Come Near

James 4:8 

Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Everyday and at any time you can and will be tested. Whether it be your patience, time, trust, or love at any given time during the course of your day, it will be tested. Rather than getting upset or worrisome why not draw near the Lord? Put your faith in him and know that he is God. He will supply all of your needs. Unlike you and I, God’s love stays the same. He never falls out of love with us or is so upset with us that he removes us from his life. For me knowing that I have this just simply brightens my day. This love is truly unconditional and everlasting. As the word states above draw near him and he will draw near you. Today and everyday I will draw near the Lord for all the pains I may endure will only make me a better person. Perseverance is key! Here is another scripture to think about apply daily to you lives when in doubt.

James 1:2-7

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.


If you believe than surely it will be achieved! Until next time 🙂
