Come Closer

Rose close


Come close to God and He will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners. Clean up your hearts, you who want to follow the sinful ways of the world and God at the same time. James 4:8 NLV


The Lord desires to have a close walk with His children. Any successful relationship needs nurturing and attention. We want our relationship with the Lord to be our top priority. This relationship provides the river of fulfillment for our best life. When we walk with the Lord closely, we can hear and follow His leading. The Holy Spirit can guide us into our purpose with strong and confident steps that move us forward. We all desire the blessings of peace, joy, happiness, health and contentment. They represent the same blessings that the Lord wants to provide for us. He will illuminate the path into His peace and His joy and His prosperity if we are seeking and listening for His guidance. The Holy Spirit in us can provide the answers we are seeking. If we are willing and adhere to what the Lord is saying, we can make the internal changes in our thinking and our ways that align to His will for our lives. We should seek to be closer to Him each day.
So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet. James 7-10 MSG
