Feeling Far Away From Jesus

If you have been feeling like you are far away from Jesus, how will you draw near to God today? The Bible declares that the Lord inhabits the praises of his people, Psalms 22:3 KJV. We enter into a place where God draws near to us, by spending time praising him.Read

James 4:8

Come near to God and he will come near to you.

Jerimiah 29:13

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Sin always separates us from God. We are reunited with God and he comes nearer to us, by repenting from wrongs that we have done and seeking forgiveness. We are able to come boldly before his throne (face-to-face with him) and receive mercy and grace in our time of need.

One of the fastest ways to draw near to Jesus is through spending time in prayer. Getting close to God occurs when we decide to pursue the place where he dwells. Jesus retreated from the crowds of people often to lonely locations to communion with his heavenly father through prayer.

By reading God’s word he will speak to us. Drawing near to his voice in this way is an easy way of getting close to him.

If you have been feeling distant from the Lord, he is not far away. In actual fact, he has said that he will never leave you. No one can snatch you from his hands and nothing can separate you from his love. Take some to time to draw near to God right now through prayer.
