Close to God
“Worship Me by living close to Me. This was My original design for man, into whom I breathed my very breath of Life. This is My desire for you that you stay near Me as you walk along your life path. Each day is an important part of that journey. Although you may feel as if you are going nowhere in this world, your spiritual journey is another matter altogether, taking you along steep, treacherous paths of adventure. That is why walking in the Light of My Presence is essential to keep you from stumbling. By staying close to Me, you present yourself as a living sacrifice. Even the most routine part of your day can be a spiritual act of worship, holy and pleasing to Me.”
-From Jesus Calling, September 14
What does living close to God look like in your life?
I am the vine; you are the branches, if you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. John 15:4, 9
Let me hear of Your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting You. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to You. Psalm 143:8 (Read verses 5-8 slowly). Pause to think about what is being said. Take time to meditate on them.
I long to obey Your commandments! Renew my life with Your goodness. Psalm 119:40
Ask God to reveal to you the things that hinder you from His closeness and walking in the Light of His Love.
Worship His and offer Him a sacrifice of praise!
Be blessed and be a blessing!
