Let Us Draw Closer to God together
Choose to serve God
How do we draw closer to God? When do we know that it is time. First of all we should start with the obvious. We must choose to serve God.
"And if it seems evil unto you to serve the Lord, Choose you this day whom you will serve whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell : but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
God has given us this same choice. To serve him or not to serve him. To have everlasting life or to have eternal damnation. To give your life to him or to give it to Satan. When we serve God is also a choice he gives to us all. But most of the time we choose to wait until our lives have been through the ringer, until Satan has walked all over our lives. That is sometimes when we decide to make that choice. There are those of course who figure that serving God is no fun, and they want to enjoy their lives but do you know what. Most of the time that fun will get you in a lot of trouble. It sometimes will lead us to jail, our death beds, and even being abused. Why does it take all of this for us to decide that there has got to be a better way to live?
There has to be something out there for me? My life is worth something. Why did God create me? We tell ourselves there has got to be a reason.
Yes, there is a reason, God has chosen each of us, even from our mothers womb. To serve him and to have an abundant and healthy life.
2 Chronicles 7:14
"If my people which are called by my people which are called by my name , shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from there wicked ways; then will I here from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
We are his people because he created us. If we humble ourselves and stop feeling like we control our lives and allow God to have complete control. Pray and seek the face of God, not just what God can do for us, but how he can change us. God will here us and he will heal us from every disease, sickness, broken heart, abuse, rejected spirit and every thing that Satan has inflicted on us, when we allow him to control our lives. Let's face the facts, if you have not allowed God to be your head, if you have not chosen God then who do you think is in control. When Satan is in control, all manner of evil can be done to you. But do you know what, it is not too late because God loves you and he is waiting with open arms to come into your hearts and your lives. It does not matter about anyone else, God loves you and wants to be there for you. Allow him, if you want a new life.
To begin a new life with Christ see Romans 10:9-10 and confess it openly. God will come into your hearts, create a new person in you.
