TOPIC: Draw Closer to Your God
DATE: SATURDAY, 7TH NOVEMBER 2015
“When you draw close to God, God will draw close to you...”
James 4:8, TLB
There’s a story in the Bible about a prodigal son who returned home to his father. When the father saw him a long way off, he began running toward his son with his arms outstretched. This story gives us an example of how God is always ready to receive us with outstretched arms.
God promises that He will draw close to you when you draw closer to Him. How do we draw close to Him? By making time to pray, reading the Bible, and worshiping every day. By meditating on His promises. By attending a good, Bible-based church. By putting Him first place in everything that you do. The easiest way is to simply call on His name. The good news is that when you take that first step toward Him, He will come running toward you!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
“Father, thank You for drawing close to me as I take a step toward You. Give me the strength to serve You and always put You first in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
