Verse of the Day: James 4:8
Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.
Draw near to God, come to Him by faith, with true repentance and obedience, leaving your sins behind you. Study the Word of God to learn who He really is. Come to the foot of the throne and seek His presence with a sincere heart through prayer, fasting, praise and worship for He is truly worthy. God loved you first and is waiting for you to take the next step by inviting Him into every part of your life. He loves you more than you can ever imagine and when you draw near to Him, He draws near to you by granting you His gracious presence, by communicating His love to you, by applying the blessings of His grace, by helping you in times of need and distress and by protecting you from you enemies. (John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible) Come to God and receive His love, grace, mercy, peace and forgiveness.
Heavenly Father, more than anything I want to draw closer to You. I give You my heart and invite You into every part of my life. Be with me Lord, guide me and help me to be more like You. I need more of You, Lord. Amen.
