Getting Back to God

Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.
James 4:8

Do you ever wish that you could know the presence of the Lord in a much more intimate way? Surely every Christian has longed for this many a time. We have been saved for fellowship with God. It is a denial of our very reason for existence not to enjoy this close fellowship. We can never be satisfied without it.

Perhaps we can look back to times when we did enjoy a great intimacy with the Lord. We remember the sweet sense of His presence in the place of prayer. We cherish the memory of hours spent in the Word of God when the Author of the Book drew very near and blessed us. But somehow the old closeness is gone. There is not the same joy in our spiritual exercises, and we long for the former fellowship. Is there any hope? Praise God, there is.

Draw nigh to God. There is a way of approach. The blood of Christ assures our access to the Father (Heb. 10:19). There is not only an access for us, but there is an invitation. The Lord calls us to Himself. Draw near. Let us lay aside the follies that took our attention off our God. Let us plead the blood against every obstacle that stands in our way. Neither sin nor Satan can withstand the power of the blood of Christ; so let us cry to the Lord to overcome them and bring us near.

He will answer that cry. Indeed, as soon as we approach He will draw near to us. He will come with forgiveness; He will come with a smile. Let us come today, and we will wonder why it took us so long.

As soon as it is our settled purpose to please Christ, He takes us for His bosom friends.
R. C. Chapman
