Come near to God and He will come near to you. James 4:8
06/12/09 Why do we need to come near to Him before He comes near to us? Why do we have to make the first move? Technically, He has already made the first move... And the second move… He created us and has a plan for us. He came to the earth and dwelled as one of us for the purpose of dying for our sins. That was a pretty big move. And He pursues us…actively. He continues to do this throughout our lives unless we flat out reject Him. So that’s a third move… And, I don’t know about you, but He has never been very far away from me. All I’ve ever had to do was make a tiny baby step and He was right there with arms around me. In fact, more times than not, I lift my foot to take that step and I’m in His arms before that foot ever touches the ground before Him.
