It's time to draw close to God

image-2James 4:7-8 NLT So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come close to God, and God will come close to you...

We are living in the last days. Now Jesus said that nobody knows when the end of time will come, except the father. But it is looking like all the signs are pointing to the end. There are wars and rumors of wars. Mass shootings in schools and churches and in public places. Our rights as Christians are being slowly taken away under the so called separation of church and state. Our safety and protection is only in the Lord.

Psalm 91: 1-2 NLT

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty;  This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;  He is my God, and I trust Him.

The Bible tells us that things in the world are going to get worse not better. It is going to get more dangerous, so our only protection is drawing close to the Lord. We have to trust in Him and not put our trust in man. Government will fail us, people will disappoint us, but God will never fail us.

Remember what Jesus told us: In the world we will have tribulations, but be of good cheer I have overcome the world! Church it's time for us to seek the Lord like never before.  He is our hope in a world that is growing more hopeless each and every day.

So don't be too busy to spend time with the Lord each day. Busyness is not our friend, we have to change our routine and cut out things that keep us from spending time with the Lord. So take inventory of your schedule and make a quality decision to put God first in your life. I can assure that you will not regret putting God at the top of your to do list everyday.  He is waiting to fellowship with you and to guide you to that secret place.
