Reflection: God had you in mind when he set up an agreement. You might even call it a “covenant”. The agreement is this: If you draw near to God (through prayer and meditation on his word in Scripture), he will draw near to you. It is extraordinary, isn’t it, that the God of the universe should make that commitment to us.
Jesus echoed something of this truth when he said: ‘Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be open to you’ (Luke 11:9).
Each of us will have knocked on the door of friend and been disappointed to discover no one at home. We experience a sense of disappointment, of let down and of hope deferred. However, God promises to always be there for you. When he sees you coming, he will walk towards you.
I invite you to take full advantage of this promise.
Prayer: Dear Father, the love you have that causes you to draw near to us, is wonderful and beyond understanding. I want to fully honour your love, and draw near to you––all of my days.
