"And when you draw close to God, God will draw close to you." James 4:8
Remember, the above is a promise.
Simple, yet challenging for some to believe.
The motion of lifting a dumbbell is a simple movement. Yet, if it weighs 250 pounds, it becomes hard to do!
We think that as believers, we must clean our act up to approach God.
We try "harder," be "gooder," smell "better," kid's kinda stuff.
But the truth is that all we need to do is move into position.
It is like setting an empty pitcher under a faucet.
Place yourself under the tap, and God will care for the rest.
If your pitcher needs washing or filling up, all is His part.
All you do is get into position; the love you need He provides.
What are the things you are trying to do to draw closer that are not working?
Lord, thank you for the simplicity of Your love. May we move in faith to enjoy You daily! Amen
