Getting Closer to God is Possible
But it takes intentionality.
Getting Closer to God Takes Commitment
But David shows us how. In Psalm 63 we learn how to draw near to God.
Psalm 63:1-8 (ESV):
“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. 2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. 3 Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you. 4 So I will bless you as long as I live; in your name I will lift up my hands. 5 My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food, and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, 6 when I remember you upon my bed, and meditate on you in the watches of the night; 7 for you have been my help, and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy. 8 My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.”
Getting Closer to God Requires Intentionality.
At our core, we all just want to be known and accepted. Yet we can build walls for fear of rejection. This prevents closeness with others, but we can also build walls with God. We cannot be close to someone we don’t know and we can’t find God if we don’t seek Him. Listen in as we study Psalm 63 and how to be closer to God.
Sometimes it can be hard to get close to God because we cannot hear Him. But God invites us to draw near to Him based on His mercy and grace, not based on our own merit. We can be closer to God by following David’s example as we seek God and worship Him in all of life.
