Grace to remain in close fellowship with God

MAR. 18


Isaiah 55:6-7 (NLT), James 4:8 (NIV)
Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. *Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Author PhotoWhen our text above says we should call upon God now while He is near, it means that God wants us to always
maximize every opportunity that we have to seek Him. Whenever there is an opportunity or whenever our hearts are stirring us to seek God we must not push off that desire to another time. That is the Holy Spirit telling us that God is near or that God wants to do something both in our lives and through our lives. It is always a great joy and privilege to have the opportunity to spend time in sweet fellowship and communion with God. Psalms 16:11 (NKJV) says “you will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” As you rely on the Holy Spirit, this will continue to be your experience in God's presence.

God also wants our minds to be continually renewed so that we can be transformed into the fullness of Christ. We do not have to wait to get into God's presence to repent and turn away from any wrong we have done. The very moment we know that we have slipped or fallen, we must repent immediately, receive God's forgiveness and turn away from that wrong. God is always willing to have mercy upon us because of Christ and He does not want us to be out of fellowship with Him for one moment. Always run to God and never run away from God. Remain in close fellowship with Him. The closer you are in fellowship with God the more He will lead you into His will for your life and use you for His glory. As you grow in fellowship with Him, you will know Him more and become more like Him.

PRAYER: I desire to always be in close fellowship with you O Lord. Help me to always run to you and remain in close fellowship with you.
