ARE YOU FAR FROM GOD?
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
James 4:7-8 NKJV
In our walk with the Lord, we may find ourselves far from God. Maybe you are a good Christian who goes to church every Sunday and even in the middle of the week when needed. This does not guarantee that your life will completely be perfect before the Lord.
Sometimes there are those small things that we do which bring a very huge impact in our walk with the Lord. There are those things we do or say that end up offending others people in the body of Christ. We sometimes gossip and spread rumors of other people without considering how much pain it will cost to the whole body of Christ.
As days go by the passion for the things of God feds and we start doing things by depending more on our own understanding. Here is the where Christians stop praying, fasting and reading the word of God in the daily basis. Some start compromising the truth of the Gospel, people who have the form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.
This morning, I want you to encourage you to put aside time for God this weekend. I know you have a lot of things to do and maybe your schedule for the weekend is already full. One thing you need to know that is, without God being with you none of what you are planning to do this weekend will succeed. You need God in every area of your life; you need God to help you become a better version of yourself.
If you have been living like the people of this world now is the time for you to go back to God. Repent your sins; build all those things that were broken. Start afresh the fellowship with the Spirit of God and let the hand of Jesus touch you. Desire to know God more, submit your life to Him; draw near to God that He may draw near to you. Give yourself to Him and let Him have a total dominion over your life; and He will strengthen you all the days of your life.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear God, I want to spend more time with You. Help me to put aside time for You every day that I may know You more and grow in the truth. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
