James 4:8 "Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded."

 

In the New Testament there are many stories of those who wanted and needed to draw near to Jesus. Zacchaeus was so eager that he ran ahead and climbed a tree just so he could see Jesus. The woman with the issue of blood believed if she could just touch the hem of his garment she would be healed. So their proximity was physical and of course personal and spiritual...how do we draw near to the living Savior today? Through prayer, reading of Holy Scripture, quietly listening, giving thanks and praise and seeking the daily presence of the Holy Spirit.

 

Good morning Father,

 Thank you for Your daily presence offered in various ways! Help us seek to be ever closer to You as we read your Word allowing it to be alive for us, in us, and through us. Help us to recognize the power and presence of the Holy Spirit and give us ears to hear and recognize Your voice and be obedient to you in all things.

 

In the Grip of God's Amazing Grace!

John

The only qualification I would add to drawing near to God, is, of course, humility.

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;  a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.
(Psalm 51:17 ESV)

But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

(James 4:6 ESV)
