Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. James 4:8 NLT
Our loyalty is divided. We must reposition ourselves into a posture of gratitude to accept His gift of grace. Just as I want to hold my baby boys close to me; God wants to hold you close to his heart. Draw close to him – confess your distance, ask to be near him, praise his Holy name, and pray for his presence.
let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22 NLT
Jesus Christ came to this world as a ransom payment for our distance (and sin) from our Heavenly Father. Don’t grow legs and run away from Him… run into His loving arms.
My eldest knows how to pull at my heart strings. Whenever he needs me he says, “hold you, hold you, hold you,” until I give in. How can I not give in?
That’s my heart with legs walking around outside of my body.
I pray you are wrapped up in His heavenly arms today.
In His Grip,
