Draw Near

James 4:8Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Are you experiencing a time of trouble in your life right now?  Do you feel as though you are in the midst of a burning, fiery furnace?  Many situations tend to make us feel weak and helpless.  Take courage in the Word of God given in James 4:8.  When troubles, trials and various temptations come your way, throw yourself at the feet of Jesus.  Let Him embrace you in His arms.  He waits for you to draw near to  Him.  I Peter 5:7 “…casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”  Today, allow Christ Jesus to take your burdens.  We also have the helper and comforter sent from heaven, John 14:26But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”

Take some time today to thank and praise God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit for what they have done and will do.  Allow God to guide you in the paths which He has prepared for you since the foundation of the world.

  1. In these crazy days we’re living in we certainly do need to focus on the Lord, His Word, and be trusting that He will bring us through to victory!

  2. Because we are always in need of God’s love, presence, healing, forgiveness–you name it–we definitely have to stay close to Him. It is far too easy to drift away further and further and we wonder why things are so tough or why Gid seems so far or deaf to our cries. But really it is always us who fall away–never Him! Then we need to take the steps to get back to Him and be close once again. He is ever faithful and always waiting. Like with the prodigal son, He runs to us with open arms!!
