Draw nearer to God
Text: James 4:8
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
To enjoy on earth, there is need for a great insight into Kingdom matters. No one who operates outside of the Kingdom is entitled to kingdom benefits because the kingdom is enclosed to prevent the filthy and abominable from coming to partake unless they first be purified. But the one who resides in Heaven as King thereof is a kind and loving God. He gives an invitation to everyone that cares to come to His rest no matter how heavily laddened you are. He has even promised to draw unto you if you take the first step. This is interesting in that the Bible describes Him as one who sits in heaven and makes the earth His footstool: meaning the distance between His stool and the earth is the distance between his knee and the sole of his feet. That means He’s got a super reach. So, whenever you draw near to Him, in practical terms, He takes you over at once. When God takes you over, darkness and all its attendant issues disappear because God glows as He is Light. That situation mocking your wellness or existence can disappear if you will accept God’s invite to draw nigh. You know that area(s) where you have been distant from Him. Why don’t you make amends today and see the beauty of His magnificent presence? He loves you and cherishes your fellowship. Draw near unto Him now!!!
Lord, I desire more of you. Forgive me for straying away. Draw me to yourself even now and let the light of your countenance overshadow me henceforth in Jesus name.
