Submit yourselves, then, to God…
Come near to God and he will come near to you.
(James 4:7-8, NIV)
I passed the television and reached out my hand to turn it on. But I felt You prompt me to turn to You and pray instead. I obeyed, and I was glad I did.
I was even gladder when I realized that it was a request from You, my Savior, my Brother, and my Friend.
Lord, help me hear all Your promptings not as demands from a higher authority but as personal invitations from You. May each request remind me of the intimate moments we have enjoyed and the many times You have come and met my need.
Each word from You is an invitation to draw closer. Help me to always hear Your voice as the voice of love.
