James 4:8 NIV
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded
God doesn't walk away from us, it is us who walk away from God.
If we come close to God by reading His word, doing His will, rebuking our sins asking for forgiveness and set our hearts on God, He will come close to us.
The first part of this verse I love! It is so comforting knowing God will come close to us if we come close to Him. The second part stings! Not the sinners or purify part but the double minded. I don't want to be this way yet I know when I exalt something higher than God I am being double minded. Pride, anger, even righteous anger if I carry on in it too long then that becomes my God. Forgive me Father for serving the flesh instead of You.
