Draw close to Him

…The Spirit Whom He has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love. –James 4:5

Do you want to be closer to God? He wants to be closer to us. The scripture above says His Spirit dwells in us and yearns to be welcome with a jealous love. So how much closer can you be?

We can always draw closer in our relationship with God. In fact, we are the ones who determine just how close our relationship with Him will be. Even though He lives in us, the Holy Spirit won’t force a relationship with us. He wants us to make Him welcome in our lives.

God created us for fellowship and He greatly desires relationships with us. He longs to talk to us, to listen to us, to teach us and guide us–simply to be a part on our lives. And we are the better for it! We are renewed when we fellowship with God. The benefits of spending time with the Father are endless.

My friend, I encourage you to be relentless in making time for fellowship with the Father. He is waiting. He is saying, “Come to Me..” So go ahead… and see what’s in store!
