God has already sent an invitation to you through his son Jesus. He wants to be in a close relationship with you and has bridged the gap between your sin and his Grace. The ball is now in your court. Many of us want a closer relationship to God, but want him to do all the work. We expect for him to fill us and surround us with his presence. We must schedule time to be alone with God. We must draw closer to him through his word and through prayer. He is faithful to respond. What are you waiting for? He has requested residence in your heart and dominion over your life. How will you respond?

Prayer Starter: Heavenly Father, I thank you for making the first move. You are such a gentleman Lord, patiently awaiting my heart’s response. Today, I make the decision to accept your invitation to a close relationship. I will draw close to you through daily time in your word.

Scripture: James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
