James 4:8 (New King James Version)
8] Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Draw Near to God
Sir Isaac Newton noted, "I can take my telescope and look millions and millions of miles into space, but I can lay it aside, go into my room, shut the door, and get down on my knees in earnest prayer, and see more of heaven and get closer to God than I can when I am assisted by all the telescopes on earth."
Easily distracted by God's creation, I remind myself daily that God only wrote one book, and that is the Bible. Only through His infallible Word can I find His Son, Jesus Christ. Only He can cleanse me, purify my heart and clear my mind.
Christ says, "Come to me," and I came. Christ says, "I will never leave you or nor forsake you," and I grabbed that promise and held on. You can too.
FOR TODAY: DRAW NEAR TO GOD
