Draw near to God and He will draw near to you – James 4:8
God made a vow, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’. He is a loving father, intimate and personal. When He calls us He calls us to Himself, to save us He does it Himself. He is not busy with other things while checking in on us, His preoccupation is us. We are called by His Name, beloved, given everything we need and dear to the Father. Hence He isn’t only our God, He is our Father. He wants closeness with us. He doesn’t rule from afar, but leads us from within, He wants Fellowship. God is love and love is up, close and personal. He doesn’t want us worshipping from afar, He wants us in Him. He wants our hearts. James 4:5 Or do you think that the scripture says in vain, “The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously”? God wants us all to Himself, daily devoting ourselves to Him while He nourishes us with His goodness. The whole aim is closeness, draw near to Him and He will draw near to you.
