Today the Lord spoke to me from James 4:8. It tells us “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” This verse is really beautiful regarding the simple fact that if we search and get nearer and nearer to our Father, He will search and get nearer to us. This verse seems to tie in to yesterdays devotional really well and show us what the Lord will do if we search Him out, which was clear in Luke when Zacchaeus searche and drew nearer to the Father and Jesus drew near to him.
Let’s open ourselves up and follow through with our sayings. We talk about how “we want to get closer to the Lord”, “we want to change”, “we wish we could stop what we were doing”, but all of these mean nothing if not put in action. Words without deeds are empty and the Lord sure doesn’t want your good intentions, because good intentions are just ideas not put in place. Let’s pray we can really open up the Word, stay in prayer, seek and meditate on the Lord, so that as we are drawing nearer to Him, He will DEFINITELY draw nearer to us.
