Good Morning! Your devotional meditation is taken from James 4:8a which says,
“Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you…” (ESV).
We are witnessing an alarming array of wickedness taking place in the world. We are witnessing the display of violent acts that are mind blowing. The key to maintaining our ability to function without shrinking in fear is to relentlessly pursue intimate communion and fellowship with our Holy God.
Focusing on God helps us to calmly deal with the events of this world without stressing out over the rapid succession of these savage evil doings. Our only peace is Christ.
We must humbly approach Him, trusting that He is able to keep us in the midst of the fallout all around us. When we set out to seek God, He then sets out to meet with us. It is in Him approaching us that we gain the favor we need in order to have confident hope no matter the situation.
Grace and peace to you.
