How to draw closer to God topic has a special meaning for me.
I myself had wanted to know how to draw closer to God in the past.
It’s one of those things you’d like to do, but you don’t know how to.
And the more you try, the less successful you seem to have.
I would like to share with you today ideas, which I believe are key to helping you be closer to God.
#1.Study the Bible
To introduce it, I invite you to read a small text from the Bible:
(…) have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.
The previous text presents an idea that helps us to better focus our perspective on how to draw closer to God.
In many cases, we have been taught the idea that God is someone so great, so supreme, and at the same time so perfect that he prefers to keep his distance from us.
The unconscious idea that God is far away, that I am the one who has to draw closer to him, is present in most minds.
That idea itself ends up becoming an obstacle to getting closer to God.
Page after page, the Bible presents a rather different idea.
It presents the idea of a loving God who wants to be with us.
A God who delights in being close.
#2. Obey and have faith in Him.
Let me show you how to draw closer to God.
From Eden, when God walked through the garden to be close to Adam and Eve.
Through Israel when God accompanied them on their pilgrimage, and later asked them to build him a tabernacle to dwell with them.
We then see God instructing them to build a temple where his presence can be in the midst of the kingdom of Israel during Salmon’s time.
We then see God Himself coming in the flesh to be with human beings.
After Jesus departs, we see him living inside us by his Holy Spirit.
#3. Receive Jesus
One day, not too far away, Jesus will return and be with us and then God Himself will dwell again among the redeemed in the new Jerusalem.
Dear reader, the idea I want to point out is that you need first of all to understand that God is not far away as you perhaps think.
Understand that God does not want to be far away, that he does not prefer to keep his distance.
God delights in the proximity and of having an intimate relationship with us. you can read more about personal relationship with God.
To put it more specifically, being close to God doesn’t require going anywhere, it doesn’t require earning points to deserve to be close to God.
Being close to God’s heart requires us to understand that Jesus has already done everything on the cross to reconcile us to himself.
God wants to be close to you, and if you understand that truth, and treasure it in your heart, you will better understand the love of the Eternal Father.
It is that immeasurable love that attracts hearts with strings of love toward Him.
How to draw closer to God is through the cross, the way to draw near to God is to know God for who he really is.
Most likely that will require you to ask God to help you understand his character correctly, because most likely God is not the way you were told he was.
God loves you, God accepts you, God longs to help you walk with Him, longs to help you leave the sin that makes you run away from Him.
Understanding and accepting God’s love for you in Jesus, accepting his grace and forgiveness, is the real path of how to draw closer to God that will take you on a journey along which your heart and God’s will be intimately linked for all eternity.
