Getting close to God can sometimes feel like an impossible task. Have you ever felt like God was far away, distant and unapproachable? With all the distractions in our world, getting to God can be difficult. But it shouldn’t be.
Our inner voice can tell us that we are not good enough for God. Our failures and mistakes can hold us bound and prevent us from reaching out to God.
I sometimes feel like I am caught in a web of disappointment, failures and doubt that prevents me from getting to God. Can you relate?
So how do we get to God?
Believe that He is
I love this verse found in the Bible in the book of Hebrews,
“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek him.”
What a great thought that is. God rewards those who sincerely seek Him. That is good news!
Believe that you are
One thing that will keep you from getting to God is believing you are not worthy. This awesome verse in Romans 5:1 says,
“Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us.”
Because of what Jesus did for us on the cross, we are made right in God’s eyes. So it’s not based on our own ability to be good but His gift to us.
Just do it
Now I am not referring to the Nike slogan. But when it comes to getting to God and seeking Him, we need to just do it. No matter how we feel, we need to make it a priority to seek after Him and draw close to Him. When we do that, supernatural things can happen in our lives.
