Ways of Getting Close- Drawing Near to God

Jerimiah 29:13
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

James 4:8

Come near to God and he will come near to you.

One of the quickest ways to draw near to God is through prayer. Getting close to him happens when we purpose to pursue the places where he dwells. Jesus withdrew from the crowds often to lonely places to pray.

Sin separates us from the Lord. We are reunited with God and he comes closer to us, by repenting from wrongs that we have done and asking for forgiveness. We are able to come boldly before his throne (face-to-face with him) and receive mercy and grace in our time of need.

The Bible says that the Lord inhabits the praises of his people, Psalms 22:3 KJV. We enter into a place where God draws near to us, by spending time praising him.
By reading God’s word he will speak to us. Drawing near to his voice in this way is an easy way of getting close to him.
How will you draw near to God today?

    Drawing always close near to God is always amazing. God’s satisfy your hunger as you draw close to him. Be bless as you come into God’s presence.

    I love to get close to God while I am on my knees. This is where I am able to focus on him better than any where else.

    I love feeling God’s presence in my life. That is why I try to live according to His will, each and every day. Some days I may fail, but I will pick myself up, ask repent and ask for forgiveness, and start again. We must continue to pursue His will for our lives daily and never stop, because when we stop, or loose our focus, that is when the enemy jumps in and tries to distract you even more so that he can trick you into coming into his world. Don’t do it, no matter what he tries to throw at you, it’s all a big lie, and the truth is not in him. Keep on believing and trusting in the Lord, and He will continue to love us and bring us through whatever trials we’re facing. God is awesome that way.
