Why and How to Draw Closer to God - Vlog
Getting closer. Drawing near. Being deeper. All things I have desired and continue to desire in my walk with Christ. The more I understand His heart and love, the more I’m drawn to want to know Him and not just about Him. I don’t just want to be associated with Him, but I want to be one with Him. #UltimateGoals ⠀⠀ On my own I’m so rubbish at always focusing on Christ. I’ve been guilty of being so easily distracted by hurt, what people said about me and the lies of the enemy above God’s voice. Yet He still likes me. I’m not all the way there, yet He sees me. He doesn’t just love me but He actually likes and enjoys me. The same way He loves, likes and enjoys you! ⠀⠀ Getting closer isn’t something only ‘babes’ need to consider. It’s actually something for those of us who desire to mature in our love for Christ. Something for His Bride. It’s a continual pursuit. A pursuit from a Bride who wants to love her Bridegroom; Jesus, more today then yesterday.
Here's a video with some help and encouragement on how to genuinely grow in your relationship with Jesus. The 'how' and 'why' we should desire to be closer to God, because it really can feel overwhelming in this day and age.
My relationship with Jesus has changed my whole world, in a positive way. It's a continual process, I'm always learning, reviewing, accepting change and adapting to a disciplined life. It's not easy but it's worth it.
Some of the verses mentioned;
'Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.' - 1 Peter 4:12-13
'I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.' - Ephesians 1:18
