Draw Close

Call to me, and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know" (Jeremiah 33:3, NIV)

What is your hurry?  What draws you away from intimacy with Him? This verse in Jeremiah reveals a great promise. God has something for you. If you rush into your day without being in His presence, you will miss something He wishes to share with you. 

When you draw close to Him, you realize how close He has always been to you. Your Father has much truth to reveal to you. He continually shares His heart, but when you are too busy worrying or fixing, you are too consumed with yourself to hear. Your Father is the omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient God. He is the creator of the universe. You come to your  God who knows you better than you know yourself. But most of all, you come to your Father, who loves you completely and without hesitation. He gives himself to you because you are precious to Him. You come to your Father, who is everywhere at the same time, and yet He is there for you.

He answers you with great things you do not know—great truths that have the power to change your life. You receive powerfully and completely from His bountiful grace. Some truths will take your breath away. Others you may not understand just yet, but you believe by faith, and you trust by faith. You trust because you know How much He loves you. Because you trust your Father, you have peace in what He shows you. You rest in Him because you believe Him. You never struggle with anything He reveals because you know He only has the best for you. You have inner peace and joy.

Is this your relationship with Him?  When you surrender your worries—your pre-conceived notions—your control—your feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness, you realize just how precious you are to Him. You hear His heart. Everything in you believes that you are His.

Draw close to Him.  He always draws close to you.
