Come Near To God

We often ask ‘where is God in all of this?’  Yet so often we think nothing of Him in our day to day life.  Think about your relationships in your life and who would you feel most comforted by in your time of need.  Is it that person you pass by frequently in familiar places…you have seen each other often…you have exchanged Hi’s or Hello’s and maybe even some small talk and you may know each other’s name but not much else?  Is that the person you would run to first and wonder why they are not doing more to help you in crisis?  Ask yourself…how much better do you know God and have spent time seeking Him than that acquaintance?  If you truly want to know God and what He says and what He is doing…seek Him…come near to Him and spend time with Him…He is waiting to hear from you.  Amen.

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”

James 4:7-8

“…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

2 Chronicles 7:14
