Are you passionate to know Him?

"Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you." James 4:8a

Drawing nigh to God is like having a best friend only better.

Our relationship is continually growing for more of Him.

When we draw close to Him we are telling Him that we would rather spend time with Him more than anything.

There is nothing more precious to God than when we spend time with Him.

It is like a fix - something that you just have to have or do.

Do you have or do something on a regular basis?

You are passionately pursuing that something.

God wants to be that something.

We just don't drop our best friends or that regular something a whim and pick it up months later.

So why do we put God on a shelf or on the back burner?

Our relationship with the Lord can be an emotional let down if you let it.

Why?

Your relationship with the Lord will be the truest friendship you will ever have.

Your relationship with the Lord will Be the most intimate friendship, if you will let it.

Jesus brings His agape love to the table for you.

He comes with His arms wide open to welcome you.

He will never come to hurt you.

He is you Lifeline!

It is when we don't fellowship with Him that we will feel the effects after you have been with Him.

There is a place where sadness and loneliness can be satisfied.

There is a place where every need is met, whether it be physically or spiritually.

The only way to get to this place is by being with Him!

The more time that you spend with Him and meditate on His truth, the greater your passion will grow.

Do you have a passion to know Him?

The Smartian women at the well discovered this principle in the short amount of time just talking to Jesus.

Her curiosity rose up with in her as Jesus offered her living water.

She was very full of different emotions as she knew that Jesus indeed was a prophet.

In all of her excitement she ran to tell the others in town.

Excitement!

This is what will happen when we start getting closer to Him.

When we start learning about Him.

We will then be able to say ok, Lord what's on the agenda today.

We will put our full trust in Him.

He will meet our every need.

We will want to share our experiences with others.

Our excitement will grow and grow as we get passionate with Him.

When we get next to Him we shall be a different person than we were before.

He will change you from within and without.

Don't let a day go by without spending time with Him.

Think of what you do on a regular basis...

How much joy does it bring you?

Does it bring you peace?

Does it help your soul to prosper?

Does it wipe all your fears away?

Does it forgive you for your sin?

Does it leave you longing for more?

Does it give you hope?

What does that daily thing that you do, what does it do for you?

This walk with Jesus is as hard or as easy as you want to make it.

He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.

Before you even whisper that most intimate prayer He is already right there waiting for you to come and spend some time with Him.

He knows your heart, He knows your tender thoughts.

He will never leave you or forsake you!

He loves You!

He is trying to draw closer to you.

Won't you join Him today?

Lord, keep my passion strong for you never let that fire go out!

Thank You for sticking with me through thick and thin!
