Draw Closer to God - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 13 February Tuesday
"Come close to God, and God will come close to you… " (James 4:8, NLT)
Draw Closer to 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.
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!
A Prayer for Today
in heaven, I do offer You continual praise. I choose to follow Your
Word so that You may be glorified through me. Let everything within me
honor You in all that I do in Jesus’ name. Amen."
