God desires an up-close and personal relationship with us. Do you believe that? Do you live like that is the truth, or are you more apt to live like God sits apart, looking down from above – a kind observer maybe? This week, take time to examine scripture that details God’s love and desire to have a real relationship with you – not from afar, but side by side – right where you are. Journal, meditate and pray about what God reveals to you in His Word this week.
Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
