Draw Near

James 4:8: “Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” What a marvelous promise.

Jesus said to seek first the kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33). Try doing this literally. Try to take whatever it is you do that you believe draws you nearer to God, and make this the very first thing you do every day.

When I do this, I find God returning the consideration. I seek the realm of God in the morning, and through peace and grace, he makes his presence known within the tiny realm of Pete throughout the day.
