The book of James reminds us that when we draw near to God He will draw near to us. Whatever your circumstances draw near to Him.
How do you draw near?
- Draw near through prayer – talk with the Lord about your hopes, desires and even your disappointments.
- Draw near through reading His word – Meditate on the Gospel, His great promises to you, and memorize His word.
- Draw near through worshiping – Worship God at all times. Worship Him with your words, deeds, mind and heart.
- Draw near by fellowshipping with other Christians – Be transparent! We can’t “spur one another on to good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24) unless we bare each others burdens and tell others about our failures.
James 8:8a “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you”
Psalm 73:28 “But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge that I may tell of all your works.”
Romans 12:12 “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”
