How to Draw Close to God


How to Draw Close to God

How can people draw closer to God? Here are the top 10 ways that I’ve found to be true in my own life:

  1. Yield your spirit to the Lordship of Christ.
  2. Read the Bible and mull it over, and sit there and think about it, and don’t be rushed.
  3. Pray with your heart.
  4. Go to church, be a friend, and use your spiritual gifts.
  5. Praise God with all your heart. Sing. If you’re off-key, play praise music.
  6. Pinpoint sin in your life and repent of it. Ask God to change you, and see the exciting results.
  7. Love your spouse and make him a priority. Learn to draw closer to God through your spouse.
  8. Practice hospitality and have families from your church over to dinner.
  9. Ask God what to do with your day instead of doing your own agenda.
  10. Ask God a question and expect Him to answer. Open your heart and wait.

    I love this! So many people ask God what to do with their life and then do, do what they want anyway thinking its what God desires when its really their own desires speaking. But if you practice living being close to God in your complete life, then you just KNOW when He’s speaking to you!

    One of my favorite comments that you make here is to not be rushed when reading the word. To sit there and mull it over. This cannot be stressed enough!

    This is such a great list! I’m trying to be better about #8! We had planned on having a family over this past weekend and then my husband and kids got sick.
