“Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners and purify your hearts, you double minded.” (James 4:8 ESV)
“Call to me and I will answer you and I will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” (Jeremiah 33:3 ESV)
Have you ever got a song stuck in your head? Usually, for me at least, it’s a stupid one. Like a commercial.
I woke up yesterday with a song repeating in my head. It’s called “Next To Me” by Jordan Feliz. This is what was on repeat in my head for hours:
“Saying, child, come on back now
You’ve been gone too long
Let me lead you back where you belong
Right next to me.”
Doesn’t that sound like a great place to be, right next to Jesus? That’s where I want to be. And we can be. All we need to do is serve God with all our hearts and we can walk beside Jesus and learn from Him. Who better to learn from than the Master?
We could all use personal instruction from the Master. So what are we waiting for? Let’s dig out our Bibles and start reading. Ask questions. Jesus will answer them. He is waiting for us to draw closer. He desires a close relationship as much as we do. Or at least as much as we should. So listen and answer when Jesus calls. That’s one call you don’t want to miss.
Excuse me now. Jesus is calling. Talk to you later.
