THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
WHEN YOU HAVE A HUMBLE HEART BEFORE GOD, YOU ARE DRAWING CLOSER TO HIM…..
God promises that He will draw close to YOU when you draw closer to HIM. How do we draw closer to Him? Here are a couple of ways:
First of all, this verse goes on to say that we must turn AWAY from sin because sin separates us from God. Simply turning TO God is the FIRST way to draw CLOSER to Him. Then, the Bible tells us to come into His presence with THANKSGIVING in our hearts and give Him PRAISE. When you have a THANKFUL heart, you are drawing CLOSER to Him. The scripture tells us that God OPPOSES the proud, but gives grace to the HUMBLE. When you have a humble heart before Him, you are drawing CLOSER to Him. When you SEEK Him with your whole heart, you will FIND Him. He will draw CLOSE to you.
Seek God today by READING your Bible, PRAYING, MEDITATING on His promises and WORSHIPING Him. With an open heart, you can draw near to God just AS you are, right WHERE you are, and He WILL fill You with His PEACE and GOODNESS all the days of your life!
“Come close to God, and God will come close to you…”
(James 4:8, NLT)
