Move Closer

"Come near to God and He will come near to you" (Jas.4:8).

There are some people out there that are gregarious, and some who are aloof. More than likely, most are somewhere in between. It is certainly easier to establish a rapport with the gregarious and in betweens. No matter how hard we may try, reaching out to those who are aloof to others is much more difficult. God on the other hand, lays this simplistic statement on us through the pen of James in today's verse. Come near to God and He will come near to you. No matter what our personality traits might be, we cannot afford to be aloof about this statement. Our God wants us to draw near to Him! Are we doing this? Lets bear this in mind.... A close relationship is dependent upon good communication. Are you listening? Can you hear me now? One of the ways to draw closer to the Lord is through the faithful reading and meditating on His Word. I hope that these morning devotionals might whet your appetite each day to draw closer to God through His Word. Writing them certainly helps me.... If we are not getting closer through His Word, I am afraid that we might be distancing ourselves instead. Have you prayed yet today? Maybe after you read this, you might want to spend a moment or two with the Lord in prayer. Perhaps it might be one of those flare prayers, and if it is, make a promise to God that you will spend more time with Him later. Lets face it... As with all things that we get good at, practice and repetition make us better....Lets make sure that our degree of prayerfulness and Bible reading/meditation increase. If we want God to draw close to us, we have to keep our part of the deal. Come near to God and He will come near to you. We can have a wonderful confidence that the Lord will keep His part.... Will we?

Have a great start to your week.... Begin it with a RAK or two.... Love mark Phil.4:11
