Come Near to God

When I was younger, I worked during the summer at a Christian horse camp. If I had a weekend off, I went to my grandma?s house. My grandma and I played board games, made pies, walked to the post office and stayed up late talking. Going to my grandma?s house was one of my favorite things to do.
I liked spending time with my grandma because I knew she would talk with me. My grandma paid attention to me.
Verse 8a of our Bible Reading says,
?Come near to God and God will come near to you.? Coming near to God means communicating with Him and spending time with Him. That?s what my grandma did for me.
God promises that He will come near to us if we come near to Him. God wants us to communicate with Him through prayer. He wants us to include Him in our daily decisions.
I hope you will come near to God today.
