Come close to God, and He will come close to you

Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world.” -James‬ ‭4:8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

No matter where you are, God is always there! It’s a statement that you have probably heard all of your life. Maybe it’s your first time hearing it. Whatever it is, believe it or not, it’s true! Perhaps you are asking yourself “if God is always there, then why don’t I feel him?” “I need him, I need to feel loved”, “I need him to speak to me”. Well, I’m here to tell you there’s an easy fix to how you’re feeling. It’s so simple that some people bypass it because they don’t understand or even comprehend the importance of it. Some people don’t even want to hear it. But I’ve been there plenty of times in life. So believe me when I say, all you have to do is pray, trust me! Simple as that! Pray for God to deliver whatever it is you’re going through, worship him in the midst of your trails, believe that in Jesus name it is done. Worship until you have your victory! If you come close to God, He is willing to draw you into a closer relationship with Him.

My prayer for you today is that you may be able to give your worries to God, and draw closer to our Heavenly Father. I pray that you may have an encounter with Jesus and that your life may be transformed and your mind renewed. I pray that in any situation you may trust the Lord our God and walk closely with him, I pray all this in Jesus name, Amen!
