12 WAYS TO GET CLOSER TO GOD RIGHT NOW

Whether you are seeking a greater purpose in life, are a new believer, or have walked with Jesus for a long time, these simple tips will remind you that getting closer to God is just one small act away. Spend some time with God today, and you will be blessed and refreshed.
 

1.     Get quiet. Turn off the radio and TV, step away from your computer, put away your phone, and find a quiet spot to simply rest in God’s presence. 


2.     Read your bible. Underline, highlight, or write out passages, verses, phrases or words that speak to you. These are the gifts that keep on giving when you need encouragement down the road. 


3.     Write out your prayers in a dedicated notebook; these can be for others or yourself. Then spend time in prayer. 


4.     Go for a walk and talk with God. Share your heart: what is troubling you, what you are thankful for, and your hopes and dreams. He listens. 

5.     Meditate on Scripture. Choose a verse or short passage, read it several times, and invite the Holy Spirit to speak to you about what you have learned in the context of what’s happening in your life right now. 


6.     Put on some worship music and immerse yourself in the melody and lyrics. Sing along, dance…or just listen. Let the Holy Spirit minister to you. 


7.     Marvel at the world God has created. Walk in the forest, sit by a bubbling stream, watch a mother bird feed her young, or drive out in the country for a picnic. Let the experience soak in. 


8.     Journal what God has been speaking to you about today. 


9.     Share what God has done for you with a friend or family member. Witnessing is a powerful tool for our own spiritual growth, and pleases the Lord. 


10. Do something for someone else without expecting anything in return.

11. Use the gifts God has given you. If He has called you to create, then create. If He has called you to administer, then administer. If He has called you to shepherd, then shepherd. 


12. Fast. Fasting brings clarity of mind and combined with any of the above, gives you the potential for a remarkable encounter with God.

 

BONUS: Be grateful. Count, and thank God for, your blessings every day.

She longs to be filled by Your Holy Spirit to guide, protect, and nurture her. She knows she needs You in her life. May the Holy Spirit rise up in her. May she feel You especially close to her today. May she be filled with Your love and compassion. May she keep her eyes on You. May she take time every day to spend quiet time with You. You know her needs. You know her heart. May she rise up and become a great warrior for You, Lord. In Jesus's name I pray this, Amen.

    Dear Bongiwe: As we are growing in relationship with the Lord, our closeness to God can ebb and flow with the seasons. I also have had seasons when I have felt closer to God through the voice the Holy Spirit speaking to me, and seasons when it has felt like a dry and thirsty land. When we are in those dry seasons, it is a prompt to us to conscientiously take the time to get quiet with the Lord and do all those things He longs for us to do: talk to Him, pray to Him, read the Word, fellowship with other believers, spend time in nature, journal what God is speaking to you today, and more. If you have gotten busy because of your responsibility as a spouse, I encourage you to spend time with your spouse in prayer so that you can grow in relationship with God together. Thank you for sharing and for your blessing. I am praying for you right now.

    Hi Debby, thanks so much for your kind words and for reaching out. Honestly, the best thing to do is show by example; make a choice yourself, if you haven't already, to be selective about what you let your eyes see in images and print. Show by example a godly life. The teenage years are difficult for everyone, a time when your children are trying to figure out who they are and what they believe. They may stray from the path for a while. Remember to pray daily for them, and continue to be both a rock and a soft landing for them so they know if they need the safety of home, you will be always be there for them. Make sure you include family time weekly if not daily. Invite them to watch Christian movies with you. There are many impactful movies out there. One of the best for teens is the movie "Because of Gracia" by filmmaker Tom Simes, who happens to be a friend of mine. It hits upon many themes pertinent to teenagers today and has been life impacting for many teens. Look for books that will help you navigate this time with your teens. There is much more I could say, but hopefully this is a start. I am praying right now for you and your teenager.

    Dear Delilah: Thank you for reaching out. God loves the people He created, you and me and everyone else, unconditionally, that means, without conditions or questions. Nevertheless, each one of us sins in our own way, and it is God's desire that we turn to Him and pledge our lives to Him so that our heart is to live as pure and kind a life as possible to His glory. The Lord would be pleased if you would pray for your friend. Bring your prayers to God and He will answer, in His own way and His own time. The most important thing God calls us to do is to love Him and love our friends and neighbours as we would want to be loved. These are the two greatest commandments. Amen.

    Hi Ruby! This is not something I can speak to personally, but God's Word gives us direction as to how to deal with ANY temptation. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it." Every time you find you need to look at porn, pray that God will give you a "way of escape" so that you will be able to overcome the temptation. I encourage you to read your bible daily and in time your internal desires will align with the Lord's. I will pray for you too.

    Dear Imogen: Thank you so much for sharing your personal story. Our life on this earth is a journey. There will be times when we feel very close to the Lord and times when we take a step or two back through our own choices that are not the best in the Lord's eyes. We all are imperfect, but praise God, Jesus has intervened for us on the cross. So when we make mistakes or bad choices, we can pick ourselves up and try again. As time goes on and we mature, we get better at listening to and hearing the Holy Spirit nudging us away from the things God doesn't want for us. Recognizing our faults is the first step; repenting allows us to receive His forgiveness fully. Don't forget to forgive yourself. Imogen, I praise God for you; He sees your heart and wants to bless you. I am praying for you Imogen. Keep your eyes on Jesus and you will go on to mighty things in His name. God bless.

    Dear Sally, thank you so much for this. I’ve been neglecting time with God and spending too many hours of my day flicking through social media, Youtube etc. As a result I’ve been sleeping late and feeling tired, lost, empty, and depressed without God. Drifting away from God has even made me question what’s the purpose of living. Thank you for your timely reminder to not bow to the ways of this world, because the joy and peace God brings is beyond these earthly and material things. And I am reminded again that my purpose in this world, as with my brothers and sisters in Christ, is to bring more people to God, to get to know Him and His Goodness, and to bring glory to Him in whatever we do. I am rejuvenated to get back to daily bible-reading and hope to maintain spiritual discipline. I already am starting to feel close to God by making this decision, which is such a reassuring sign from Him. Thank you Lord, and thank you Sally! Really, really appreciate all that you’ve shared with us. God bless.

    Dear Sheila: What an encouraging comment and a great reminder to all of us to remember our purpose while we are here on this earth! Thank you for that! I also have fallen prey to the black mire of social media at times, but I am getting better at recognizing when I need to pull away and press into the Lord through prayer, time with Him, and spending time in the Word. I love to read His Word daily and yes, it is a bit of a discipline. But now I look forward to spending that quiet time with Him every day in the evening before I go up to bed. Blessings to you as you continue your spiritual walk with the King of Kings.

    Really appreciate the steps, have helped me heap more courage in God's word, I really agree the Word do exist and do Work within and among us as long as we draw closer to Him, I slipped back in months ago, and now I really feel sorry for the time lost; but now I completely lean and Hold on to Him on daily basis, and this article has added much more fuel on my way.... God bless you
