God Is Calling You To Have A Closer Walk With Jesus
December 9, 2009 by Lynne Lee
If you really want a deeper, more intimate walk with God you will proably need to change some priorities, but it’s worth it! Life will work much better when you walk more closely with God.
The Lord has made it abundantly clear that He wants me to re-order my priorities. I have become very busy with doing many good things and God is saying,
“Put your relationship with Me first!”
So, I am laying aside many of the things that have kept me busy and going back to giving the Lord first place in my life. I hope that you’ll join me.
God doesn’t want you to do more for Him, He wants you to spend more time with Him.
Abide in Me
He says, “I am the vine, and you are the branches. He who abides in Me and I in him, bears much fruit; without Me you can do nothing.”
Your heavenly Father wants you to choose to be with Him more of the time. He longs for you to choose to spend more of your day with Him.
I strongly encourage you to become closely connected then stay closely connected. Remember, without God you can do nothing of any lasting value.
If you want to grow in God, then you can no longer settle for giving Him second or third or fourth place. Make friendship with God your first priority.
Are you ready to give God FIRST place in your life?
What will you do differently to make sure that you give God His rightful place?
I am going back to spending the first part of the day with God. For me, that means meditating on His word, writing down what I hear Him say, and acting on what I hear.
What does it mean for you?
I hope you will leave your response below.
