Approaching God

Don’t Fear Embracing His Love“He knelt down on his knees...and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.” – Daniel 6:10 The significance of the above mentioned Scripture is that God empowers us to stand for Him as we bow to pray. I’ve learned that there is no room for pride when we walk with and approach God. There have been times that I have encountered the trials and tribulations of life that oftentimes surround many of us. Like the Allstate Insurance slogan says, “Life comes at you fast!”

Early on, I decided to walk with Christ. My journey became strengthened and empowered every time I approached my Heavenly Father. I grew more humbled and stood in awe as I witnessed and experienced His true love for me.

Observing His love shed light on my spiritual life. My quiet time was just between us—Father and daughter--sharing peaceful and prayerful moments. This is where my strength grew. I knew no matter what I did or how much I fell short, He was there, walking with me, step by step!

The more I approached the Lord, the more things He revealed to me. When our Father’s light shines in our lives, it encourages us and humbles us to trust in Him. I learned that I cannot depend on my own righteousness—as sinners, we all fall short of God’s standards. What we must remember is that God is abundantly perfect in every way. To approach Him calls for humility, grace and mercy—which sustains me. We must rely and trust only in Him!

It’s God’s choice to love you and to make you part of His family. He’s always waiting patiently for you. All you have to do is approach Him. When you draw nearer to Him, you are sure to be on His side. He knows you by name and longs for you to know Him. He is the greatest gift known to all humankind.

So, what are you waiting for? Approach Him. Invite Him into your life. If you know the Lord, you’ll never walk alone. He longs to turn our mistakes into amazing examples of His grace. Approach Him today, and see the miracles of His works tomorrow!
