Most of us hope that our relationships develop on their own. We want acquaintances to become friends, friends to become best friends, girlfriends to become fiance, wife, mother etc. However, the way we reach those milestones in our relationships is by having goals in place. We can't expect them to happen organically, we have to do our part. Even God created us to have a relationship with Him and He was intentional about creating Eve for Adam. He was intentional when He sent Jesus to die on the cross for you and I. If He was that intentional about His relationship, why aren't we doing the same for His.
