Draw Near to God
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you (James 4:8).
God has given us an open door – a divine opportunity. The unearned privilege of worshiping the King. When we worship our Lord, we are given access into God's presence. When we draw near to Him, He draws near to us and we find in Him fulfillment, significance, and joy.
In His presence we can find healing for our bodies and healing for our inner wounds. Through worship, we grow in our experiential knowledge of God. As we magnify Jesus, He becomes bigger in our understanding, while the power of our problems diminish. When we worship the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we sensitize our eyes and ears to the moving of the Spirit. He guides and directs us, and He ministers to us His unconditional love.
Let's draw near to God and worship Him. Let's make worship a daily discipline. That discipline will soon turn to delight, and when we delight ourselves in the Lord, He will give us the desires of our heart (Psalm 37:4).
