a physical place or a change in one or more areas of your life.
- Unity – uniting two pieces of land, or two people or families.
- Conquering Fear – Bridges are a means for overcoming your fears.
- Romance – bridges are romantic places to express your love ❤️. Some people place locks on bridges as a symbol of how their love ❤️ will last forever.
- A break from the past ( Burning Bridges) – putting your past in the past and not looking 👀 back. Only looking 👀 forward to what lies ahead.
There are many other symbolism for bridges which I leave you to discover on your own. I will however, deliberate more regarding the Bridge of communicating with God.
In previous posts we’ve learned that prayer is simply talking to God. Prayer is the bridge of communication between God and man. Do you believe prayer 🙏🏼 is a bridge? Do you believe in prayer, talking to God? I believe prayer is a bridge to communicating with God. Do I pray? Not often enough, even though I believe God answers prayers.
Is the only time we pray when we make a mess of our lives or when we panic? Why is it that in times of difficulty we turn to prayer? Is it because our instincts, our beliefs, lead us to pray in hard times? The Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. Do we put God on hold until we realize we cannot fix our own problems? I know I am not in the habit of praying like I should.
Why do we choose to pray? Has someone suggested to us? Have we learned it from others? We choose to pray to God because we have faith that He will answer. Our faith leads us to choose to communicate with God. Our faith leads us to believe that God can fix any problem or situation we find ourselves in.
” Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”Hebrews 11:1 NIV (New International Version)
Faith is the bridge we build to heaven each time we feel drawn to pray and desire to be closer to Jesus. The more our faith increase, the more we choose to pray and develop a strong bridge of communication between ourselves and God.
Therefore, we have discovered that both prayer and faith are types of bridges that can and will connect us to God if we so choose.
Whether you choose to build a bridge to God through Faith and Prayer is up to you. I believe God holds the answers to any and all problems, therefore, I choose to have faith in God and pray to Him. Faith and prayer are my bridges to a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ. What are your bridges? Do you choose to pray? Build your bridges to a better life.
