How Close Are You?
0 0

Do you ever feel like you want to be closer to God but it’s just not happening? That’s where I find myself right now. I want to be closer to Him, but... so where’s the problem? I’ve been a believer for decades. What’s the deal? Is God not holding up His end of things?

When I’m really honest, God hasn’t forgotten about me. He’s not too busy with others. He has never broken a promise. That pretty much points back to looking at what I need to change on my end. In the Bible it says “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” So what things am I doing that help me to draw near to Him… and what things am I choosing to do or not do that pull me away from Him? I don’t know where you’re at in your walk with God, but I need to change some priorities.

Thoughtfully,
Marv Mickley

  • Oh friends, I have something powerful to share with you today. Something that really impacted me recently. I heard Jill Briscoe from World Relief speak at If:Gathering 2017 a couple weeks ago and she spoke about how she struggles with fear. Anyone relate to that? So said her whole life she has struggled with this fear and she was sharing about a situation where she was pleading with God to not have to do something. But, she kept hearing his prompting. So, she took a step forward IN FEAR and after taking the step the courage came. AFTER she took the step. She was not filled with courage and THEN took the step. She had to step forward first.
