Affirmation of God: I draw near to God.

Today’s Scripture: Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:8 ESV 

God is our only peace. God is our only hope. Why do we continue to seek peace and hope elsewhere? Will it be different this time in the false promises of the world or in the relationships of man? 

I am thankful for God’s faithfulness and His forgiveness in my faithlessness. Time and time again we find ourselves at a place of needing God; a place where He is our only hope or only source of wisdom. God is ALWAYS there. When we draw near to Him He draws near to us. Why do we let other things draw us away? 

LORD, help me to be pure in my faithfulness to You. LORD, help me to only seek Your will. LORD, make Your passions my passions. LORD, teach me to live in Your Spirit. 

What do you find when you draw near to God? 

Today’s Prayer: Father God, thank You for Your faithfulness. Forgive me for my infidelity of You. Thank You for meeting me each and every time I come to You. I am unworthy and so thankful for Your grace. I live for Your love and live in Your Spirit. Help me to purify my heart and only live for Your will. Amen

    He does meet us every time and I’m so thankful. You remind me today Tom, that He is our “only”…
    only hope, only peace, only way to forgiveness…

  2. Alleluia! How sweet to know that God draws near to us when we draw near to Him!

    Beloved Lord, how I long to be closer every moment to You;
    Draw me near to Your heart and upon Your Pathway True.
    Sweeter love none can find on this earth upon which we live;
    Align me then with Your will, as my life to You I forever give.

    Much gratitude I extend to you, Tom, for faithfully sharing God’s Word, Love and Light!!
    May He continue to bless you richly!!
