We cannot be separated from God’s love. Even when we are totally unaware of it – God is still there. His love is always reaching out to us.
Romans 8:38-39‘For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from His love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, or where we are-high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean – nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God.’
THERE IS SOMETHING WE CAN DO
We need to develop a heart after God, seeking Him and drawing nearer to Him.
Psalm 73:28‘But it is good for me to draw near to God.’
James 4:8‘Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.’
Don’t become too busy to spend time ‘drawing near’ to God. Let’s avoid the pitfalls of busyness and religious activity because the Lord wants us to enjoy His living presence in our lives. Go after God, seek Him more, pursue Him more passionately and love Him more dearly.
NEARER TO GOD – THAT’S THE GOAL!
Have you ever heard someone say: ‘My son/daughter is getting closer to me as they are getting older.’ The truth is that the child has known the mother or the father all its life, but with time, and perhaps maturity, the relationship is developing. It is like this with us and our relationship with the Lord. We live with the knowledge that God is with us, BUT there is another dimension altogether, a closer and an even more real relationship. We are speaking here of the experience of His presence in our lives. It is getting to know God more intimately and with a deeper understanding and it is at this point that the barriers start disappearing. A closer relationship between ourselves and the Lord can be developed and pursued within our hearts. This is what God has in store for each one of us. This should be our goal and intention!
Prayer: Lord, I desire to have a closer relationship with You. I recognise that You are with me and that I will not be separated from Your love for me. I choose to draw near to You with the confident expectation that You will draw near to me. May my relationship with You grow and develop to a new level. May I experience and enjoy more of Your wonderful presence in my daily life. Amen.
