James 4v8 “Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world” (NLT)
Greetings in the wonderful name of our Lord Savior Jesus Christ
God will always create many chances for a man to be where he is supposed to be. Man will always decide to part with God. But know that He did one very special thing to give man a chance to come back to him. John 3v16 [By sending his only loved Son, so we can believe in Him and be saved].
From there, it is a man’s responsibility to maintain the closeness with God. Being closer to God and also finding a way back to Him is never an easy journey. But when you know where your place is, you will use every spiritual weapon given to us, fighting to maintain your position in him.
The benefits of being closer to God:
You will know Him better, you will know His heart.
You will recognise His voice easily even amongst loudest voices.
Your relationship with Him will be strong.
You will spiritually grow faster.
You will gain His trust like Job.
You will always get His attention in your prayers.
The world’s desires will not rule in your life like Joseph.
Psalm 73v28 “But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign LORD my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do” (NLT).
Speak today like Asaph in this psalm and say it is good to be closer to God. When you are closer to God victory, prosperity, wisdom, and rest is certain. To be closer to the ever present God, honest and loyal God is good and I’m going to fight to stay closer to him.
Mercy on you.
