Dear Daughter of Almighty God
James 4:8 (ESV)
8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Draw near to God, when we focus on Jesus we are drawing closer to God as they are one. As we move closer to God He moves closer to us what an awesome image. Just picture yourself walking toward God but He is running to you to be your strength, support, joy, deliverer, protector, healer restorer and so much more.
As our focus is on Jesus He can lead us and guide us through all life throws at us. When our focus is Jesus we are focused on the answer and Jesus can lead us to the Word for help. When our focus is Jesus we will be purified because we will be in the Word of God, it’s the Word of God that renews our mind and so we will not be double-minded.
Staying focused on Jesus means a battle can be raging around us but as we cannot take our eyes of Jesus we will not even know and Jesus will just deal with it. The picture Jesus gave me was sitting at His table with Him just so focused on Him and all that He is that I did not even know this war was going on around me. Psalm 23:5 says “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;” See yourself sat at that table with Jesus.
