Draw Closer to Your God

Today's Word with Joel and Victoria

 

TOPIC: Draw Closer to Your God

DATE: SATURDAY, 7TH NOVEMBER 2015

 

Today’s Scripture:

“When you draw close to God, God will draw close to you...”

James 4:8, TLB

 

 

 

THE MESSAGE

 

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.”
