Drawing closer to God is a personal decision that every child of God must make in one’s walk with God, although the devil will always do a lot of gimmicks to make us look so far away from God by making us fall short of God’s glory. Sin separates us from God; therefore, it is expedient for us to try as much as possible to do away from any appearance of evil.
To draw closer to God we must do the following steps.
- Be led by the spirit always. Sometimes you will hear some believers say things like, let us live Christianity aside, this statement must never proceed out of any child of God. Never leave Christianity aside. Galatians 5:16 says” So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
- To be able to walk in the spirit you must study the word of God. According to Joshua 1:8 which says’ Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
- Attend a bible believing church, where the word of God is preached undiluted. Proverbs 27:17 says” As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.
- Do away with unfriendly friends that do not add value to your spirituality and walk with God. Psalm 1:1 says” Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
- Pray always. Communicating with God always, is paramount to our Christian journey on earth. As it has been rightly said that prayer is communion with God. You cannot say You are a child of God and not communicate with Him. Communication is the key in any relationship.
