Full Assurance In The Heart – Day 52

June 15, 2011

7 So give yourselves completely to God. Stand against the devil, and the devil will run from you. 8 Come near to God, and God will come near to you.

James 4:7-8a

The key to growing and maintaining your faith is staying close to God, the author and finisher of your faith.  James encourages us that when we come near to God, God comes near to us.   Walking close to God, means you have chosen to receive the grace that forgives; not a grace that was earned, but a grace lovingly granted because of the finished work of the Cross.  You have chosen to abide in His presence and in the power of His love, embracing His Words as truth for your life.  When one chooses to give themselves completely to God and live their lives close to God, they will find a grace that gives them a strength to stand against the devil and his schemes. 

As you forge ahead today, let me encourage you to stay close to God; draw near to Him and He will surely draw near to you. Resist the schemes of the devil, they only have one goal in mind, that is to draw you further away from the One who loves you best!

 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

Psalms 73:28
