Persistence Jesus Devotional Psalm

Drawing Near

My newest book Victorious Mindset will be coming out this week.  The official release date is April 14th.  To celebrate this new book release, I would like to share a few devotionals from the book.  This book is a 30 day devotional sharing how to have a mind set on Christ and be victorious over the things that we face in life.  The Victorious Living Collection would not be complete without sharing how to have a mind set on Christ.  I continue to enjoy this series of books so much and am so appreciative to God for giving me each book to write.  Thank you God!  I pray that these books will bring You glory and lift the name of Jesus high!

Drawing Near to God

Come near to God and he will come near to you… —James 4:8

Live It Out

This is great news! You see, Satan wants to be a roadblock between you and God. He will say and do whatever it takes to keep you from having a vibrant relationship with the Lord. This is why you have to resist Satan. Make him flee so you can draw near to God. God wants to be as near to you as possible. Will you draw near to Him? It’s a direct path. You don’t have to cut any corners. It’s not a maze you have to find your way through. God wants you to just come near and He will be right there to come near to you.

Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.—James 4:8

God desires our submission, He wants us to resist the devil so we can draw near to Him. Then comes this part of scripture that reminds us we struggle daily with sin. We can never take sin lightly. We must stay on guard and wash our hands of the sin that creeps into our lives. We must purify our hearts before the Lord daily. God doesn’t want us to say we desire to live for Him then turn around and live for the world. He wants all or nothing. Choose to give Him your all today!

Let us then approach the throne of grace with con- fidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.—Hebrews 4:16

Pray It Through

Dear Father God, I submit my life to You. I continue to resist the devil and all his schemes. May I draw near to You daily and enjoy the nearness of You in my life. Please help me to see if there is anything unclean in my heart and help me to purify myself before You. Thank You that I can approach Your throne of grace with confidence and experience the full measure of Your mercy on a daily basis!

We are not only to renounce evil, but to manifest the truth. We tell people the world is vain; let our lives manifest that it is so. We tell them that our home is above and that all these things are transitory. Does our dwelling look like it? O to live consistent lives!—James Hudson Taylor
