Read James 4

James 4:8 is a powerful verse that says “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” or “ get close to God and he will get close to you!”

Folks, every day we have to make decision to seek God. There’s where the fight starts.  Our flesh or old nature does not want to.

I am just like you.  Many days I start thinking of all the things I need to do or want to do.  It seems like I just don’t have time to read my Bible and pray. I just don’t feel like iton top of that!  It does not say “draw close to me if you feel like it.”  No, I just open up my Bible and start reading or praising Him, and since I got close to Him, He gets close to me. I mean it’s like I am not wanting to, then all of sudden I am excited about God all over again!  All because I decided to get close to Him!  So let’s decide today to read our Bibles, and offer up thanksgiving and praise.  I promise He will draw close to you!!!!
