Draw Closer

 

One day, as my husband was flipping through radio stations, I heard these words from an old song, “Darling, if you want me to be closer to you, get closer to me.” No matter what else we listened to, I could not get these words out of my heart. I even remember shaking my head and asking the Lord to help me focus on Him instead of these words, apologizing for allowing these words to keep running through my brain instead of a worship or praise song! But . . . I heard Him say, “listen.” That was a bit of a shock to me, but I listened, and the words were slightly different, bringing another whole meaning with it . . . “Daughter, if you want Me to be closer to you, draw closer to Me.”

 

For quite a while after that I let the words flow through me the way He changed them. There is a hunger within, a deep yearning for an even closer walk with Him . . . and, He is the Unchanging One. He is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8). If we desire to have a closer relationship with Him, WE are the ones that need to do the moving! Holy Spirit draws us . . . we need to do the seeking!

 

“And when I am lifted up from the earth, I shall draw all people to Myself.” John 12:32 (New Jerusalem Bible)

 

“I love those who love Me; whoever searches eagerly for me finds me.” Proverbs 8:17 (NJB)

 

“But seek first the kingdom [of God] and His righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.” Matthew 6:33 (New American Bible)

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
